DAY 8 & 9
The next step is to spray the clones with water before moving the clones under the light.
We want the moisture to escape now which will dry out the Jiffy 7 pellets. The drying of the pellets will force the small bits of root to grow quickly in search of moisture.
This method is what I call “Double Dipping the Clones”. I do this because some strains root better in gel, while others root better with rooting powder. This way each clone will always root no matter what. Any brand rooting powder and gel will work for cloning.
Leave the light on 18 hrs per day for cloning. Try to give the clones as much light as possible. More light makes clones root faster.

Once all the clones are inserted in the pellets I add a teaspoon of water to the base of each stem to activate the rooting gel and powder.
Share my pics and videos with all your friends. My book “Marijuana Mass Production Made Easy” shows you how to grow 2 lbs or more per 1000w light and includes instructions on how to grow 12 lbs every 3 weeks in 1000 sq ft room.
Mr Green has been growing marijuana on a commercial scale since 1990 and has made thousands of clones. Learn the exact technique he uses to get clones consistently rooted fast, in 7-10 days!
Takeaway: Successfully cloning a mother plant is a proud moment for any horticulturist, no matter how often it happens. Although cloning is getting easier and easier to do, it can still be a delicate procedure. Read on to discover how to get the job done.
Growers who use an aeroponic cloner will not need to condition the medium for cloning. Once the clone is taken and the rooting gel has been applied, the clone can be placed in the machine.
Ideally, a donor plant is in the vegetative stage of growth. Donor plants reverted from the flowering state are acceptable and, in some cases, actually preferred.
The biggest problem with clone machines is keeping the unit sterilized between each use. One solution is running the machine with a concentrated hydrogen peroxide solution between clone cycles.
Many growers use straight water in the clone machine, although I always prefer mixing a little vitamin B-1 and some rooting solution.
The medium used for cloning should be kept moist but not soaked. A well-aerated medium for cloning can make or break it once the initial rooting begins.
After seven to 10 days, clones usually begin to show roots. Some plant varieties take longer and some don’t take as long. Once clones are rooted and acclimated to the ambient humidity and temperature, they can be treated as vegetative plants.
The biggest advantage of this process is that any pathogens, diseases or pests infecting the donor plant will not be transferred to clones.
A propagation dome is a great way for growers to keep a microclimate around clones and maintain a high level of humidity and a consistent temperature.
For an indoor gardener to have a perpetually successful garden, they must first become successful at cloning. The ability to successfully clone a plant enables a grower to continue using a variety of plant that, for one…
