    Default Clones from root rot plants

    I have had a disastrous start to my transition from coco to RDWC.

    First attempt root rot in all 10 plants at 6 weeks old from seed, binned and started again. Second attempt root rot in all 10 plants at 6 weeks old from seed.

    I in the last few days changed from a sterile unit to using Hydroguard and it seems to have helped, but they are only about 8" tall and the roots arnt great even with the new white root growth after the Hydroguard. I have decided once again going to bin them tomorrow.

    These were all grown from expensive seeds so I was wondering if I could get a head start and save some money by taking some cuts.

    My question is has anyone ever taken cuts from root rot plants and did it pass on to the clones. Basically is root rot systemic?

    Many thanks

    As far as Im aware, root rot comes from lack of oxygen (overwatering) or Pythium (bacteria) dont think its a possible to inherit from a plant

    I will take a few cuttings to try as an experiment. I just don't want it to happen again. Luckily I know where I went wrong. This RDWC is a big learning curve.

    I am just worried the bacteria will spread from the roots up into the stem and into the plant itself.

    plants/clones won't pass on root rot, that's more the method used than plants,
    bud rot is spores that can spread, root rot isn't the same problem

    So do you think I can take clones from the plants I have infected with root rot?

    any clone grows new fresh roots that won't be affected, as long as the root rot problem has been fixed they'll be fine mate,
    no point planting more if the problems isn't fixed

    water temp/oxygen/light leaks all play a part of the dreaded root rot
