So my plant although small and not without issue has been growing pretty good lately. I took a few inches off of both of my tops and they’re not coming back. Which sort of sucks but this has caused the rest of the shoots to head for the light and they have been making inches and giving me some new cloning material.
About a week ago I attempted to take 3 or 4 clones, in my homemade hydrocloner type deal, they got very limp after I cut them and pretty much withered away. Last week I tried to take three more small shoots and unfortunately I was too busy to continue to keep them moist and they got too dry and turned to dust.
Today I took 8 shoots total, immediately transferred them to water after cutting, cleaned my scissors before each cut, removed them from the water, dipped in rooting hormone, and three of these went into peat moss pucks and 4 went into my hydro cloner, which is not black.
Two questions I want to ask is, how important is light for clones? I know the roots don’t want light but how important is it for the plant to build roots as far as light goes? Secondly…I can’t remember.
Does anyone have advice as to what I might be doing wrong or what I can do to help the success of these guys? The first ones I tried to take off the tops of my plant literally just got super limp, and then eventually started rotting almost.
