Unhappy Water Cloning problem.....

Hello ICmag-ers,

I have been using simple water cloning mostly for a few years, with 'reasonable' success.

I never got a high percentage but high enough for myself.

But, lately i haven't been getting any success.... sometimes they start to get tiny white nodules but then they just stall and eventually turn yellow and die.

I liked the water cloning method because i could just have a little bottle or 2 with water and forget about them.

Does anyone else water clone? If so, what would you think is the problem?

I would like to figure out what it is because it was so easy and used no time or space.

I guess if no one can give me advice about water cloning, i will have to put more effort into a different method.

Merry Christmas and thank you.

Do you change the water in your cup often?

Has your water quality changed?

I’ve used this method in the past with varying results as well.

Too many cuts in the same cup?

What are the details behind your method & madness?

Me I use a cup of tap water & change the water every third day or more often.

That's generally about my same method

I'm going to just do a perlite and peat moss mixture comparison.

I use a very simple wick cloner using two rubbermaid containers, tiki torch wicks and pure perlite. Put ph'd water in the bottom container and walk away. If you mix peat moss with the perlite watch out for it holding too much water. I tried some vermiculite initially and it was too wet. Pure perlite gives me a 98% success rate. I also tried water cloning. While my success rate was about 70%, it took an average of about three weeks for me to get roots. The wick cloner gives me roots in about 10 days.

I have a very simple method that gets 100% every time.

Take a clear container. Cover it with black & white material all around and tape it together.

Poke small holes in the top and make a large enough hole to allow an air stone in.

Take cuttings, immediately immerse in water, scrape off the ends and place in container.

Add regular tap water as high as you can, connect the air stone to an air pump and place a 20w CFL bulb about 4-6" away from the cuttings.

That's it. Then let it sit there and after 1-2 weeks they should all root.

Don't adjust the pH, don't let temps get too low and refill water if it drops below cutting level.

This works for me year round, regardless of humidity and temperature.

Hope this helps.
