Cloning 🌱

Decided to document my second attempt at cloning!

I made a diluted solution of honey and tap water as a rooting horomone. 

I boiled my water for a 30 minutes before mixing the honey. The honey brand I chose to use was Pure Michigan Honey. 

I took cuttings and snipped unnecessary leaves and at the base of the stem, cut at a 45 degree angle with a sterile razor.

Dipped stems into solution for about two minutes at a time, then stuck them directly into my solo cups full of soil.

This them....was EXTREMELY sad. I did not have a humidity dome the first 3 days. They wilted badly and my tent humidity was 55% at 79°F. So they were barely hanging on. 

 

Update in next post!

On the 4th day I needed to get my clones some humidity! So I created a yanky device, that Im currently still using (ITS AWESOME). 

An Amazon box 📦 some plastic wrappings from clothing bought online, a towel, and a plastic food tray lid. Covered the box in plastic...wet the towel and seated it at the bottom of box....put clones inside...misted lid and covered them. 3 days later started to see LIFE! Humidity without misting stays at about 70%.

I think my clones are rooted, so Im deciding to remove the home made dome. Thats the only disadvantage I have when planting directly into soil and solo cups, can't see roots. Ima try the clear solo cups next time.

Clones have been removed from dome and are doing really good! 

At this point I get all "duhhhhh 🥴" because I manage to forget how to care for them when they start rooting. Im organic now....so I gotta mix my soil soon......right now theyre in a regular pot of soil....that should last me 1 month after rooting 🤞

I am very impressed with my cloning success these last two runs.....had tremendous help from a couple growmies and I cant wait to clone again once these are done.

I have a total of 9 clones so far. Intially it was 7, but I cloned my platinum cookie and red Mandarin after I topped. Platinum cookie is a bag seed so Idk of its male or female....lol hopefully I'm not cloning males 😅

Didn't transplant yet, clones are showing signs of heat stress but theyre ok. Didnt realize my heater wasn't being controlled in the cloning tent. It was 91 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Overall, still growing and thriving.

Never realized how demanding clones are until my second run with them 🥴

Deciding to put 3 clones outside to see how they do. Transplanted the 3 into 3 gallon pots. Need to transplant the rest soon before root bound. 😄

Pics soon!
