    Default A simple guide to taking and making clones/cuttings

    firstly choose the growing shoots from the plant which you'll take the clones/cuttings from like so ~

    select the areas from the plant

    select the cuttings



    then prepare the clone/cutting
    cut the stem @45 degrees and remove the lower leaves, i personally would only remove the lowest set of leaves leaving the rest on the clone ~
    prepare cutting


    remove lower leaves


    cut stem @45 degrees, i'd advise using a clean razor blade



    pour some rooting gel into a small container, this saves the whole gel from contamination, next take the cutting and dip the stem in the rooting gel or powder, id recommend using a rooting gel (especially Clonex) as this covers the stem better and seems to produce a better rooting (strike) rate for clones/cuttings ~

    dip clone into gel/powder




    then place your clone/cutting into your desired rooting medium, either a light soil/perlite mix or Rockwool cubes or peat or coco coir pellets ~


    peat pellets

    coco coir pellets



    then place your cuttings into a propagtor, give them a spray mist with plain pH balanced water and put under 24 hour light ~
    here's my two new NYC Diesel clones sitting in their propagator



    some people cut the fan leaves in half as they say this helps the cutting transpire (lose) less water, but in my opinion, the little plant needs all the energy it can in getting its new roots growing so i personally leave them intact
    i also leave a very small amount of water in the bottom of the propagator and i also dont mist them much at all, only 2-3 times over the next 5-7 days, i believe this spoils the plant and it needs to get its own roots down if it wants water

    in 5-10 days you should see new roots growing out of the medium, it is now time to repot and you can now vegetate the plants for a few weeks to grow them up before flowering or put them straight into flowering as soon as they have rooted, the choice is yours!

    hope this guide is of some help

    cheers

    You can veg the plants as long as you want mate, 1 week, 1 month or even 1 year. You can even go straight to 12/12 as soon as the seedlings emerge from the soil... it is all down to preference and how big you want the plants to eventually become.

    there's no set limit on veg state, its entierly up to the grower and what parametres he/she is growing with/in
    if you have limited space/height then as soon as your clones have rooted then you would want to put them into flower

    these clones went through an 8 hour/400 mile journey to get to me and survived the trip in a little plastic tupperware box lined with damp kitchen roll!

    I rooted my cutting in 100% perlite and she rooted quite well. The only problem I had was getting the roots out of the perlite intaced. The first time I ripped em of completely, the socond time I half ripped them off, so I just wacked her in a light free draining soil and off she has gone. next time im gunna go with the peat pellets as I have a few in the grow box equipment of destinie.

    Hey dj!!!
    Very nice thread!!I wanted to ask you how many times you open the propagator to get air the first weeks?
    2.Do you keep them close to lights from the start?
    3.What temp you have in the propagator?
    4.How much water you spray?Can you say a quantity like 50ml per clone??
    5.In case yellow leaf-tips are showing during the first two weeks or browning leafs do you trim those parts away so as not to spread or you let them be?

    Thanks in advance m8!!

    1} i might open the lid every other day but thats it
    2} no clones dont need a lot of light to root
    3} approx 75 degrees
    4} i dont mate, i spray a bit of mist into the propogator lid maybe every other day but thats it,
    i leave a little water in the bottom too, just to keep humidity levels up, but as long as there's condensation inside the prop lid and the clones are standing up perky, then there's no need to spray them IMO/experience

    peace
    if the strain is stable then it'll be ok, but obviously stress can cause a plant to hermie, just be careful with them is all i'll say

    yes you can take clones of it now
    its impossible to identify individual varieties of cannabis im afraid, all i can say is that it looks like a Sativa/Indicas cross and its more Indica than Sativa
