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.

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.
