    Talking My DIY EZ-Cloner (really good way to clone)

    This is my first time cloning ever. I though i would share it with you all.
    I built my ez-cloner for just under 55$(for everthing) I though about getting a real one, but to pay 300 some odd $$$ to get a ez-cloner is a little steep i thought. So i got on to google looking for DIY stuff and found this guy that gose by the name KingRalph on International Cannagrafic that talks about making one of those ez-clones for under 60 bucks

    Here is what i made

    this is the pvc set up

    i cut 18 sites, you could do more, 18 is alot for me

    i cut my rings from some neopreme mats i had

    here is it running

    This is all good but dose it work??? so let us find out
    first off i'd like to say that i have no exp cloning, going by that i figer that i would have a higher rate of failer from my lack of exp. I was shooting for 12 clones so i took 17 cuttings (1 site has my power cords come out it)

    i took my cuttings at a 45 and placed them right into water after being cut, they where then placed in the cloner

    for water i just used tap i didnt bother with the ph it was really high like me, 7.6 or close to that

    it was really nice the clones never wilted the whole time they were in the cloner with no dome, no misting, no any thing just two t8 2ft away





    they all rooted in 7 day with the pump on 24/7 and water temp around 71. I dont know how hard of a strian danky doodle is to clone, 100% of my clones rooted. I was very imperssed on how well this worked. I ended up with 5 more clones then was needed for this run. 12 were put it to pot with soil, the smallest were thrown out (it's sad i wish i could have planted them out back)

    I think I let the roots grow to big before they where transplanted this is the most wilt i had the whole time. from what i've readed you should transplant when there 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch long. if your doing hydro you can let them grow longer.

    they all look alot better after a couple days, really starting to stretch, time to move the lights closer.

    thanks for reading
    and your input

    This is almost exactly what you buy when getting the botaincare 25 site cloner. The internals are made of PVC just like this. Only different is they fit it into a much smaller footprint which someone could do as well. Like say a 5 gallon bucket or similar smaller container.

    With that much PVC it may be difficult to keep the water pressure up for a optimal aero effect.

    For the next guy going DIY like this I really recommend scaling down as cloning solution (if used) isnt cheap to run in such a large container. My main reason for down sizing from a ezcloner to the smaller botanicare which uses roughly 1.5 gallons of res space and has a much smaller foorprint. (real estate in the GR is valuable )

    Smallzz;
    Very nice!
    I went to the hardware store today and got parts.
    I think half the fun is making it yourself.
    How did you hook the pump into the PVC?
    The diameters are different by a 1/4 inch.
    I'm kinda stumped for the moment......humm
    Anybody any ideas?
    I was think just some kinda of tubing and hose clamps.
    goin from 5/8" to 7/8"
    better smoke a bowl and let this one simmer a bit.


    Other wise this is easy to do! Your right about $55 to do it.

    Good job of sharing this!!!

    Re: My DIY EZ-Cloner (really good way to clone)

    Ive had mine running now for about 5 days!
    Works great! I went with a 14 gallon roughneck bin, (its a little smaller)
    Using a pump that does 396 and works just fine.
    Only thing im different on is I used baskets and rockwool instead of going naked...
    hummmm. any thoughts ???? anybody????
    This is very easy to do and less than $50 no problem!
