FIRST I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE MEMBERS HOW REPLY. Thank you for your time and knowledge that you will be CONTRIBUTING. This is my first grow. I have made lots of mistakes. I'm very grateful to have been BLESSED by all the HELP I've received with my 3 plants that are in soil. My # 1 is a lady that i was to rough with her. More then once or twice. So now I have 3 broken branches. The first broken branch was a lower branch. I did not take pictures i was in a rush and wanted to saver her. "That was even before i fond out that #1 is a LADY.

I just made the 45 degree angle cut and put it in a ENSURE bottle with water PH at 5.6. I saw a guy put some cuttings in a regular water bottle with tap water and it rooted it took about 2-3 weeks. HEY I'M NEW AND LEARNING AS I GO. AND "I'M LOVING IT". I had an empty FOLGERS COFFEE CONTAINER so i covered it with black plastic bags and used a couple of rubber bands to hold the bag in places. I Got an air pump and made a 1 clone BUBBLER.. Then another branch broke. I put in the FOLGERS COFFEE CONTAINER "BUBBLER" for a day or two.I went to the dollar store got 2 "PLASTIC SHOE BOXES". I made a 11 SLOT BUBBLER. I hot glued the 2" air stones to the bottom of the inside of the PLASTIC SHOE BOX i made each slot 1 1/4 in.

When the 3rd branch broke off i made the 45 degree cut under running water. I put in the cutting in the bubbler and after a few hours the cutting looked good.

GREAT GREEN NEW YEAR TO ALL OF . . . . . . . :420:

I will continue this thread will a broken branch. . . :3:
That I broke down into 10 cutting. . . . . . ;)

I've learned so much in the last 4 months. I'm still working on the first grow. Everything is getting easier and more manageable for me. Especially now that weed is growing in CROUTONS "GROW CUBES"
I will make an attempt to explain why I stop the bubbler. I was going to say that the bubbler didn't work. Well the bubbler worked it's just that the bubbler can't do it by it self. . . . :laugh: . . . :laugh:

BASICALLY I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT I WAS DOING. . :30: . :hmmmm:
I HAD THE STEM IN THE WATER. . . . .:oops: . . . . TO ANYONE THAT IS GOING TO USE A BUBBLER.

This is what I was doing wrong. . . . :smokin2:
I had the cuttings under the same lights as the the bigger plants. My lights where (12- 26 watts cfls + 1 clamp light with 2-26watts cfls in total 364 watts). I had no dome over the cuttings. I wasn't controlling the temp or the humidity.
I WOULD SUGGEST doing a search for "bubbler cloner" right here at . . . :420: . . . WeeD have numerous threads on the topic from "DIY BUBBLER OR AERO CLONERS" AND HOW TO MAINTENANCE YOUR CLONER. Goto youtube and watch some cloning videos so you can see how to trim the leaf tips and remove some growth. You want the air bubbles splashing water on the stems you don't want the stems submerged. The thicker the stem the longer it will take to root also you want a lot less light on your clones, you want them to focus on root growth not veg growth. One 15-20 watt daylight cfl will work fine "depending on how many clones you have". One light isn't going to work for 10 clones "THE CUTTINGS ARE NOT CLONES UNTIL THEIR ROOTED" If the stem is rotting then its probably sitting in the water which you don't want. You want the stem about an inch or two above the water. If the stem is rotting and you have enough length left on the stem trim the rotten section off and re-trim it at a angle then put a little slice in the end of the stem. After I started to get my cutting to root the air stone I hot glued to the bottom got loose and broke the the root of my last broken branch. I was using a pool noodle to hold the cutting in place. The noodle was letting the stem get wet. I WOULD SUGGEST. . . . :50:
NEXT TIME I WILL BE USING A 2 INCH NET POT AND NEOPRENE COLLAR

GREEN EVENING . . . . :420: . . . . I CAN HONESTLY SAY I MISSED . . :rollit: . . UPDATING MY JOURNAL . . . . AND :reading420magazine:

RainStacks Yesterday after I fed #4 I started to attend to Linda and I noticed that the lower branch was barely attached to the main stem. It wasn't something that just happened overnight. As the branch was moved and tied down it was being pulled and slowly detaching. I saw the branch leaning when went to lift and straighten it there was a big space between the branch and the main stem. The branch was hanging by a few threads. . . . . :smokin2: . . . . think , think I said to myself as I . . . . :roorrip: . . . . :idea: . . IN THE NAME OF LEARNING I GENTLY PULLED AND THE BRANCH CAME OFF . . . . :11:

12-2-13 WAS Monday I will always remember that day I had a VISITOR I do not have many VISITORS . . :laugh:

Anywho I DID NOT SAY ANYTHING. . .:3:

I JUST INTRODUCED Linda AND THE BROKEN BRANCH . . ;)

MY VISITOR SIMPLY SAID WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WITH THAT? :50:

I SAID " I'M NOT GOING TO THROW IT AWAY THAT'S FOR SURE . . :laugh: . . :laugh:

