NYGC Clone: New Years Clone run

Still not sure which one to highlight.  The cuttings will be from one or all of these plants in veg. Venom OG from Humbolt Seed Co.  And the two Purple City collaborations: Lemon Sherbet with Grandflora and Capstone with Capulator.  I’m in week 8 of flower in my current from with these genetics and each is looking good.  Prior to having really decide which to run in the NYGC I should have some cured flower for each one.  Here’s the current veg about 5 days ago.  I’m just about to transplant them out of the 1 gals

Picked up some supplies at the local hydro shop:

10x20 tray - just to be sure I have a clean one.

One scalpel and a bag of rapid rooters

i have the other supplies I’ll be using On new years: humidity dome, rapid rooter tray, clonex, 99% iso, Distilled water, heating mat, and temp controller. This picture was right before I moved them to the flower tent

Ok, I’m ready.  Nursery and veg tent cleaned and sterilized.  I fired up the Platinum P4 light and found its got a veg light out.  All four Crees lit.  Might actually be beneficial for the Clones.  It’s supposed to have a 5 year warranty and it’s just over 3 years old.  We’ll see how they handle the warranty claim.

How to spend a $100 amazon gift card?

Buy an auto watering system upgrade.

Thank you Dr. Coco for the detailed guide.  

I had already purchased the res and have some black poly laying around.  I built my auto-drain saucers last time around and installed a drain in the grow tent.  Looking forward to using the hydro halos this time around.  I’ve played with almost every drip emitter and attachment out there over the years and I really like the look of the 1/2” feeder lines to each plant.  I run perpetual and I will be technically using these for the girls I’m moving to flower tomorrow (after I take my NYGC cuts).  I would typically give them 7-10 days to recover, but I will just flip them this time...to save some time and they are very healthy.

I should have the system running well for when the NYGC clones get moved into flower.  I do have to figure out a way to drop the res lower, or I will have to put in a siphon break.

Also, I will be using a maxi jet as my stirring pump which is a bit of overkill, but I’ve got 3 of them laying around from my reefing days, and save me from buying another pump.

Clones taken this morning:

I took cuts of each strain: Capstone, Venom OG, Lemon Sherbet.  I have each of these curing from my last grow and they’re about a week or two away from me actually being able to sample.  I will plan to carry each strain through to rooted clone and early veg - in small grow bags.  When it’s time to transplant to 1 gal I will decide what is going to continue.

I had a few plants of each to select my cuts.  A few of the plants were going to be culled so I chopped them up good and got some great cuts.

Cannabis Grow DB86E867 A8FA 487F B41D 3146132C1E28

Everything sterilized before I started.  Rapid rooters were soaked overnight using a weak early veg solution of New Millenium. pH 6.0. EC .0.7 Temp 68F.

the cuttings were soaked in room temp distilled water while I worked.  They were trimmed and placed in clonex gel.  After a few minutes in clonex they were transferred to the rapid rooters.  I sprayed with distilled water as I finished up each strain.

Once all the cuts were taken I watered each site with about 5-7ml solution of the same concentration and parameters I used for the RR soak.

Everything misted with distilled water and heating mats were placed under the trays.  I placed the domes on with the vents closed.  Temp controller reading from one of the vents and set to 76F.  They’re under about 90w 3000k and one veg puck (from my slightly crippled fixture).

Day 4 - vents open today.  Sprayed distilled water.  Rapid rooters were starting to dry.  I put a few cups of weak early veg solution in the tray and let them wick up the solution, dumped out excess.

Vents open again today.  Will close them again tomorrow.  Sprayed once with distilled, evening spray was a very light foliar feed of cal mag + canna rhizo .  I find that just a bit of foliar feeding on day 5ish helps keep the leaves green.

Day 6 - I had to moisten the plugs again today with a light feed.  Temp in the dome reads 77 f.  I set a temp probe right on the bottom of the tray just to see how hot it gets.  I ended up relocating the plugs to another tray because the one I used had been cut down for a smaller dome and taped back together.  The plugs did feel cool to the touch so I don’t think it was the temp.  Maybe the other tray prevented a good seal?  We’ll see, they’re in a new tray now and the dome is definitely snug now.  Vents were closed again today to keep the humidity up.

First sign of roots today.  Plugs are good and moist and saw two little root tips in the Venom OG section.  I attempted the photo, but the rapid rooter tray is too flimsy to hold its shape when holding with one hand.  I would have gladly paid a few Buck more for something more rigid.  Venom OG is a very quick growing cultivar...it’s always first and grows very quickly in veg.  Also, puts off quite an odor even as a clone.  Sprayed 2x today with spring water.  Ran out of distilled and used bottled water instead.

Yesterday I had to remove all of the plugs to relocate them to a new tray.  I use curved-blade trim scissors (slightly open)to gently remove the rapid rooters from the tray.  I do use them when it’s time to remove the plugs for transplant as well.

Day 8 already.  Sprayed once with plain water. Seeing a little bit of yellowing on one or two of the Lemon Sherbet cuts.

Ok, we have roots on most of the cuts now.  Today was the first day I saw roots on the capstone and LS...just a few poking out.

Did the minimum today.  Opened the dome, sprayed the clones and opened the vents back up...think I meant to do that yesterday.
