    Already 7 days from seeds getting wet. Here are the 3 with minor surgery needed to remove the helmets from 2 of them. No harm done.

    Started the Dbl Grape & Creme de la Chem with both showing a tap root after 20 hrs. Going to be full tents again in a short while.

    So far batting 100% germination rate so very happy with the start.

        Coming to the end of week one and a really good germination rate going on in here.

        I am curious as to how all you cloners are coming along?
        Anybody got clone roots?

          All of mine are still upright, and maybe even growing a little bit bigger since I cut them, but I didn't do any bare roots in water this time. They're in 2" net cups with either hydroton, perlite or rockwool over bubbling tap water. Other cuttings are in either biorooters or jiffy pellets. None have wilted yet.

        hey FunkyButtLovin , is that how you start all your clones?? just put them in water till roots grow? WTH? lol. I have a helluva time starting clones!? ..my son's buddy says he puts them in water and sticks them on window sill and thats it. I'v tried rooting powder in tap water,bottled water,ph'd water, and it seems to take forever.(like weeks?) then i usually forget to change water daily and it gets a bit murky. The last clones i did get started, i ended up sticking them in grow medium cause they wernt doing anything in the water.

          All my clones have been taken using just water; I do use an opaque container/cover but other than that nothing other than sunlight and making sure the container is full. Water is PH'ed but that's it. Occasionally I've had to trim some roots when repotting (my record is 8" when I finally remembered to check on it), that doesn't seem to slow them down.

        well they are all in the coco , my solo is in 5th picture , the second picture is of a sherbert cookie I'm not to optimistic with it the root riot dried out and I dont know if I caught it in time .

        the 6th and 7th picture is of my alcohol reclamation system ,this was the first time I have tried it ,its in the barn and the barn is still standing lol, I left the stall open so plenty of air , I ran the rice cooker with water in it to check the temp while cooking it got up to 180 degrees perfect for evaporating alcohol

          Rwise this was the first trial ,it worked a little but I think if I create a seal between rice cooker and copper it will improve, I was hoping that it would produce enough pressure to force steam into coil ,I got a little but when I lifted the cover a ton of vapor came out ,I have 2 jars of duff and 2 2 ounce jars one cbd and 1 sativa

        The Purple Maze Kush I had entered in the solo cup grow off never germinated. I exhumed the corpse, and replanted an Amnesia Lemon Kush seed that I salvaged from the grinder. Also planted another ALK I retrieved from the jar on the side of the same cup as a back up. Gave up on the PMK on the 5th, and planted the ALK the same day. "She" (hopefully) popped today, and looks quite vigorous after coming out of the grinder. She's coming to get ya!

          2nd dud so far she is a no show, i'll transplant anyway put her in the solo cup with a clear dome hat. She'll sit once again in warm area till she decides she wants to come out from under her covers. When I least expect her to she'll pop out fingers crossed.

            I had one like that recently, it stayed damp for like 5 or 6 days but never came up. It didn't decide to germinate until I reused the cup and soil it was in to pot a clone, then it was like Miracle on 420 Street and she came on up on Christmas.

          I'm really not that bothered anymore, my frustration ended when I harvested my 1st Black Cherry punch this morning. Was abit edgy over it but looking at my harvest on this plant cheered me up.

          #85
          Right.
          Here we go. Three seeds in coffee filters with H2O2 and Hannah Solo. Hannah is getting one of the seeds. The other two will be my next crop. They are Purple Hulk autos from MSNL.
          I was pondering a different medium and nutes than I've been using. In the end, I'm going to use the same soil and nutes. Only differences will be use of a 600 watt LED with veg/bloom switches on loan from a neighbor, and I'll be upping the nutes. There hasn't been a nute issue since I've been growing. I figure a close eye and a bit more fish squeezins will give me better results. Also better genetics.

            Still no cloners with roots? I figured at least a couple people would have roots leaving plugs by now. It looks like my method may not leave me too many days behind.

            Here's my likeliest contender, Alaskan Purple showing loads of baby nubs.

              I'm done with the dome and the light and the plugs and the gel and powder and misting and trimming leaves and the vents and filling troughs in the pan so it wicks up from the bottom and all the other bullshit that goes along with it. They root just fine in a simple cup of water and I can easily check to see if/when the roots start growing. Doing everything optimally will get roots at least a couple of days sooner but I'm not a commercial grower so that means pretty much nothing to me. I will probably buy or build an aeroponic setup if I start to get tired of the method I'm using now but it's so easy like this I don't know when that might be.

            Got a good feeding tonight, she will either get tip burn or a boost of go-grow something.

              The Good,the Bad, and the Ugly...I have a staggered germination going on..Good-2 started out fine after hitting coco, Bad-seems like the next 4 have a real problem shedding their shell husk. One of them even shed her shell but was trapped in a condom(lol) that i didnt see till i used my microscope. My wife had to help with that operation...hahaha.(2 picks, a razor and a magnifying glass) she doesnt even smoke. Got me a good-un right there...lol. The Ugly- biggest,fattest,best looking seed of them all----i think i might have drowned it. Soaked it in water for 10 hrs, it split open so put it in paper towel and a baggie, same as the other 4 that rooted but nothing ever came out of the shell.

                We have had a failure to launch over here at mission control.

                The sprouts are not coming up. I skipped the CFCs and put them under the 600w MH and I think I cooked them. Well, I know I cooked them.

                So, three beans are in the shot glass as of 5:30 PM Eastern. One of them will be my entry.

                If at first you don't succeed, drop another bean.

                  That's the spirit! My seedlings and clones always love the HIDs but I put them about 18" further away than typical veg distance. I usually put them on the floor of the tent in the spaces between big plants for a few days then incrementally lift them to normal distance over a few more days.

                  You got this! Clones only need enough light to read large print by. They're not trying to grow, they're trying to not die, and rooting takes a lot less light energy than vegetation. Clones LOVE curly CFLs.
