    In an effort to save these tasty Hemlocks I was hoping to get some feedback from y'all about a last ditch effort to try and salvage these clones. They have been in the bubble cloner for two weeks today with no signs of any roots yet. Granted, they were taken off of flowering plants but with the track record I've had as of late I don't won't to keep all my eggs in that basket. Should I bite the bullet and wait it out with the bubble cloner or scrap it and try and go for rapid rooters and a humidity dome? I was wondering if it was feasible to pull them out of the cloner as is, dip them in rooting hormone like they were fresh cuts, and then carry on like that?

    Can I get some feedback? I don't want to lose these flavors if at all possible.

    Thanks!

      If you're not seeing any slime and they seem healthy, keep them in the bubbler. Imo they have a better chance in there. Cuts taken from flowering plants take longer to root. I've had flowering cuts take over a month to root and come out just fine.

        The slimes waxes and wanes with the clear rez that I put in there. The larger leaves are starting to yellow and get crispy.

        Thanks for the feedback FunkJungle. Anybody else have experience with this?

            If you can post some pics of your cuts tops and bottoms I could give u a better idea of where you stand. Any slime is not good I would up the dose a little. You want consistent days with no slime for roots to start growing.

            If it keeps coming back you may need to take fresh cuts even with plants pretty far along in flower I've successfully rooted several times. Just take from the bottom where the flowers aren't as developed. Also if possible ones with stems that are still soft and flexible rather than woody. Personally I would take new cuts anyway just to be safe. If the ones you have are too infected with slime it will just keep coming back even with the clear rez.

            Same thing happened to me when I started using it. Slime kept coming back no matter how much I used, so I made a new bubbler and put fresh cuts in using clear rez from the start. No problems since. A few slime infested ones made it but most I just tossed. Depends how chronic it is.

              I'll post some pictures later tonight. The slime is a pain in the dick and keeps rearing its head. The clear rez will put it in check but it lingers. The leaves on the cuts are beginning to yellow and wither away. The stems at the cut are discolored and appear to be bleaching to a certain extent. The pessimist in me really doesn't see this round pulling through but who knows? I know that I'm about 95% sure I'm going to scrap this thing and go the jiffy cube/dome route again.

              Thanks for sticking with it Funk and I appreciate your feedback.

                This party is winding down now with the ADs coming down. It's a shame but I've hardly had the time to get around to trimming them up. One at a time it seems. I've got #2 and #3 trimmed up and in jars now. I've got the rubbermaid bin with my old soil cooking as the table. It's serves as a good one too at a decent height for the crawl.



                Next round of littleuns coming up. I hit them with some cal/mag on top of what they usually get and they are already looking better. They get pissed 'cause I have to keep them in the solo cups til they sex. Soon as that happens they are potted up to the gallon containers and then everybody is happy. You can also see the cuts in the bubble cloner in the background looking sad and useless. ;_; Going back to the dome methinks.





                They were shifted around and some potted up after these two pictures were taken.

                Here's a picture of the #3 in its jar, not a great picture but you get the idea.



                I'm gonna try to get the rest trimmed up and taken care of this weekend.

                  Holy shit I've been busy lately. Had to get back in here and update before much more time goes by. All the first round draft of the ADs are down and trimmed up. They took forever to dry out because I didn't think about it and watered them a day or so before chopping them. They are going to be heading to jars soon for curing. I've already got into everything though and it's all stoney for sure. Smells and flavors are still coming in but right now the tastiest is #4, there are hints of lemon that I'm always on the lookout for.

                  I finally bailed on the bubble cloner as it wasn't getting anywhere and I was tired of the gimmicks in the closet. Got a humidity dome and jiffy cubes. I threw the same old cuts of the Hemlocks that hadn't kicked the bucket yet. A #2 seems like's it's rooting but I haven't seen signs from any of the others yet. The original cut of the #2 is raging out in a gallon pot right now and needs to get potted up and flowered. Same goes for some #4 and 5 straggler cuts from the original ADs. Otherwise the App F3s are all sexed for the most part and in gallon pots ready for 5 gallons and flower time as well. The next two pictures are from 5/21.

                    The ants are still around and haven't payed any attention to the Terro ant traps that I put all over the crawlspace. I just smash any I see with my finger as I moving around the plants. The other flying insects are either Fungus Gnats or worse yet, Root Aphids. I see the ants carrying around the other critters every now and then so I don't know if that is "farming" or whatever but they still look like fungus gnats to me. While watering about a week or so ago I hit the plants with a mix of emulsified neem oil and SNS 203. It didn't seem to do anything from what I can tell so any of the subsequent waterings I'm going to a higher dosage of neem oil and am using a mix of cinnamon and rosemary oil. I just gave the Hemlocks the 203 instead of the 203 and neem because they are closer to harvest than anything else.

                    Here is an ant carrying around one of the insects.

                      The Hemlocks are right around 8 weeks right now and I usually run stuff at least 9 or 10 so they around two weeks to go unless they are really telling me they're ready. These pictures are from 5/25







                      The rest of the plants around the same bulb as the Hemlocks on 5/25

                        Here's the other bulb on 5/25







                        The first bulb again with the whole gang.



                        Going to be quitting the clover mix living mulch. I've found that it just seems to be another thing that you have to worry about and take care of. It dries off before the rest of the plant and is harder to keep up. I am also starting to thing that creates a more hospitable environment for whatever the flying critters are. This is purely speculation on my part though so take that with a grain of salt.



                        Thanks for stopping in. I'll try to get a couple of up to date pictures with the light off but my timing never seems to coincide with the light schedule.

                          Things have started to pick up again. I took the Hemlocks two days ago on 6/8/14 as I had to make room for some other girls going in. I'm getting ready for the last phase of the crawl grow too. The Hemlocks were taken at day 67. I would have let them go a little bit longer judging from the trichomes but they were already gobbling up their fan leaves pretty quickly. That's alright though, they will be some nice durban sativa hybrids that I really look forward to trying out here in two or so weeks. Here's the Hemlocks,

                              Out with the old, in with the new! Here is the last Appalchian Diesel #5, a Hemlock #2, and two Chemdawgs.

                                Bulb #1



                                Bulb #2



                                Appalachian F3s (First Round)



                                New bulb fired up and running for the first time



                                Definitely warming up down there with the new bulb. This wasn't hard to anticipate so I had already purchased an oscillating fan to help push all the hot air towards the extraction fan. I dialed the exhaust fan up a bit too. I can't wait to see how the App F3s develop.
