I’m planning to put cuttings in water on 12/12, to sex my plants.

Ive read a few threads saying it works, but others saying it doesn’t.

Anyone tried it?

Thanks

I read a thread that said they won’t go into flower without roots. But a few 10-15 year old threads on here say it works.

Hope it does. Will save a lot of time.

Got 2 distinct phenos from a pack of archive showboat. Hoping one turns out good.

Finally got round to giving this a go. I’ve just not had time.

When taking cuttings I noticed one was female. Not sure about the other. Thought male at first now I’m not too sure. Hopefully cuttings work and reveal all

Yes and it works.
Found that out back in early 80's when i went "balls to the wall attitude".
I had ALOT of bushy plants that i needed to clean up for Flower.
I clearly remember looking at all these plants and calculating the work load.

While lollypopping, i collected HUNDREDS of great cuttings and threw them in a bucket full of water.
in between life, It took me about a week to get most of those cuttings for clone mode.
Many of the cuts ( i stopped after processing 600 cuts ) remained in the flower room in the same bucket.

When I went to do a little clean up of the flower room, The cuts not only had roots ; were flowering also.

30 years later I still flower cuts .

the question here is WHY WOULDNT IT WORK?

I read a few threads saying plants would not go in to flower without forming roots first.
And I can tell you thats only one side to the coin.
how many times has granny cut STEMS roses from her garden and put them in a vase on the table?

and boom, FLOWER.


not all types of plants/veggies need roots to flower/fruit.

i challage you to put a few cuts in a solo cup in your flower room.
a drop of micro nutes in the water and leave them alone.

your gonna think you discovered america 2 weeks later.

I never said they did?

I answered your question as to why I asked the question, even though it was stated earlier in the thread.
