Thumbs up Holding cuttings in a stasis state... (the refrigerator method)

aka "Subcooled Cuttings"

The crisper drawer and a ziploc bag will provide a suitable stasis* chamber for fresh cuttings for up to around 6..7..8 weeks.
(*Stasis= maintaining a constant level...Stable state...dormant)

In order to obtain this sort of longevity in the fridge, the bag containing the dry**, unrooted branches should be opened to breathe at least once a week,better yet,twice a week. Partially puff the bag before sealing with your breath...
Cuttings that are kept in the refrigerator this way actually will root faster than conventional non-refrigerated cuttings once they are removed from the coolness of the refrigerator on up to a point of about 2 or 3 weeks, which at that time they will take proceed to take longer to root and you may even just lose a few.
Important: When they are removed from the refrigerator to be rooted, be sure to recut the stem.

The holding of cuttings in "fridge stasis" opens the door to many possibilities such as... testing many different males, holding strains while evaluating, changing the way you time your mothers,... etc..

That method has worked well for many, but you dont need a fridge, plastic or stasis to keep cuttings for that long

This group of different sized cuttings sat in plain water for six weeks and would have gone longer if I had let them.

one thing to remember is that yours are rooted.

a unrooted clone is plant matter not a plant.

there for can not be counted as a plant in case of a raid.
as i use the refrigerator to hold clone for me. im a med user and only able to have 6 plant's.

flower 6 and have clone for next round ready no need for mothers

also I.M. Boggled great thread i have been using this for a long time now. one thing i would like to add..( 6.7-8 weeks) is only the start......heheh i have had them up to 2 months and still root for me.

just so everyone clear on this..... the steams must be in water & the leaf's out of water. i just use tap water. no need to ph

peace

Interesting point. Being fully illegal makes it easier I guess, in a twisted sort of way. Still, as far as keeping genetics in a form of stasis for use months later, leaving them in a cup of water is a viable option. It's even easy to set up a nearly maintenance free way of doing it.

So if you put them in the frig, can't mold grow?

the frig keeps things very cold, what kind of temps are going to be in the drawer?? this info would be helpful, I don't mind trying the frig method post those temps & humidity when you get some time.

Sparkdude - I understand cheer up!

Oh, sure you can take cuttings in flower. All the way up to harvest, in fact. It's an ugly way of growing at first, but eventully you will have a fuly revegged plant that will throw out more clones than you know what to do with.

This is after several weeks of 24/0 lighting, a thorough flush and light N feeding



A week later



After the three main stalks are taken for cuttings, the lower growth explodes. You can clearly see the bud pieces being grown out in this pic.
