Clones not rooting
I cut a few clones on the 1st, now its the 14 so in two weeks all I've noticed is the stem has changed texture a little bit to a pale and has little bumps.
I cut at a 45, then cut again underwater to ensure no air buble went in the stem. Then directly out the water I dipped them into rooting powder. I have them in jiffy pellets, originally I had them in a container with 1in of water so the bottom of the stem was still submerged. I was told not to have them sit in water like that, so I cut a drainage hole in it. I have a heating pad under it, temp 75-80. I mist three times a day. Every 5 days I pulled a few out to see whats happening then I rediped them in the powder.
Any ideas why they've not started to root?

Wow sounds like you got problems. Sounds to me like they might be drowned do you have any pics ? One time I had cuttins I kept too wet and I llost most of them they will just rot instead of root if their too wet all the time I only ever misted once a day and had good results with that if you took your clones out of the pods you had them in to check for roots there is a good chance that being disturbed like that might kill them weather re-dipped or not (sorry not tryin to be the bearer of bad news)....is your container covered ? If so I would suggest takin the lid off for a half hour a day to let some moisture out were theyt takin while in veg or flowering cycle ? I've seen 3 weeKs waitin for roots to show in flowering clones. So don't give up ...... Cuttings can be fussy but once you get the hang of it you'll be laughing best of luck hope I could help keep in mind this is my oppinion I'm sure there are peiople who would disagree with me but what I know works cuz I've done it my self
All the best

Yeah I cut them when the plant was flowering, they have little baby buds on them. I just removed the very bottom stems and cut them into little 3-4in clones. They're in a dome, my humidity reader said its 90-99% lol. They're two weeks old and look healthy still, only one leaf on one of the clones is yellow. I just took the dome off and misted them because they looked dry, I sprayed them a few hours ago also.

Keep the growing medium moist, but NOT wet. Too much water, whether in the medium, or sprayed on, makes it so the little plants don't have to work to grow roots. They grow roots to find water. Make sure everything you use is ph balanced, and never ever use distilled water. They actually like well water not run through a softner more than anything. JMHO.

Alright, took the dome off lastnight misted them, woke up this morning and they were shriveled up raisins.. I misted the hell out of them and put the dome back on, going to see if theres any life in them
i use that to root my cuttings. Within 8-10 days I have inch long roots. Easy.Cheap. The only thing is that you will only be able to fit about 6 cuttings max in it.Thats enough for me
Lol jesus man. They are taking a beating....

Firstly some comments that others made were good. But here is my tupence..
1/ Don't have them too wet this will only rot the bottoms.
2/ Don't let them dry up they will only shrivel and die....
3/ use your heated pad but raise up the clones so they are not in direct contact through your heated propagator. Use some timber to raise them up and inch or 2.
4/ Make sure they get some ventalation daily. Stale air will stunt them from trying to produce roots.
5/ keep light on them 24/7
6/ don't over mist them, you want then to kickstart into growing root and if the leaves are constantly wet they are folar feeding.
7/ patience my friend....
Hope this help'd
Whats the temp in the dome? Gotta keep those roots warm!
Never argue with an idiot - they drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.
If these clones don't work then I'mm go buy this in a few days, thanks
