    what strength is the solutionn in the reservoir? What stage of nutrients? Basically..did you use a cloning solution and 1/4 to 1/3 strength flowering nutes like you should have or did you use somethuing else?

    i am not sure Racefan but i followed the instructions that came with the bucket. they sent me small bags of nutes and instructed me to use 1/4 of each bag in the reservoir. also i use the cloning solution they gave me to dip my stems in. heres a pic. and is it ok to take cuttings from the very tip top of the plant?

    i cant get this thing to work the only thing i can think of is that the water is to hot. i wish one of the experts out there would tell me how to make this work and if i can take clones from the top branches cuz i have taken about 40 so far and every one of them died

    It could possibly be your res water temp. Do you know what temperature its averaging at now?
    They like cool nutes.
    Think of it this way. Every kind of plant that comes from the ground gets its water and nutes from below the surface. Go outside, dig a 1ft deep hole and see how cool it is underground and you'll see what I mean. Lights directly over your res, especially a white bucket, will heat up the contents from the lights.
    Try a cheap chiller like the one in my sig or try swapping out frozen bottles of water in your bucket to keep the water at a nice very cool level.

    I keep my res water for my clones in the low 70's I aim for 72. I use clonex solution and keep my PH at around 5.8. I am close to a 100% success rate.... You have to remember that some strains are much harder then others to clones...
    Go back and look at some of our threads on cloning. Can you get a pic of the underside of the cuttings? lets have a look at the bottom of the stem.

    branches towards the bottom of the plant root better than ones towards the top.They are closer to the roots and hold more nutes that are being sucked up
