Hope this helps someone needing to get there clone game strong. Once you pick it up cloning becomes quite easy and you will have great success as long as you keep things in check.
Any questions or tips you want to add feel free.
Cheers

A shot of the clones I took in first video. Will update over the next few days of how to care for them. Right now they are under a dome completely closed with a fair amount of water in the tray but not touching the plugs. Just to keep humidity up.

Boom! Nice.

Two questions: Do you soak the Root Riot's in any nutrients? Or just around pH 6.0 water? Same question for the foliar spray.

don’t need to soak the root riots for any period of time. I make a low strength nutrient formula, any will do. Dunk the plugs give em a squeeze under water to help the plug get nice and saturated. Ring it out so it’s not too wet and not too dry. I use tap water with 1/4 strength cal mag and 1/4 strength canna a and b. After a few day’s I will Give them that same solution with a little rhizotonic added to it. The foliar is just tap water.

That thing with the paper over the dome = brilliant.
I took two cuttings today and put the together with the other one, one day older. And, they started to slope.
I remembered your idea, and put a stretched out and dried out wet wipe over the dome, and they perked right back up within 15 minutes. Nifty little trick. Thanks @shottafire !!

Cool bruva stoked it helped them out. If I had to guess they were tops that were used as your clones correct?

Btw, perhaps I missed it in the videos, but how many hours of light do you use? I usually give them a few extra hours of sleep from the otherwise normal 18/6 schedule. So about 14-16 hours for me.

Honestly it probably wouldn’t matter. But I would definitely give them 18 and 6

I think it can make a difference, especially with the cold nights we still have here. Helping to keep the temprature leveled for sure.
