Here's my last one that is about 14 months old. I used to have a lot growing but gave them all away. My neighbors love me. This started as one small sprig in a glass of water. Water lightly once every two weeks, then maybe every third or fourth watering I use my old res. water for all my house plants. North facing window out of direct sun light. It is winter here and she is loving the cold window, and gets turned every couple of months. Don't move locations though. Loves being root bound but will tell you when to up pot. this one needs another six months or so. This thing will grow massive in the right spot but takes years to do so.Ahoy 420,
I am catching some grief from the wife about my "supposed" gardening skills. She has now purchased a fourth Aloe plant from the nursery and has politely asked me to ask my "real gardener friends on that 420 thing" so here I go. Has anyone ever gardened a Aloe plant and had it survive longer than a couple months? I have not. I kill them faster than cannabis clones, and that is fast. She has a fondness for that particular plant species and she acknowledges her lack of a green thumb. I on the other hand proudly claim to be capable, only to fail miserably three times and counting. Help!
Thanks shed ! Item has shipped And I have 3 plants at almost 8 weeks veg so I will definately try this soonThey have different dilutions for different types of plants. For most of my clones I use the 15x dilution because my cuts tend to have thicker stems. If I'm cutting really young growth then I would go with the 20x dilution.
I cut at a 45º angle and scrape the stem after cutting off the lower nodes with a razor blade so they're flush with the stem, and then I dip and swish for 5 seconds or so (I never count and I get distracted sometimes...). Then I slide the stems into pre-made holes in ProMix HP that has been soaked and drained of distilled water. I push the ProMix down and squeeze the sides of the clear solo cup to make sure there is good contact with the stem. Then I slide it into a solid solo cup and put a clear on top and place it on an 80º heat mat.
From there, I use the beez0404 cloning method!
My brother,Hey folk's i can't thank you enough for your encouragement (maritimer)#1 love growing feel's like living!
To be honest I cannot recall too much other than a pig floated in the air and eventually crashed down The Wall. Plus great music and all kinds of California eye candy walking around.Awesome story Maritimer. Also happy b'day. Glad you got to see The Wall, . Never got to see PF live myself.
