taking bigger clones

ive recently started taking bigger clones. most people's clones are about 5-7 inches tall, but the clones i took are about 12-15 inches. they root about the same as smaller clones, but have the benefit of being much taller

I know this is old, but what's the secret? Every time I've tried taking very large clones, they wilted and died pretty quickly.

Unless you have big moms it’s a little difficult to take large cuts that don’t have a woody portion of stalk, which slows down the rooting. They also inevitably take up more room in the cloner or tray. It works fine if you have the setup for it & a bit of patience.

well, your mileage may vary but I use a grow tray with those plastic medium holders with rockwool and roto rooter plugs, I don't spray the clones with water but I put in a generous amount of tap water (mixed with leftover nutrients from watering mother plants) every 5-6 daysdays in the tray and that's enough to keep them alive. within 2 weeks they grow roots and are ready for the big time

the key is low light, cutting/trimming fan leaves and warm temps. always keep the medium wet and warm. its best to remove extra branches that impede the rooting process

if all else fails, moisten some fox farms or roots organic soil, and plant large clones after applying rooting hormone like dip and grow
sorry if I didn't explain in detail before

Skip on the tray dome cut the bottom out of a large water bottle 5-7 gallon and use a saucer with perialite room for 6 10" clones

I throw mine in an water spray cloner ... 7-12 inch and take 2 cuts and the last cut under water.

depends on water temp and embolism if they throw roots before an week

What's the humidity % in the room ya leave the clones in... if found dome/domeless all has to do with location and room environment....

I drop fresh cuttings in a cup of nutrient solution as I'm taking them. This hydrates the cuttings and prevents wilting. No domes needed.
