Update: I have found that just cutting and transferring the freshly rooted large air layers straight to DWC without waiting for a bigger root ball in coco to work awesome, the leaves never droop even without covering the plant with garbage bags that way.
Same with the more rooted out ones transplanted into coco 1 gal pots, directly from the solo cups, they all show no signs of wilting or stress.
The only time I had a plant or 2 start to wilt is because I almost split off a few of the air layers branches below the cups from moving them so much when watering. They perked right back up though and grew roots even faster when I got to them some water and feed. had to cut them by the time just a sliver of skin was holding them on mom.
All in all I have no doubt that from now on, going straight into a 3.75 inch net cup and then a DWC bucket, after my 3-way root riot method (the only way I will go from now one) shows roots, will work 100%! Even on the biggest clones with just a few roots. I'm talking .5 to 1+ inch stalks even
Many thanks to everyone on ICMag, that ever took the time to teach about air layering, I can clone out full sized plants like a boss now!
