LeafLady's Guide to Cloning


New Member
Working at one of California's busiest Medical Cannabis dispensaries means a lot of clone cutting and rooting! Here is what an average day on the clone table looks like.



I will show you preparation techniques first.
Things you will need:

  • Sharp, clean and grease-free razor blade
    1 inch rockwool cubes
    Propagation tray w/humidity dome and 2nd net tray
    PPM / pH reader
    pH UP and pH DOWN
    R.O. water
    Clonex rooting hormone
    Roots Excelurator


  1. Measure 1 gal. of R.O. water
    (optional) 3 ml. Roots Excelurator
    1/4 Scoop Great White
    pH the mixed solution to exactly 5.5. This step is very crucial!
    (PPM's should be no more than 100.)

I like to separate the 1 inch rockwool pieces to ensure no root-bonding. (Optional)
After everything is mixed up and pH'd, soak the cubes well.

What we use for the cuttings:

There is the first major step. I'll post more if anyone is interested!

Well I am definitely interested. I still don't have a ph meter but I have tried cloning before. I am 2-1, has them in flowering now.

Thank you! =)

just curious, when you did yout journal for the dispensary grow.

you mentioned using house and gardens aqua flake A and B, how and when would you add those to the mix?

I've already ordered these ingredients once i saw that journal, now im just looking for the tutorial lol.

how long did it take for you to experience roots like this?:
Check out these roots! The secret is: House and Garden's A&B + Roots Exelurator + Great White=


could you pleasebreak it down into more detail if at all possible? or perhaps a run through of how they got from the cutting tray you just explained to this over grown with rooots?

thank you!!
