    Default Can u clone directly into soil?

    Ok if i ever want to make clones i will need to know this.
    I know my grandad used some cloning powder for non cannabis plants and put strrait into the ground and they turned out fine. but i have some dutch master clone fast rooting gel i was wondering if i could dip a cutting into this gel and put it strait to soil will it work or not

    Yes mate, that's how most growers take clones.
    Keep the soil moist and spray the clones once a day and they should begin growing roots in a couple of weeks. - If you've got a propagator, even better!

    yes as grub says, its perfectly fine to do that as thats the normal way

    although i would advise you to NOT spray the clones every day, spray every 2nd day at most, if they are perky and standing up firm then they dont need sprayed, if they are drooping then spray em ok,

    just provide an enclosed atmosphere by keeping them in a propogator or by putting cut in half plastic drinks bottles over them as a mini propogator

    If they dont have roots then do they still take water from the stem base or are they taking water in from the spray?

    through the leaves ,this is why they are kept in a high humidity enviroment[propergater].spraying helps, the stem though doesn't take up anything till roots have formed.
    if you're retired or you ain't got a job and you ain't growing and smoking weed ,i don't know what the fuck you are doing!

    dj,when you say put them into a propogator do we put them into a heated one?and cover the propagator with the lid?I usually water the mat inside the propagator to cause some moisture,is that ok? and would I still need to mist the cuttings as the propagator always causes a steamy atmosphere.Any help would be great!

    if you have a heated one and you fill with soil to clone into then they're ok as they dissipate more heat evenl through the soil,
    but i find that if your cloning into peat/coco pellets or rockwool/cuteline cubes then heated propagators dry them out too much

    as long as the clones in the propagator is somewhere warm and the lid is closed and any vents it may have are shut then this keeps in enough humidity

    i personally dont mist every day, only once every second day at most
    if the cuttings are standing up all perky and not drooping badly then they dont need misted every day
    i also keep a tiny little bit of water in the bottom of the propagator too

    I didn't spray my clones of tom plants or the kiwiskunk. Just water em a little when dry imo. Seems to be ok.

    And about dipping the end in something, well i dont have anything special just my tomatorite (sp) stuff from wilcos i just dab the end into bit of that then plant in soil.
    Everything that i say is a work of fiction i.e made up, this forum is full of fiction i.e made up stories. All pics are found on the internet to show a visual identification to go with our stories we write for fun.

    your dipping a cut clone into your Tomorite fertilizer before planting the cutting?

    thats probably a bad idea, its a concentrated fertilizer not a rooting hormone
    but if you have still managed to root cuttings by doing that then fair enough
    i wouldnt recommend it though

    My reasons are it gives it the nutes it needs directly where it was cut to help promote recovery and growth. Well thats my theory anyhow lol.

    It works so im happy enough. If it failed then i wouldnt do it.

    yea works well mate, i always use cheap powder, in fact i had some in the cupboard for about 10 years and it still worked well

    you can clone in water or soil if that helps anyone
