And here’s a prime example. Used the “right” way, my bubbler killed everything it touched. Used “wrong” 100% success.
A one minute soak in full strength IBA/NAA clone solution. Cloning gel and Rockwool in 75ºF water, 1/4 tsp per gal each of GH FloraMicro and FloraBloom pHed to 5.8. Keeping cuts short with well trimmed leaves allows cloning as low as 15% RH (relative humidity) with neither domes or misting. Bottom shoots root in 10-14 days, tops in 5-7.
Member B. Friendly uses a bubler somewhere in between (mostly “right”) He has a heater, unlike Cortez but, uses no Rockwool, gel, food or pH adjustments.
$45 roughly canadian $$ for a 55 site bubble cloner, without the heater it's $100us with shipping for the same thing. Stick cuttings 2'' under water and they should root in 5+ days, I'll find out soon
