    Well Panop... do tell me of this wick cloner that you speak of
    Sow some seed,
    Grow a tree,
    Fill your lungs with THC! :bongsmi:
    White as haze,
    Shiny as stars
    Buds glisten before cultivators. :canabis:
    The smell is narcotic,
    Creeping on my brain,
    The rush never stops of this THC train.
    And for the 5-0
    What you must know…
    WE SHALL OVERGROW!!!! :rasta:

        nice looking clones! Your new wick cloner seems to kick ass!

          Looking good mate, I've been thinking lately that I should start some mums and clone rather than growing from bean. Once it's setup it must be lots faster surely?

            Sure...

            First things first, this is my variation on Pontiac's Wick Cloner. Basically, the wick cloner relies on capillary action (via a wick) to pull water from a reservoir to a container full of absorbent medium. Pontiac used soda bottles to build his cloner, while I use DVD spindle covers.; two 25's and a 50, I think...

            Here is the finished product, completely assembled and ready to clone. The weatherstripping around the bottom of the 50 disc spindle serves as a flange to hold it above the water level in the reservoir.


            Once you break it down, you can see that the cloner has three components:
            A dome, a section for the perlite, and a reservoir.


            Here's a shot of the cloner without the lid and perlite...

            You can see where I made four holes in the container, and threaded a piece of cotton fabric through each of the holes. Others use wicks, but t-shirt strips work just as well; all that matters is the material doesn't fit too tightly, or else the water might not make it up to the perlite.

            Anyways, you spread out your excess wick material on the floor of the container and load it up with some perlite. Prewet that whole section, and fill your reservoir with some clean water, and you are ready to clone.



            The best part about wick cloners is that they require no extra equipment for them to operate. Just set it and forget it; a week or so later, you should be staring at some lovely roots...

            Here's what I got after six days...

            One or two more days and they're ready for planting!

              Totally...

              With that Snow White mom I had, I was clipping clone-sized cuttings nearly every week and a half.

              I like moms and clones because they are guaranteed female, barring any environmental screw-ups. Not to mention, the fact that they are ready to flower a week or so after rooting is pretty cool too...

              I suggest giving it a try, even if you don't end up sticking with it for more than a grow or two.

                Here's what's poppin' this week in the Panopticabs...

                Veg Cab...


                NLxWR @ 4 weeks veg...


                Bubbleicious @ 6 weeks veg...


                Snow White B @ 13 weeks veg...


                Hashberries @ week 0 veg...

                Still a little wilty, but within the next day I bet they'll harden off and look a little tougher...

                Snow White C @ week 7 flower...


                Not a whole lot to discuss...

                At this point, I've started watching the trichomes on my flowering plants. I'm seeing mostly clear, with a fair amount of cloudy, and an amber here and there. They'll probably go another week or two, as I'm looking for 60% amber and 40% cloudy to play up the plant's couchlock tendencies.

                I've began LSTing my NLxWR plant even though it's side shoots aren't as long as I'd like, mainly because the stem was about to harden off, preventing any further bending of the main stem.

                The Bubbleicious plant is really starting to take off. I can't wait to get the B plant out of the veg cab so I can move this one to a larger pot. I had a chance to check out the flowering donor plant yesterday, and it smells like straight up gum! It's shaping up to be a kickass pheno. Thanks frozen...

                As for my B plant, she's just raring to flower. It's going to be devastating...

                Looks like it's going to be a frosty winter...

                        Very nice mate, I'll be looking forward to seeing how your hashberries progress - I've read a lot of good things about that strain!

                        Nice varieties you've got there. K+

                              Hey panop, hows the snow white doing? must be close to harvest now surely?

                                How many days are the Snow Whites? Don't forget to take a pic or two before you cut 'em! It looks like you yield is going to be a lot better this time! Are you going to put the other Snow White B directly into flowering? Also, do you plan to put anything else in with the the B clone? I bet you could fit one other smaller clone.
