    Default Clones and lighting.

    Evening people. I'm taking some clones tomorrow at some point. Will the be ok under a couple of normal household bulbs or will I need something bigger?
    Many thanks

    That clonex mist seems to be getting good reports too
    for cuttings.Might be worth a try.

    So we are 12 days since the clones were taken. Still no roots. Everything is still looking good. No wilting or any other negative signs. Fingers crossed

    I use to struggle with roots personally with a terrible success ratio. I won't got all organic on ya but one massive difference I found was adding 1 red coulor bulb amongst the 3 other blue in the t5 and I've had 100% everytime.

    I can't resist, I use aloe leaf for my clonex. teaspoon kelp in the ez cloner, shilajit(fulvic acid) 1/8 teaspoon freeze dried aloe Vera water powder and I'm now 100% everytime

    Also clonex mist is easily made I can let you know the main ingredients are kelp,amino acids(lol),mineral salts(lol'er) and benzoisothiazolin all of which are very minimal amounts well let's just say kelp is the highest at 0.12%
    Blessings and gratitude

    A root all mine in water . No different than my mother did with all her house and garden plants she took cutting's off . The only difference is a root them in a bubbling box . I use a really useful box make my own lid cut holes in it to suit the net pots take a cut 6inches long remove everything other than the very top . Place in net pot fill with clay pebbles make sure the bottom of the cut is in the water and leave to bubble and root under 200w cfl . 100% success rate . Captain beefheart also has a very simple method in which he gets 100% success and uses plastic sandwich bags

    Interesting with the red light...I always use an organic rooting nute, the bio bizz root stim once I see showing roots. I have had good results from willow Tree cuttings soaked in boiling water for 24 hours and using that as a spray and to soak my cubes in before transplant.

    It's amazing that only yesterday there was one root which hadn't even come through the meshing what's hold the plug together. 20 or so hours later and boom. Explosion!
