Are u shavin the end and cutting at 45’degree ang and then leave in water if it stays strong then yr good if not then do same again but make sure you hit stem I hope that helps fam
I shave bottom and notch opposite side of shaved side.
Actually trimming the tips of the leaves helps the leaf take in moisture I understand what you’re saying the Leaf tips lose water but in the dome the humidity so high that the leaves can’t lose water and the only way it can absorb moisture is through the leaves until root growth has started and you will notice the root growth starting by the leaves turning yellow since the media is so moist that they yellow almost immediately when Roots pop because they have too much moisture available then they need to come out of the Dome into soil and dry out immediately or they will rot
so one good tip let your cuttings soak in RO water right from the tree… overnight to suck up as much water and plump up before you cut the 45 scrape the stem and do all that dipping and sticking you an actually leave them in RO for over a week and still use them no problem just keep the cut submerged cometly also take your cuttings when the plant is in its most vigorous stage if not Taken shortly after a shock. The plants clones will have little to no chance
Yea i do but i just learned to grow from seed i have better luck lol
This is great, lots of good info. Thanks for sharing everyone.
Wat u mean aloe Vera hand gel or something cause I have 99% aloe Vera
I’ve had great success with aloe, Raw aloe leaf @Shuggz , and have also had great results with bubble cloner, just rain water no chemicals at all. I try and pick out the clone from the Lower branches, if they have a bit of niterogen deficency those are the ones I cut, they seem to root faster. Lots of different ways to clone your favorite strain. @Drillbit how’s it going my friend ? thanks for the tag, I’m going to set to watching great thread.
Do some strains clone better than others??
Oh yea strains that are really woody stems at small diameter are difficult to me this gsc cross I have I love it’s leaf colors and it just won’t take. Any I’ve tried except one .everything else I got no problems cloning tried it quiet a few times only got 1 off the gsc bag seed
It’s odd to me that you say they hermi on you. It sounds like they get to the flower stage, which means they rooted. To me, once they’re rooted, that’s a successful clone. Kind of semantics, but if you can grow from seed, a rooted cutting should be no different. I wonder what goes wrong with the clones . .
I have no clue i i actually wounder if i use to much light while their trying to root
I use just a flourecent light or 1 or 2 cfl 23w 6500k bulbs and works
Yea ive got a cheap 50w cob that works great for seedlings i do have some cheap plant lights that are only 13 w mabey i will try to hook these up for clones.
Cob is led correct? If so then my guess would be that its too intense of light? Im start that experienced yet but someone will know better on here. Im not a forum or computer guy but so glad i stumbled onto ILGM for sure!!!
Yea thats me i can navigate this forum and thats about the extent of my knowledge
@Mrcrabs did you make your bubbler clones machine or buy it. If you made it, could you explain the build??
I made it, but I’m pressed for time, after work I can give you some detailed pics @Familyman
