@Beachwalker This is the only cutting from my Magnificent Seven, now Fantastic Five with Thrips. It took an extremely long time to root, even longer than the majority of my Bubble Gum Cuttings. I believe there are a couple of factors. The first being the temperature drop, it has been pretty dramatic and then there is the location on the plant that the cuttings came from. Now, having just said that I shall contradict myself and say this. This clone in the photo is from the top of a Biker Kush plant and took around 21 days or so to show roots through the rockwool cube but other cuttings taken from lower down the plant, the very bottom branches, have still not rooted and they never will as I dumped them today. I have rooted cuttings taken from the tops of plants, I did it at this time, or around, last year with the 5 Bubble Gum that I've been growing now for just over a year so I know even though only one of these Biker Kush has rooted that the tops of plants can be rooted successfully, takes a little longer than cuttings from elsewhere, I have found but it can be done. And here it is, along with some Bubble Gum Clones taken and re-potted into 1/4 litre pots in a soil mix ( light mix) with additional couple of hand fulls of worm castings. The Biker Kush Clone is first.

They look really healthy, do you just dip them in a rooting gel and pop them straight into that soil mix?
The tricky part is keeping them moist. There's no forgiveness with that rockwool, the cuttings dry out and die if that cube isn't kept wet. I guess the soil mix will hold moisture better.
Very nice
For the most part all my cuttings come from the tops of plants; I use a domed tray and a heating mat with a controller set to 78°f

They get the Serafina double-dip, which means first dipped in clonex gel then in a rooting powder and then they currently go into two parts perlite to one part vermiculite

They sit in about a half an inch of 350 PPM of 20-20-20 plant food, the medium is self-watering

I've use Root Riots in the past and also a bubble cloner, but for some reason I ran into issues with both of the above methods which is why I tried my seed starting mix to root clones and it's working great right now 🤞

Regarding thrips I had great results with this product, hope this helps

How's this for a healthy-looking rooted cutting!!! LOL I'm loving my seed-starting mix for cloning

I'm having near hundred percent results even the ones I scorched last week when I was off my feet for a couple days (in tray on right) all rooted which I find kind of surprising! 😯🌱🌱🌱
Gee they are a lovely lush green color beachwalker,thats exactly how i want my plants to look like instead of dull green..i need some better nutes lol at the right ratio..

I've just started using nutrients in my cloning tray, before it was just 100ppm tap water but my medium is basically Hydroponic so I figured as soon as they start to root they might as well start to green up and grow too?!

It sure is working..got me looking at 20/20/20 dry ferts lol..
I use it exclusively in veg for explosive Leaf growth, I use this brand because it's less than half of the price of Jack's 20-20-20 which is a comparative products, but both require Cal Mag supplementation

Awesome..thanks mate.i can get this on amazon au.im keen to try this in future grows.what % of dry ferts would i b looking for to use all the way through flower 5/10/20 as an example..i should b able to find something close in australia...

Appreciate your info to bro..

Not exactly sure what you're asking but I can tell you that I grew this plant exclusively on that 20-20-20 and GH Calimagic, veg through bloom; I feed around 700-800ppm, and occasionally up to 1000ppm for a legitimate heavy feeder which are few and far between Imo, hope that helps

Those tops of plants, are those plants clones or from seed? I find cuttings from clones root quicker than cuttings from plants from seeds, indeed thats what my findings are here. All those bubble gum clones, 39 of them now, are from the plants/clones that are in the flower room now. My next grow is from my last. But I cannot claim the same success with the Biker Kush, even though the process was exactly the same for all the cuttings I took. I believe the clones have a "memory" of sorts, whereas cuttings from plants grown from seed haven't been through that sama process that a clone has. Next time I am taking cuttings I shall fill up a dozen pots with some soil mix, I have a little propagation tray with a lid I can use and I will see how that works out. I paid nearly £50 for that Pyrethrum and I still have plenty of it. I made up another litre last night and went over all the biker kush leaf by leaf and carefully sprayed every one. I also trimmed away any leaves with visible damage and I sprayed them as well before putting them into the compost. Thanks for the advice, if this stuff I have doesn't work I will grab a bottle of that stuff you have used. I will let you know how I get on.

Of course I forgot to take the picture while she was out in natural light again🤦‍♂️ but she's starting to turn black, she's only run once, maybe twice but this is the first time she's changed colors

she reminds me of her GPS Gunslinger father more than the White Rhino×Mazar mother, I can't recall her ever darkening up but it has been a few years

Hi Beachwalker

Quick?...is your small cloning pot set up like a hempy pot with the fluid level and drain hole?

Looks like pics of molybdenum deficiency that i’ve seen or low pH.

Thanks for the input, however it's neither of those, it's changing color due to the cooler temperatures like it's male parent that I mentioned above

Although very rare in soil here's more info on molybdenum deficiencies

Time to come clean! This is my dirty little secret🤦‍♂️

Just happened to find this post and wanted to share it

Been using TM-7 for four of the five years that I've been growing in soil, good stuff & well worth the $$, hope this helps (I know it will)🙂👌

sorry I'm late getting back to you on this; that plant is from seed. Wanted to mention that I have a plant called Mazzy Star that's very difficult to clone and I don't know why?

I think I've had maybe one or two other strains that were very slow but I find if I give them an extra week (if I can keep them healthy that long) will eventually root; I'm having great luck right now cloning in my seed starting mix, but I don't want to jinx it..!🤞

Sorry I'm late getting back to you I did post a link to the original post but I'm just getting time to read thru the beach house now

If I threw an air bubbler in my cloning tray it would be called 'passive Hydroponics' which is a term and growing Style that was popular in the last century & I grew that way for years before going flood and drain

but I don't think I've heard that term once since I've started growing again in the last 5 years and I've only seen one person who is using passive Hydroponics as well, so for some reason it's not in Vogue anymore

As described in the link those are only little 2-inch pots that sit in a half an inch of water I don't bother with an AirStone I change the water every 3 or 4 days and that's about it, it's working really good so far, hope that helps!
