You should be plenty good. They’ll generally tell you if there’s an issue, but I wouldn’t expect you’ll see one.

No, the aloe got strained out and the remainder in the mix shouldn’t affect anything at all.

I meant the chunk of aloe that you use like a starter cube. What becomes of that?

I throw into the compost pile, I use the cheese cloth to drain before I use on planted clones and when I’m done I just get rid of them. I don’t let aloe chunks get into soil. I only water with aloe the first time, after that just rainwater.

So what happens to that chunk of aloe the clone is sticking in once it is planted in the soil?

I freeze that aloe and use it as a foilar feed. 5ml per gallon. I save my good aloe and get rid of my used one. I was thinking the one in the jar. Just a little to medicated. Have a good night my friend.

Sorry for the late reply. Had friends stay with us this weekend and spent time with family this evening. When I clone with water only, I take my cuttings…Then I snip the bottom at a 45 degree-ish angle… Then I take the side of my trimmers or a razor blade and shave the bottom inch all the way around which helps with rooting. Then I put them in a glass of tap water, stick em in the window sill and a week or two later usually at least half have roots. I usually put 4 cuttings to a glass and pick the best looking ones and give the others to a buddy or toss them. I have photos posted on my other thread somewhere. I’ll dig them up if you want.

No problem buddy, i use my aloe also as a foilar feed. I use 5ml per gallon and spray them 15mins before lights out, thanks for the info on biobizz act-Vera, I’m learning new stuff as well, differ products containing aloe like the one you mentioned and @BlackShirt mentioned aloe powder. This aloe powder should works like raw aloe Vera, just incase you don’t have access to Raw Aloe vera.
