Well said Irie lion. My tops usually take 7/10 longer but it's worth it when she grabs.Hey Al, hope you're doing well.
I haven't been around in a bit but everything is still looking healthy in there Those pots are big, nice work on the transplants! Your training is looking good and it's sure starting to look very promising in there.
Good luck with the clones. For some reason cloning has become one of my favourite things to do when it comes to growing cannabis. Iv'e found when trying to root cuttings from the main apical stem they generally take longer to produce auxins compared to cuts taken from side branching. My last main top i cut from a Glue X Sour Grape took 23 days to root compared to the side branch cuts of the same plant that all rooted in 16 days. Also iv'e done side by side comparisons of the same clones in coco jiffy pucks and then straight into soil as you did - and the soil cut definitely took longer to root.
All in all it's good you're experimenting, as it's basically free to do and i have no doubts you will be growing from clone some time in the future.
Keep up the great work Al!
