This is a 3 day old Amnesia Haze clone. I used aloe vera as a rooting gel and the “plastic bag” technique. Please let me know if I took a large enough branch. The branch is from the bottom area of the mother.
@AMUSED2DEATH Branch looks fine. Did you use a rooting hormone too or just Aloe?
Plastic bag works well… keep that rh high.
Just dipped it in an aloe branch, no additional rooting hormone.
@AMUSED2DEATH Ok. So was there any root development before you put it in the soil?
no I cut the stem cleared the fan leaves dipped it into aloe stem and stuck it in the soil. I am using a technique I saw on youtube. In the video he did it this way and was 12 for 12…
Sounds good. I’ve never used that technique but hey, let’s see what happens…
Using methods you are familar with, how long does it take from cutting day to 5 leafed seedling?
In my experience it can take a variant amount of time. Depends on the strain and aggressiveness of the plant. I would say an average would be 2 weeks until soil.
I take the cuts and shave off the epidural layer of the stalk. After that I dip into a rooting hormone and then suspend in water. I’ll wait a couple days until I see root formation (little white bumps/extensions on the stalk) then transplant to the soil/medium/dwc.
