I would say yes. Like I said before, you can lower the level of water after the rooting begins, but they must be in the water some. I just made some clones by sticking cuttings in a 3 oz cup with no gel or hormones or air stones, but they were submerged the whole time. You need to get your ph down to around 6.0 and no nutes. I am lucky and have a well with very low ph. If you want to see my 5 cent hydro-cloner, look here at post #127 :

I recently attempted my first cloning experiment after being given an AG. I did the normal 45 deg cut under water, scraped the outer layer off on the bottom inch or so. Next I took Gatorade bottles, drilled a whole in the cap, filled with water, and placed the clone's stem inside. I let these sit in medium shade for 10 days, then transplanted to the AG. Roots had not yet sprouted. I had a batch of basil going, with a few open spots. The basil was on its 4th week so was on a nute schedule of 1 large tablet of AG nuts per week. After 5 days, the clone had went from zero roots to 1" roots and producing new veg.
The cuttings were taken from a Purple Trainwreck strain from my outdoor medical grow which was about 2 weeks into flower. The cloning experiment was more of a result in "let's try this" than an actual attempt of growing ganja in my AG. It seems to be growing so good though, I may play this thing out to the end.
/me goes to the hardware store to start modding his AG.
Im a fan of the AG so far.
