10 Year Grower Still Can't Clone :(

OP if you can find it in China buy some Wilson's rooting Gel. It has a fungicide in it that prevents fusarium and damp off disease. Also lower your temp in the dome, and pre boil the water used for hydrating the rooting cubes. You should also clean the scissors you take the cuttings with in alcohol. Additionally you could also prebake wet peat pucks at 250 for an hour to sterilize them. I also mix a bit of wilsons gel into the boiled water for hydrating the cubes with as well.
its hard to buy that kind of thing without a record of it, maybe i'm being overly paranoid but . . . .
 
After thinking about the temps and using the dome...the warm soil gives off a lot of water vapor, while the interior of the dome is cooler than the ground. With the dome in place, you will get a LOT of condensation running off of the dome, plus it will probably be 100% relative humidity inside the dome, which is way to wet for my preferences. I'm not familiar with using one of these systems for rooting, like @JWM2 says, I usually just put a cutting into a small water glass with an inch of water in it. My thoughts are that the temps are a bit too high, which makes everything steamy, like a jungle. Mold/mildew love steamy atmospheres. If you lower the Rh a little, then the fungus, etc won't be able to take hold as easy.
i think your right, but it's too cold in the room . . . it's been getting warmer though not ideal for cloning yet. F#&$ how do i warm up these clones without having to heat the whole room.
 
that looks cool, i've acktuallly tried that, fuck i've tried all the techniques but i often fail, just out of curiosity what's your rh and room temp?
what ever the outside temp is,i do all of them right beside that old tool box in a utility room,same with my tent,i run forced wind on them,dont have ac or heat,just air,hottest the tent got in middle of summer was 87 in flower no problems,just forced wind threw intake and exhaust combos,ive found that with the strains ive grown that above 90 the plant shutdown.
the forced wind i came up with from having to dodge contractors that the kids hire to do shit,got so damn tired of trying to hide the shit,the last place they would think of looking is were it is hot as hell and the clutter in my utility room from tools weed whackers chainsaws and such keep um away,to much work involved in that room for anyone to just come by and say high,hahahah actual work scare shit out of folk lmao,but ya 2 years ago i was doing a outdoor run under cover,hurricane on the way,so i put up a make shift camo net over them and just the drop in temp from being in soaring heat of the sun they started kicking ass,even let my male stay with them threw the hurricane,he was a horny boy and pollenated all 3 of the girls,that bad boy hahahah,the canopy and plants took 65 mph winds and rain and finished out giving me some fine seeds,bluedream and acupoco gold,damn fine herb,mix turned out well for this old hillbilly lmao

i feel like the cold temps stop the clones from rooting it's easier for me to clone in the warmer temps

ive never had any luck using them domes,i figure the high ass dollar clone machines cost so much what the hell i make one,works very well,ive done just about every veggie and all my girls,start a new strain and take cuts,by the time they root, veg,flower,ive done 2 difrent sets of cuts,so if i like the smoke,i already have the first set cuts in flower and second set cuts in veg,so if i like it,keep up with the cuts and roll like a frieght train
 
View attachment 860061 Clone in aero ponics or hydroponics anything else is kinda like Stone Age cloning imo. I use this it works great never a problem. Just 45 degree cut dip in ez clone gel plop em in simple. Water buy or use reverse osmosis add ez clone clone x solution to resavor nice and smooth transition like they’ve never been cut View attachment 860059 View attachment 860060
i was looking at this, seems like an easy enough build, but i saw lots of mixed reviews, are you running this? does temp and rh play a role when using this rig? and maybe you didn't read my above post about not being willing to buy anything that what i got right now, which are in the pics.
 
I saw a guy make a cloner from an aquarium pump and nerf darts. It is in another forum but if you can search around...

If not let us know and I will see if i can paraphrase it so it makes sense.
i've built one before with a 18L hempy bucket. some strains cloned better than others, some strains would not clone. i typically don't run dwc cloning system in the winter, too hard to keep warm. room temps can drop to 5 celsius.

i'm the same way, but getting good genetics to my neck of the woods is a hassel, i had 3 but one got sick due to whitefly, now i'm left with diesel and true og
