Who has made one? Do you need one?
For what?....Clones?....They r so cheap to buy and effective. They have those little slide windows that u can slowly open up, when required, to introduce the new environment a bit at a time. I am sure there couldn't be that much involved in making yr own, though I am not sure it would compete effectively with a bought one, and they are not expensive at all.
The problem is that the cloner is homemade so the purchased ones wont fit.
I'm not sure what u got there as Im having trouble visualizing it.
Are u able to take a photo?
A homemade lid is your answer!
Plenty of idea's if you give detail as to its size,etc.
13.5" x 8" But that is the bubbler they will veg in, now that I think about it, I guess they dont have to root in there. my gf has these little kitchen herb gardens that come in little mini domes, I was just looking at that in the window sill and thinking about getting 2 or 3.
...and if it were my g/f, those herbs would be sitting in some makeshift half assed container already, and I would be getting her some new ones as soon as I could...lol..(although I wouldn't be very popular)
they dont need water right? Just wet rockwool?
Lol,the good books you would not be in.
I find bubble cloners work well without domes.
Cut lower leaves in half to slow transpiration,and aid with rooting.
All the best.
My clones look sad. wilty. what do I do?
Uh oh....what have u got them in?... rockwool or?....not too wet?..were they soft or hard wood?....keepin humidity levels up?...did u use a rootin compound or hormone?
rockwool, soft, maybe too wet? I had left the humidity dome a little open so they could breathe, I closed it again and I see a little improvement.
I used the gooey root stuff and I soaked the rockwool in the really expensive humbolt stuff.
Ok...rockwool is good...I keep my lid on till I see the first set of roots...soft wood doesn't make for the best clones.... I use the woodiest bits I can find.
Sounds like they might b recoverin a bit. Mist inside the lid to keep the humidity up.
I use only water to get my clones goin. I have over fert, them before. Moist not soakin wet rockwool. Dont ever squeeze the cubes if they r too wet. There is a method.
yeah gel, and the humbolt stuff is supposed to be "the shit" for cloning.
Cool...I just read up on it and it seems fine at the suggested doses.
Propagation: Mix 2 mL per gallon in non-chlorinated water. Soak rooting media with mixture prior to placing cuttings. Use throughout rearing stage. Suitable for aeroponic propagation.
Did u use some non-chlorinated water????....very important because of the chemical reactions that take place with chlorine.
yeah, I bought some distilled for clones.
I always bubble my water overnight at least, but for them I actually bought distilled. Which it is my understanding doesnt have enough mg, but should be ok for the little guys.
Sweet...That was a good move. Hopefully they will recover after a sleep tonight and u can assess it again tomorrow. My advice is to keep the the lid on for a while longer...mist on the inside of the lid only and no venting yet.
Thanks, my actions this morning verify your advice. I closed the lid earlier and as the condensation builds up they are standing back up a little bit.
I dont know why I cracked the lid i guess I thought they needed to breathe. This stuff is not always intuitive.
Since they aren't actually growing yet, and are still undergoing a "metamorphosis", they dont have a photosynthesis period yet. I cut my clone leaves in half when I take them off because they are simply not required. Some growers leave lights on for 24hrs as clones. Not me though...18/6.
great improvement. A couple appear to be growing new leaves, how can I tell if they are rooting? I dont want to pull them out.
