I see too many growers using scrogs with no end game. Yours will actually produce weight.
I think most people don't understand the whole concept. I didn't, but through trial and error, I learned.I see too many growers using scrogs with no end game. Yours will actually produce weight.
Ok. The net pots serve to hold the collars in the right position. The reason is, the clones need to be just touching the water. I check the water daily and change it when the ph is not stable and starts going down. The tops of the plants may show some distress as roots form. That’s ok so long as the plants stay hydrated.Thanks very curios about cloning myself in dwc as I mainly grow dwc. No luck In any form of soil here Its fine as long as I can do hydro right.
But yeah, I like how you got pictures with your coming part. I’ve tried once, just a whole lot of tops wrapped in a neoprene collar and just fooating on the surface. With some air stones. Didn’t take care of them as I was new and figured it wasn’t going to work. But when I checked on them two weeks later and looked at the dead plants I noticed little bulbs on the stems of What I thinks were the beginnings white nubby roots. So it got me thinking I was in the right direction , just not the right track.
For making clones. Your thoughts?
The stems are just barely in the water. It doesn’t seem to matter how much. The nodes above will produce roots. I strive for 5.8 ph. The water is ph’d but only rapid start is necessary, or another root booster. I also use h202 and/or z7 enzymes.Hmm so about how much of the stem Should be in water? Like inches or.
I get the collars needing to be in inserts now. Don’t want to drown the plant.
I got some rooting gel.
What ec and ph range do you usually keep them in?
would like to try cloning again. But I’m not 100% sure I’m going to do it right.
But seeing dwc cloning.
Such as yours.
That I can try.
Sorry this took awhile to see for answering. Been a tough few days here. But back on now.I’ve got some rooting gel. So just dip the stem in to the gel. And place the tip of the stem in plain ph water, and the roots will form above this water line?
No nutes in the solution just ph? Sorry with the questions, just trying to clear up some grey areas on my end as your cloning worked.
I want to be sure I’m getting the whole picture before I cut something and place it in the wrong kind of water.
I have read some plants are very good rooters in their genes. Some not so much.Sorry this took awhile to see for answering. Been a tough few days here. But back on now.
You are really correct in your assessment, in that all you have to do is make sure the water is PH'd to below 6 (5.8 is good) and that the plant has nodes exposed to the spray. The two large airstones make the water mist below the cover.
It may take awhile. I've been trying to root Peppermint Kush clones for two weeks, but they are still alive and the water is good, so just waiting. In a day or two I'll see white roots. I just know it. LOL.
Patience is sometimes necessary. I have rooted plants in five days before, but it really depends on the strain how long it takes. My opinion.
