    I ended up having to take clones about 6 weeks into flower, and thought I would post my results.

    The cuttings rooted within 2 weeks like normal.

    It took a while for the clone to find its footing again and re-grow leaves, but after two weeks it looks perfectly normal.

    So, all in all, it seems it set me back about 10 days compared to a cutting taken earlier.

    yes! i have had mega producers dripping with trics and how i wished i had taken a clone or two. i have been waiting for someone to chirp in and say "hey, you can't do that." if you can go 6 weeks, how bout 7 ??

    chen, what pipe is that you are cloning in?? a ton of growth..

    How did you get it to not have to go through that 3 week or so ugly reveg?

    pretty amazing and very impressive---not the clone taking at week 6 in flower---but the reveg---i have never seen a plant take off like that in any stage of growth---seems your hydro mix is some sort of super elixir---please share what you are feeding---how large is the tube you are growing in---why is it wrapped in mylar---what about your lighting---please tell more???

    The science behind it is sound, with the increased phosphates typically seen by week 1 of bloom, the nutrient profile is more akin to what the plant wants to build roots during early veg/clone when the plant will forgo N in favor of these... (if youve ever noticed a drop in ph in early seedlings and freshly rooted clones, this is why.. Your plants are forgoing N in favor of the P to help build roots, lowering the ph of medium)

    The faster rooting makes perfect sense..

    One of the best breeders I know is Nspecta from CSI and the Pirates of the emerald triangle and he does this weird thing where he basically pheno hunts by doing a 1 month veg from seed, and then takes all his cuttings 3 weeks into bloom after the stretch.. Not sure why he does this, but he does have to reveg a little but says by the first month of veg the plants are rockin and rollin..
