      Since I’m clearing out my ghetto clone set up today, I figured why not give people a chance to flex their cloning set ups to motivate me to get off my ass and set up a proper one…

      So, to start by setting a low bar, here’s mine:

      9w LED bulb in a Canadian tire clip on work light over a half tray (24 cell pack) in a humidity dome on a heating mat with temp controller.

      Ironically these were taken exactly 2 weeks ago on Sept 27th, started showing roots around day 11-12, which is a good sign I need to take better care of my veg plants as I usually see roots closer to day 9.

      Not as bad as you think lol. Im leaning towards clones and mothers. The size of my new area permits quite a few more ladies. At 10 bucks or more a seed I think I would be saving alot of cash!

        More then anything clones are about consistency as seeds are always variable.  Grow enough seeds and you’ll find an “elite” plant and understand why people love them so much as they just stand out as better quality and more aromatic.  Which is why we clone more then anything, to save those rare plants that are just better then most.   Although not having to buy endless packs of seeds is always nice as well

      This is a small hydroponic unit that I use in a small space between tents. I sit the cuts in water & let them do their thing. 10-14 days for roots. 
      I’ve use pop cans, and fast food cups lol

        Rooting in straight water is tried and true, tested by grandmothers growing “slips” of their plants for generations.  Nice compact little set up there and healthy looking clones.

        These plants were either males, or they are mothers. The pic is from back in January. It works pretty well when used with the peat plugs & cradles it comes with. Those pics are older so they aren’t on my phone.

      I’m getting ready to take cuttings once again for the basement, and I will post a journal from beginning to end and hopefully I can get a few tips myself or teach a few if either happens it’s worth it!

        I’ll be posting in this thread next time I take clones to show my process to keep the info in one place for easier reference while also trying to reduce the clutter on the forums as Atom pointed out below.  Which will theoretically be in the next day or two and some girls need a haircut.

      Common guys I have a clone thread established already. I know we all want to win and all, but do you want to be just posting for the sake of points, or be a part of a meaningful, well put together thread? It’s kinda disrespectful to not only the original thread creator but also to spider famer

        I looked back a couple pages and didn’t see anything about cloning, for awhile there was so many new threads being posted it was hard to keep track.  Sorry if you had already started one, if I had seen it I would have posted there instead but it was an honest mistake.  Maybe Spider Farm/moderators could make some common topics stickied to the front page of the forums to avoid repeats.  I fully agree that people posting threads just to start new ones even if they’re redundant is an issue.

        Hey if it’s a mistake that’s one thing, and thank you for understanding. Not everyone handles being called out well and it says alot about your character.

        We’re all trying to win something I can certainly understand. We are more or less the foundation of what will likely be an active forum long after this contest. Our posts will remain unless they remove it.

        I fully agree, building the community is more important which is why I try not to start redundant threads.  I don’t have illusions about winning anything as people fly past me in points, plus I can’t fit anymore lights into my room, I don’t use tents or need any of the other gear lol.  I do try to promote quality of info/posts which is why I apologize for making a redundant thread and appreciate being called out for it. So thanks again for being a stand up dude looking out for the community, cheers.

I appreciate all you guys help and if I have pissed any of you guys off I do apologize.Im stuck back 20 years ago and trying to play catch up but it’s not going to take long with help from people of your character.         TIA

      Any one else plant two clones in a cell pack to squeeze more into a tray?

      I snapped a couple pics of how to separate roots for anyone who hasn’t tried it but wants to squeeze more clones in without taking up more space, especially useful for the spring when everyone and their cousin wants clones for outdoors.

      Start by dipping/shaking the root ball in water to wash the soil away until you get something that looks like this

      Then take a stem in each hand and keep dunking them while pulling them apart with a slight pressure as the water washes off the last bit of soil holding the roots together. Leaving you with two separate root balls to replant individually, I’ll snap some pics in a week to show these two compared to the other 3 that were planted by themselves.  Assuming I remember of course…

        Hopefully in time the posts people find really useful will be pinned to the top of the forum for easy reference.  Glad you’re finding it useful
