CLONERS- a collection of various methods

There are a million ways to clone in the Naked City. Trouble is finding the method that works for you. No other area of growing will see such disparate results from identical procedures. What saves me may kill you dead. Domes are the prime example. Many say always, many say never. In the end, if it makes roots, it’s the right way to go.

Many of these can be found in the Link-O-Rama (the first place one should look before asking any question on any subject) but, people never seem to look there. You’ll note this thread is closed to new comments so that readers need not filter through comments, questions or jokes. I’ll be posting edited versions, that they may be seen at a glance, with links to original posts for full details.

This first set will be in order of complexity starting with the simplest. If you feel I’ve missed a method (still like to find ones for soil and coco) or you have an intersting variation on an existing method, shoot me a PM for consideration.

On with the show!...

Water Cloning

Cloning in plain water under fluoros by "guest"

Unlike every other cloning method, water cloning requires no rooting hormone, humidity dome, ph check or specific kind of water to make it work. The cuttings snipped end is inserted in water and simply continues on as if nothing had happened, transpiring moisture through its leaves, keeping water pressure up the proper way, from stem to leaves, as oposed to artificial room humidity. Ph and water quality are similarly non issues because there is no root system to be affected by either factor.

Water Cloning - Part Deux

This post has been edited to fit in a single window. Please see the original for further reading.

'Solo Cloning' - Cheap and Easy Cloning by Peregrin Took

I get asked about my cloning technique alot, and figured it was time to do a little how-to.

This is super simple, and hard to screw up. All you need is:

-Cups, two different sizes. The larger size shouldnt be clear, but somewhat opaque, like the red party cups shown.

-Rooting hormone. I use whatever is cheap.

-Water

-Cuttings



Now your done, simply stick em under some low wattage lighting, and wait. After around a week or so, you can start lifting the top cup and checking for roots. Takes me anywhere from 5-15 days to start seeing 'em.

Wick System - Perlite

Super Cheap Mass Cloner by "guest"

My wife found these containers at the dollar store. I bought 2 packages of tiki torch wicks for about $1.50 each.To increase the depth of the reservoir, I cut the top ring from the white dishpan to use as a lift, giving an 1 1/2" deep res.



This is how it nests together. I adjusted the wicks to touch the bottom of the unit. (note the white "ring" between the black tubs is just that, a ring. There are only two tubs. fb)



The white tub can be inverted and inserted snugly as a humidity dome and light diffuser. The 50 site wick cloner for under $10.00

Wickless Wick System - Vermiculite

This post has been HEAVILY edited to fit in a single window. Please see the original for further reading.

World class cloner new at walmart by "guest"

Less than 3 bucks and works like a charm....



The only modification I made to what I bought from walmart is drilling 3 small holes(1/32") bit in each of the bottom caps.... I wrote numbers on all the wells for use with different plants etc....In this pic the caps are on the bottom...



The pic shows the cloner filled with (fine grade) vermiculite sitting in a small container which I fill so there is about an inch or so of water above the blue bottom caps... refill before the water level reaches the bottom blue cap...

Cheap Homeade Dome Cloner by rule35sub1

I bought some Glad storage containers. I cut out the centers of the lids and glued them together. I then snapped it together and put in some clones. This unit works great, and it was built for under 5 bucks.

Bubblers - the Right Way

Stripped to the bone! With apologies to Cortez, please refer to the original thread.

Step by step bubble cloner set up (good for newb cloners) by Cortez



I find the best thing to do is nothing at all.LEAVE EM ALONE. No nutes,no rooting aids, indirect light only.Don't worry about blacking out your container.There is no difference.Remember a plant's worst enemy is man!!!! p.s I transplant(to coco soil mix) when tap roots develop side shoots.. Hope this helps!!!...........Cortez
