I was reading the April 2007 magazine when I came across a pretty interesting article. Somebody asked what was the best way to make clones, how do you make clones, what's a good temperature, etc. This article was a great read. Check it out. ARTICLE FROM HIGH TIMES APRIL 2007 MAGAZINE The best way to make clones is always the way that is best for you! You can propagate or reproduce cannabis by cutting a growing branch tip and rooting it. Here's the way I like to make clones. Choose a mother plant that's at least two months old. If the variety is difficult to clone, leach the soil with 2 gallons of water for each gallon of soil every morning for a week before taking clones. Don't add fertilizer. Use a sharp blade to make a 45-degree cut across firm, healthy branches, generally those that are 0.125 to 0.25 inches [3 to 6 mm] wide and 2 to 4 inches [3 to 5cm] in length. Take care not to smash the end of the stem when making the cut. Trim off 2 or 3 sets of leaves and growth nodes so the stem can fit into the soil There should be at least two sets of leaves above the soil line and 1 or 2 sets of trimmed nodes below ground. When cutting, make the slice halfway between the sets of nodes. Immediately place the cut end in water. Store cut clones in water while making more clones. I like to use Oasis root cubes. Saturate cubes in water pH balanced at about 6.0. Make a hole in the cube a little larger then the stem. The hole should stop about half a inch from the bottom of the container to allow for root growth. Dip stem in a rooting gel as per instructions. When planting, take special care to keep a solid layer or hormone gel or powder around the stem while gently packing soil into place. Lightly water until the surface is evenly moist. Keep cuttings moist at all times, but don't let the soil get soggy. Clones root fastest with 18 to 24 hours of fluorescent light. Coll white fluorescents [or a combination of warm and cool white] are excellent for rooting. Clones root fastest when humidity levels are 95% to 100% the first two days and gradually reduced to 80% to 85% during the following week. A humidity tent will help keep humidity high. Construct the tent out of plastic bags, rigid plastic, or glass. Remember to leave openings for air to flow in and out so little clones can breathe. If practical, mist clones several times a day as an alternative to the humidity tent. Remove any sick, rotting, or dead foliage. Cut leaves in half to lower transpiration surface and keep them from overlapping. Clones root faster when the growing medium is a few degrees warmer than the ambient air temperature. For best results, keep the rooting medium at 75 to 80 degrees F [or 24 to 27 degrees C]. Keep the air temperature cooler by 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit [or 3 to 5.5 degrees Celsius] than the substrate. Use a heat pad, heating cables or an incandescent light bulb to heat rooting medium. In about two weeks, your cutting should be rooted. Signs that you've rooted include yellow leaf tips, roots growing out drain holes and vertical growth of the clones. I hope everyone enjoyed the read. I typed it right out of the magazine. Man, my neck hurts!
