LET'S CLONE IN DIRT, WTF!

That's right dirt cloning. I've tried just about every method known to mankind except this. I can usually produce high number of clones for SOG grows consistently using sphagnum moss or coco/perlite mix.

But this time I'm using dirt as the propagating medium and no clonex or other rooting gels or powder. The medium is Earthcore Premium Potting Mix cos I happened to have some lying around.

The donor mums were produced from Colloidal Silver feminized seed as some of you may be aware. Indica, 100%, my indica "High Country Indica". A tried and tested reliable performer.

So let's see how they go.

40 CELL HIKO TRAY FILLED WITH THE MIX




CS FEMINIZED DONOR MUMS




40 CLONES LATER




AND GIVE THE MUMS A SEVERE HAIRCUT




The clones are under a dome, no bottom heat. Just relying on room temp which is probably about 22C.

I'll give the mums a good feed and back under the 430W Son T I use for maintaining them.

These clones may give me a good head start for next summers outdoor adventures. No reason why soil cloning will not work, plenty of people do it with cannabis and other plants and have been for 1000's of years.

Cheers.

The tomatoes at my place are just about out of control in summer. They layer themselves, a branch touches dirt, puts out roots and a new plant is born.

WILLOW, salix sp, LAYERS EASILY TOO, THE SCOURGE OF WATER WAYS AROUND HERE




This is natural cloning, no clonex, heat mats required. Interesting, grevilleas do it too.

No clonex, no heat. Why not? Is this just to save the genetics for next summer so % isn't too important?

I'm going to take top clones from my 8 vegging Iranian Autoflowers soon to double my #. I've never cloned before and am running out of summer, so % is important. I'm probably going to do jiffy's or rockwool since I've got both kicking around, but I'll still be watching your outcome.

Goodluck bud!

I've always used a seedling soil mix for cloning as it just seems simpler. I usually get 95%+ strikerates so never had a need to try anything else lol

I think I'm going organic just for something different, plants clone naturally, many plants, willow can do it at high altitudes, where it's cold, frosty, but they multiply. KOG has been doing it for years. It is a little bit frosty here, snow on the ground.

Good stuff, my fire is raging.

I can take 3 or more clones off one stem, not just the tops, use the entire plant, it's all good.

I cut/snap off a branch n just stick her in moist soil in a fairly shady spot, no midday sun, usually water morning n night.

I imagine we live in a similiar environment been in high country myself...cold winters n hot summers...I have 4 true seasons here...dif state though.
