Thanks Knuckels and others.

The mothers were getting fed ~1.0 ec. clones cut, stuck in a cup of tap water, then used rooting hormone and stuck straight into coco.

Decided to feed with a light nute mix, but was not sure if a ph specific to cloning was common. Usually ph my nute mix to 5.8 (+/- 0.1).

Yep been using the RO+calmag+LK+rhizotonic to charge the coco for clones and seedlings and also as a foliar spray. When they get roots I start adding some nutes to the mix and back off on the rhizotonic. Had one plant root in 7 days.

This is my first time cloning in coco and I just filled the bottom of my tray with just enough water to barely fill the grooves, cut some clones, snipped the fan leaf ends off, dipped them in dip & grow liquid solution, & stuck them in the coco. I then misted them with a light folier spray of maxicrop seaweed very diluted and put the dome on for a couple days with the vents closed. Day 3 in the morning I opened both vents half way and they didn't wilt so I opened the vents the rest of the way morning of day 4. Both days I misted the clones with plain water 3x. Day 5 I took the dome off for an whole hour and they were still fine so I left it off and I just mist them 3x per day. Days 6 and 7 misted 2x and put some more water in the bottom of my tray evening of day 7. Its day 8 and one of them has already sprouted a bunch of roots and has been transplanted into a solo cup of coco. Hopefully a few more will have roots later today. Its a waiting game and some strains seem to clone easier than others. Good luck!

You can clone in coco, in fact I only clone in coco, not soil or rockwool. It is a very clean substrate without insects or molds.

1. Scrape some of the outside of the stem to make it easier for the roots to break through. Cut the clones at the final length while holding them under water, so no air bubble can travel up the stem.

2. Coco needs to stand in water for a day or so before you can use it.

I'm taking about bagged (Canna) Coco, not coco bricks, which have to be flushed or prepared with a flushing agent.

For seeds, I would let the coco stand in a nutrient solution of 0.4EC of high P/K late flowering solution, and a pH of 6.0 (which you can use throughout the grow). That really puts a big root system on the seedlings, and prevents purpling of the stems or need for support.

However for clones, don't use any nutrients, other than rooting powder. However the same nutrients can be used after the clones have rooted, to stimulate massive root growth.

3. Use a container of whatever size you like, however make sure there is a drainage layer of perlite that is as high as the drainage holes, so there is no standing water after watering, which will rot the roots.

4. Outdoors, the clones should have filtered light.

I really like using sunlight and horticultural fleece, which the plants really love.

5. Don't mix the coco with perlite.

This way you need to water less. I would water twice a week for the first week. Don't overwater.