OK THE VISITOR SAID I WILL TRY TO HELP YOU BUT I CAN'T DO MUCH BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE. . . . THEN THE VISITOR STOPPED AND ASKED WHAT DO YOU HAVE I SIMPLY SMILED AND STARTED TO PULL OUT EVERYTHING THAT I HAD INVESTED IN . . :laugh: . . :laugh:
THE VISITOR JUST SMILED BACK AND MADE A CALL, HE SAID MY WIFE IS GOING TO PICKUP THE KIDS . . :3:

FIRST THING WE DID WAS RUN THE COLD WATER IN THE TUB. HE SAID THAT I CAN KEEP CUTTINGS IN COLD WATER FOR UP TO 24 HOURS, YOU CAN EVEN PUT THEM IN THE REFRIGERATOR HE SAID IF I HAD TO IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY "A BROKEN BRANCH AND YOU DON'T HAVE CLONING STUFF". I FILLED A 5 GAL BUCKET MORE THEN HALF WAY WITH COLD TAP WATER. I ADJUSTED THE PH TO 6.5 THEN HE SUBMERGED THE BROKEN BRANCH 5 MIN LATER THE BRANCH WASN'T LOOKING AS WILTED. WE LOOKED AT THE BRANCH AND HE SAID, I WOULD NEVER TRY TO CLONE A BRANCH THIS BIG I SEE 4-5 NICE LITTLE BRANCHES THAT WILL HAVE A REAL GOOD CHANCE TO ROOT. I SAID OK, HE CUT THE BRANCH IN HALF AT THE AND HE HANDED ME 5 CUTTINGS THE TOP, THE BOTTOM AND A FEW IN BETWEEN. HE SAID PUT THE Grodan Rockwool Cubes (1.5 Inches) IN THE BUCKET WITH THE CUTTINGS AND PUT SOME ROOTING POWDER IN A LITTLE CUP USING IT OUT OF THE BOTTLE IS UNCOMFORTABLE. HE PREPARED 1 BY MAKING A 45 DEGREE ANGLE CUT AND THEN DIPPING THE STEM IN THE ROOTING POWDER. HE SAID TO DIP THE STEM THE LENGTH YOUR GOING TO STICK IN THE GROW CUBE. HE SAID PUT SOME WATER PH 6.5 ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PROPAGATOR FOR HUMIDITY AND THE CUTTINGS WILL START TO REACH FOR THE WATER SO MAKE SURE YOUR WATER PH IS 6.5 THEN HE BLESSED ME WITH SOME MORE INSTRUCTION "WITCH I DID NOT FOLLOW WORD FOR WORD I'LL GET TO THAT LATER", HE ASKED ME TO PREPARE 1 OF THE CUTTINGS MYSELF. I DID, HE SAID "AWESOME" I SEE YOU CAN DO IT YOURSELF THIS VISIT IS OVER.

Don't feel badly, we have all snapped stems. After training they can get woodier and are more likely to snap, we have all learned this the hard way. Sometimes even if there is just a small amount connecting if you tape it up, they can heal. I have seen this happen a few times. You may want to use some hydrogen peroxide to clean the wound and prevent any type of infection. You can use Elmer's glue to seal the scar too.

Looking good man, well done. One thing about the Elmers, try not to get it wet if you can. It can get gummy at the surface. Also with the clones, cut off more of the big fan leaves, you can cut them in half too. The plant needs roots to keep big leaves like that up. You are doing an awesome job. The plants are looking happier than ever! +reps

if your cuttings root do you plan to switch to flowering?


EXCUSE ME KJC for last post TO TOO HIGH . . . . :laugh:

Switching the cuttings to flower?
or
Switching Linda to flower?

KJC to be honest with you I don't know if I'm going to flower or veg the cuttings in the same growing medium I've been using.

The hydro store is a NO GO . . . . Oh well I just ordered a 15"X 11" seedling heat pad be here by the Wednesday. . . . :3:

KJC I have a few Questions for you. . . . :3:

Monday morning I put the cuttings in the dome and in the cabinet for 24 hours in complete darkness.

Right now I'm leaving the dome off for an hour a day.

How long should I leave the dome open or should I not take the dome off?

What should I do about lights for the cuttings? 18/6?

Should I use low watts to encourage the cutting to focus on root growth not veg growth?

KJC should I keep at least 15-20 watts to stop the stretching?
or

Can I put the cuttings with Linda And #4?

Would all my light be to much for the cutting?

I just took the dome of 5 min ago

when i asked if your cuttings root if you will switch to flowering i was referring to flowering your larger plant. I would leave the dome on your cuttings until you have them rooted into clones. I would keep your cuttings under 18/6 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness under compact florescent lights until they are rooted into clones. Cuttings do not require high intensity lighting to root. When you notice roots coming from your rockwool you should begin to harden the clones to a lesser humidity air as your ambient room air slowly by either opening vents in the dome or removing the dome for larger periods of time.



green evening kjc . . . :thanks:

Yes i will be switching linda to flowering and #4 later on. I'm thinking . . . . Wait last time i was . . :rollit: Thinking i had a laughing meditation . . . :laugh:
Back on top i'm thinking about getting a tent that i can put a 400w maybe a 600w air cooled something :3: I started on some old shooting from the hip . . . . :laugh:

When is it a good time to start growing? :50:

As soon as you have 40 dollars and some "bag seeds, rockwool cubes, ph test kit. . . . . And most importantly the will to start. . . . . . :laugh: . .:16: . . :19:

Wow, thats what happens after . . :51: . . Kjc i have to figuer out what i can do, before spending money :3:

I haven't made any investment over 20 dollars at one time besides the an nutes. Just little add-ons.

