Stretch started at the height of the trellis, it's less than 2 weeks into flower. Very happy with these 2, the papaya is invading the cali blues space it's a bush ✌️
New phone too hopefully pics are better

Some science experiments with the clones this time. Put some in root riot cubes (8) and the rest (6) in my DIY aeroponics cloner.

New stuff to test:

1) Never used the cubes before. They seem easy as hell to use. Little cleanup/prep needed.

2) Also, gave all of them a dip in some clonex rooting gel. It is crazy sticky and super viscus. Reminds me of polyethylene oxide when i try to pour a bit out into a spoon for dips.

3) I usually run my cloner bucket with tap water. This time I added about 10ml of clonex liquid to the bucket.

Next time: might try some of that clonex spray, but dont know.

Looking to get healthy roots quicker. Plain water works well (100% root so far) but it takes me 12 days before i have the roots i want before putting them in soil.
Seems the Clonex root gel does speed things up.. but I didn't exactly follow the scientific method, and there was no control. Today is 6 days since cut (took 12 days for this level of root production previously.)

Really tight node spacing on this one so it ended up with 2 nodes under the plug.. cool to see how the roots shoot out from the node first.

Hard to tell with the cubes. Some roots popping out, but i don't know what it looks like inside the cube.

So, initial thoughts. I like the rooting gel. Seems to help. The clonex in the bucket also seems to help since there are (at least from what i can see) longer and more densely packed roots in the bucket, and only a few popped out of the cube. I need to do an experiment with better controls to really see what's up.

One thing about the cubes: root hair like a mofo.

Nice and fuzzy. Ready for soil.

Looking a little empty in the clone dome.

Took some cuts.. got a bit experimental. Lots of other plants allow you to root mutliple cuts off a single branch... so why not cannabis? Anyone else try it?

I’ve got a half dozen in cubes for the first time. I was using 2” pots and soil before that, with 100% success, but rooting sometimes felt a touch slow. Today I put 9 into 3/4” little pots with pro-mix that I sifted fine and added gently. They’re about the volume of a plug. I really enjoyed that and I’m pretty sure that‘s gonna be how I roll cuttings for a while..

I also cheat and clone split stalks, instead of one stalk Rocking 2 makes for a bit of a jump start.

That's smart. I thing thats pretty much what these root riot cubes are made out of. Mostly just peat i think.

Nice! That is good to see. These are all Banner #2 cuts

As in grafting? I’ve got some Chem plants that I was thinking about using as rootstock for some Kush clones..
I think he was referring to taking multiple cuttings from the same branch.

I'd be really interested to see successful cannabis grafts though! That would be awesome.
