My fist attempt at cloning

Hello guys and gals, I’m just trying to clone my GSC. I did the aloe Vera method for 24 hrs, then planted cutting into perlite/ peat moss/vermiculite. Misted it for the next few days with ph’d rain water @ 6.5. Never wilted, it has been cover and kept at 80 to 100% humidity. It has had its dome on since the sept 23, when should I stop misting and remove dome. @bob31 @Dumme @Niala @garrigan65 @Countryboyjvd1971 IMG_2541 IMG_2542

@Mrcrabs 7-10 days is the safest bet. I had enough roots that was able to support the clone after 6 days. I’m not sure if yours may be longer if you didn’t use rooting hormone. I was able to check some cloned males that had to go. :skull: hope that helps.

You’ll know, when it starts pushing new growth @Mrcrabs. That’s a good indicator that it’s established itself.

@Myfriendis410 I will keep a close eye on it. It hasn’t showed any sings of stress. Hope it makes it . Will keep you updated on the aloe Vera and rain water rooting solution.

I use a home made bubble cloner, for less then $30 at Wal-Mart I can clone with nothing but oh water and a :100:% rooting every time. My wife was so thoughtful and ordered me a bottle of clonex with out saying anything before it got here. I used it 1 time worked great. Then I built my bubble cloner, now all I use the clonex for is when I over split a branch but super cropping to much. Like a bandaid. . I tried the clonex in the cloner and imo didn’t really help, but a tsp of rooting power in the ph 5.8 water worked a little better but as far as time there all about the same with or without rooting agents.
Just a thought, good luck and keep growing better every time. .

@Wishingilivedina420state. Sounds like a cool contraption. I love diy projects! I grow all organic so I don’t put any chemicals in my grows, I’m afraid to kill the life cycle of my soil. Thanks for info

If you’re staying organic, honey can be a good alternative to rooting hormones.

Yes, I might try that also, just that I have lots of aloe Vera in our gardenimage

@dbrn32 but now that you mentioned that my buddy is the care taker of lot of orange fields, they always have lots of honey bee hives. I’m for sure Gona barter some honey for bud.:v:t3:

Tried that didn’t work with regular honey. Ask @FloridaSon what type you need I forget.I thinks it’s unrefined honey might work.
