    Attack of the clones

    Decided to try a manifold. In the process wanted to try and clone the tops. We'll see if they live. Click image for larger version

    Hey just to let you know, there are hormones inside that rooting gel that become activated when it touches the plant material.
    Next time take a clean spoon and scoop out what you need for that day. If you need more, use another clean spoon to scoop more out. That gel only lasts so long so try to not let plant material contact it unless it is being used right away. Store any remaining in the refrigerator.

    They don't look so good. I read that cloning the tops was a challenge. There were other cuttings I should have thought about using. We'll see if they can come back

      To get them to root, try just plain tap water. Rock wool works too but you have to soak it in 5.5 pH first. Otherwise will have issues.
      Anyway you never want to add nitrogen (found in soil) to make them root. Nitrogen inhibits root growth.

      They aren't gone yet- dome them up

    Those clones had huge, heavy tops and when they started to go limp, they just laid right over. Are you trying to LST before it even has any roots? There is a good chance that they might bounce back, I've pulled cuttings out of the trash after several days and set them in water and as long as they weren't super crispy, they sprouted roots.

      I topped four plants for a manifold. I trimmed to the third node and there were 6/7 nodes so those clones are the big tops. No LST yet at all. I will keep spraying and tending and see if they recover. maybe I should have kept them in water for a few days before trying to get them in the cubes?

    Ok, looking again I can see now that you were trying to prop them up. I'm not very good at cloning so I just chuck them in water until they have roots then straight to soil. No more dome, peat pellets, misting, none of that. Best of all, no more stress or wondering if there are roots in that pellet. They get a cup of water to keep the stem wet, that's it, glance inside once a day to check the water level and see if there are any roots.

        I just figured out what happened. You rooted in the cubes then you transplanted to soil. The first day or two during the transplant to soil you want the humidity to be way up. I place mine under the dome. Then remove the dome after 24 hours. ...if they start to slump, they go back under the dome for another 24 hours then repeat.

      Three weeks later - They straightened up, grew roots and now are in pots. Some foliar spray feeding along the way helped them perk up. I thought for sure they were d-e-a-d, dead.

          I use plant tap water too. It’s an aero cloner. I can see algae growth on the top where the inserts fit into if I don’t consistently keep it clean. No NPK added.

          Hmm, I'm getting interested now. How long does it take for you to see signs of algae growth after a good cleaning? I wonder if it has to do with the aeroponics vs stagnant water?

          2-3 weeks or so. Yes, water can splash onto the top and leaving it there stagnant will eventually lead to algae.

        All of these roots were grown under HPS pretty much 24/0.

        These grew in the bowl which is dark but has a clear lid that allows lots of light in and is also under HPS 24 hours a day.

          Clones got a serious defoliation today. They seem super bushy and dense. Also a little more "woody" than the seeds. They are growing well that is for sure. Some LST as well. Using them to learn on has been a real eye opener.

            I have a Creme de la Chem that is 70/30 Indica/Sativa and looks just like that. Short, super bushy, wide leaves and tight node spacing. She is proving to be more difficult to train for me.

          They loved the defoliation. 12/12 as of today.