Kjc to be honest with you i just "needed a win" an eb, "ego buster" . Even if its a pyrrhic one right

now:30: At times i think i should invest in . . . . :30: . . . :50:

I think it was the the capn that said "growing is 10% equipment and 90% growr". . . . So i most plan on how am i going to invest in my future. . :tokin:

Thats a decition i most make by christmas. . . . :laugh: . . . . :19:

In your opinion what's a decent size tent for flowering 4 plants?

I have t think about the future. . . :3:

the size of tent you require all depends on how large of harvest you want. personally I would place 4 plant in a 5'x5' or 6'x6' tent and use a 1000 watt High Intensity Discharge light or LED lights and grow large plants that I would get a large harvest from. I flower in 5 gallon size pots.

:thanks: . . . . KJC

I'm thinking 2 plant in a 5'x5' or 6'x6' tent and use a 600 watt to start with. . . :3:

Linda and #4 are in 3 gallon size pots, I'm going to flower in 5 gallon pot.

Should I wait 1 or 2 afte poting up before I can put them into fowering ?

Your prefer HID over HPS?

KJC if i get a 1000 watt can I turn it down to a 600 watt or a 400 watt?

Whats your opinion on 1000 Watt HPS + MH Digital Grow Light W/ 6" Air Cooled Hood/digital dimmable electronic ballast. 50% 75% 100% power level?

KJC what's dimmable the ballast or the bulb?

KJC THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME . . . . . . . . . . . .:Namaste:


Looking great IS! Your posts always make me smile. You are a very creative guy! Only thing I can add is, when you are using wire to train, make sure you dont pin any fan leaves upside down. They pretty much only photosynthesize face up. It sounds like you have a very solid plan for the grow!

My choice of equipment would be a 1000 watt Digital Dimable Ballast. Some Digital Dimable Ballasts use an overdrive feature called the Super Lumen setting over driving the light bulbs by 10% this is within tolerance. The Digital Dimable Ballasts are capable of being dimmed to 75%, 50% or less. I use Lumatek Digital Dimable Ballasts that have a 3 year warranty. I also use Cooltubes with inline 400 CFM fans to keep my grow area temperatures reasonable. A HID is a High Intensity Discharge ballast that uses either Metal Halide or High Pressure Sodium light bulbs. I use a Metal Halide light bulb for vegetative growth and a High Pressure Sodium light bulb for flowering. I would wait a couple of weeks after transplanting to 5 gallon pots for the roots to establish themselves before switching your plants to flowering.

this is where i bought my ballasts, they will price match most items if you ask for it

Lumatek Air Cooled Ballast

here is the type of cooltube I use, you may also require a lamp cord kit to hook up the cooltube to the ballast

Ultragrow Cool Tube Reflector 6"


6 inch inline fan

Active Air Inline Fans

KJC . . :thanks: . . for your time and the shoping tips. . . . :high-five: + REPS :48: FOR YOUR TIME

How do Digital Dimable Ballasts work?
Does it use less watts (electricity) when dimed 75% and 50%?
If so 1 bulb would work as a 500 Watt and 1000 watts?
KJC do you use a 1000 watt for vegatative grow?

:thanks: . . TO ALL THE STAFF AT . . . . :420: . . . . FOR YOUR COMMITMENT TO CREATING CANNABIS AWARENESS . . . . :Namaste:

THE WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TRAY IS FROM ME SPAYING A LITTLE WATER SO IT STAY HUMID.

I REMOVED THE BLACK OR SHRIVELED LEAVES THAT YOU SEE IN THE PICS.

WHAT COULD OF CAUSED IT?

THE HUMIDITY OR HEAT?

PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT THE YELLOW LEAVES. I KNOW . . . . .WELL I KNOW, THAT I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING.

"YOU CAN NOT FILL UP A CUP THAT IS ALREADY FILLED" .


IS THE YELLOWING OF THE LEAVES A SIGN THAT THE CUTTING IS TRYING TO OR STARTING TO ROOT?

My Lumatek Digital Dimable ballasts do use less energy when they are dimmed as do some other brands. Ballasts and Light bulbs should be matched for their maximum wattage (400 watt bulb matched to 400 watt ballast, 1000 watt bulb matched to 1000 watt ballast). the same 400 watt or 1000 watt light bulb can be dimmed. I currently use my 400 watt Metal Halide light bulb and ballast for vegetative growth but have used a 1000 watt Metal Halide and ballast for vegetative growth. leaves yellowing in cuttings before they are rooted signify the leaves are using more nitrogen then is being absorbed which is normal.
