    Default Bud Lightyear's Guide To Cuttings

    Right the guys and gals, thought I would do a pictorial guide for the successful way to take cuttings. This really is a simple process that anyone can do. Preferably you want a healthy mother that has been fed and is well hydrated. You can strike your cuttings into different mediums, jiffy's, coco, rock wool, root riot's etc. For this guide I'm going to be using rock wool cubes, they are cheap easy to work with and I've managed to get 100% strike success's rate.

    A few things you will need



    Place you cubes into a bowl and run under the tap





    Use a cocktail stick to enlarge the hole in the cube



    Nice healthy mother plant



    Make cut just below node







    Trim the node



    Trim the stem just bellow where the node was



    I like to trim the remaining leaves, helps the cutting retain moisture



    Dip the wound in clonex or rooting powder





    Insert the stem into the cube around half way





    Firm the rock wool round the base of the stem





    When your done give them a spray, tap water is fine



    Spray the bottom of your prop, I place some wood strips on the bottom, lets any excess water drain away





    Spray inside the prop lid



    Place the lid on, make sure vents are closed



    Place CFL type light above prop



    The light I use is a 45w aquarium light and ballast, it works really well for me with this prop. If you have a heated prop, you DON'T need it switched on in the summer months. Spray the inside of the prop lid twice daily for a week or so and make sure the cubes have not dried out, I lift the tray and gauge the weight, if they are dry I just submerse the whole tray in the sink filled with water then back into the prop.

    Thanks for looking folks, we will come back in around 10 days and see how these have done

    Regards BL

    Ok folks update, 10 days since i took the cuttings, all have rooted........













    Regards BL

    10 cuttings off one plant, only need 8 for my Christmas run...You could go 12/12 once they have rooted the cubes out. I like a 4 or 5 week veg though.
    Look out for my new diary coming soon. Going for 50oz from 8 of those babies

    Its UK/Exodus cheese mate. The only strain I can get a full nights sleep on, I can't smoke it during the day though it just turns me into a dribbling mess

    Great post mate! well done
    Can you take a cutting and put it straight into soil/rock-wool without using the rooting hormone? or is that no doable?

    Cheers

    You don't need any rooting hormone mate...If you look at the stuff I've used its 2 years out of date lol....I've only included it in the guide coz folks seem to like using it. Cannabis will root very easily without it.

    nice one bud mate, i use a very similar method to your but i,m a lazy fucka so i just cut them diagonaly then straight into cubes, i find a nice thin stem roots quicker too, i know this method will be 99% though, less leaf to draw less light therefore forcing root quicker to feed the plant, nice one

    Perfect timing with this guide pal, as I'm looking at taking cuttings from my silver cheese and silver haze strains and just decided to look up how to do it and this guide has really helped me understand how to take a cutting, the pics help a lot and it's better then the last guide on here on how to do it.. cheers

    Best to get some root growth first mate, shouldnt be more than 2 weeks before you can do other things with them.
