Your problem is too much moisture not enough air and using a heat may under the cloner will cook them and create pathogens, you want a consistent temp and atmosphere during cloning.

A simple, guaranteed low maintenance way to clone .

I use Rock wool cubes, pucks are the same deal, prepare them with a soak don't squeeze them out it messes with the fiber and drainage and will not hurt a thing being fully water-laden going in
I don't use the hole in the cube I make my own off center and nearer an edge for 2 reasons, its a better fit on the clone to make my own hole, and it's closer to air being nearer the edge.

My cloner trays have 3 holes drilled into the bottom of the tray, the cloners fit inside the lip of a bigger tray which is filled with water to about an inch below the clone tray, the heat mat is put under the large water tray, mine is set to 27c . The clones are taken during the night cycle and placed into cubes and into the cloner when the lights go on they will be standing like they still on mum, the vents are wide open from the get-go so you have airflow with no stagnant wet air suffocating the clones it will be over 90% humidity inside the dome with the vents wide open, it is drawing humidity from the water in the tray below. When you want to lower the humidity inside the clone box just pop anything small under the dome lid that will knock about 10% down, you can regulate by how much open the side is. I also have the room the clone unit sits in heated to keep inside the dome at 24-25c . it will creep over that during the heat of the day but it doesnt run the risk of cooking them with heat mat and stale air, I use Inkbird controllers on both the heat mat for the water and on the heater for room temp.

Good luck this will not fail.

These clones are next day after cutting notice vents wide open, it will be 100% strike rate, and they were taken from mothers 7 days into flower because of an accident, they will still all strike, Im finding you basically do nothing they don't even need water for a week or so because of the high humidity airflow.

If it keeps failing, try another way.

There are so many ways to clone, it would make your head spin. Find one that works for you and don't let it go.

- I use Jiffy pellets. I hydrate them cut a branch, remove all bottom leaves, dip in rooting gel/powder, then just stick the stalk in the pellet until it hits the bottom. I get 99%. But I fail with everything else I've tried.

- Directly in soil

- Water cloning (change the water every couple days)

A good friend swears by the perlite method.
Perlite & water in a bin. You can probably scale that down to a small setup.

There's always a formal cloner. DIY or store bought.

Can you offer any opinions as to what the heck I'm doing wrong based on the photos and/or my description of my process?
Too much moisture , heat , not enough air exchange and too many leaves...
Domes IMO are useful only if you are ina very dry environment, you can totally ditch em if you are in the upper 60s RH...
Also the heat mat is for very cold rooms.....
Good luck.....just keep it going until you will get the touch and then you will b king....trial error.....SUCCESS!

Hormex rooting powder > all. Trial and error. Take more cuttings than you need and use the ones that root. And If you use the dome intially, only open it a couple times a day.

Dome should be removed once a day and sprayed with fresh water.

Leaves need humidity to stop transpiration but it’s the last thing root formation needs.
The dome should be removed permanently after 2 days and you avoid most of those problems. Your clones are too close together and have too much foliage on them and too much moisture. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Take a few clones and try Spacing them out further. Try different things on your own. Do you have some healthy clones? And if so why are they healthy ? What is different about them ? Are they taller then the rotting 1s ? spacing ? Are the unhealthy clones buried in the middle with even less light hitting them and less air flow? Your plants are rotting. Depending on the temperature ,, When you take the clones get affect whether or not you even need to put them in a humidity dome. For example if you take clones when it's hot out or set them in a hot environment they can't uptake the water to keep from falling over that's why you need a humidity done. But if you do it when it's colder more than likely you can put them into cubes with no dome. Find somebody who knows what they're doing that can help you personally. Quitting is not the answer good luck
