    so my clones have rooted well in the humidity dome on day 15 but i am no where near ready to transplant to the veg chamber. so...
    1. is the dome just for root developement?
    2. can i leave them in it for a few more weeks?
    3. how long is too long?

    i have a cool cab dwc set up so extra long roots are no prob but there just arent any open spots for them yet. this wont be a prob next run cause i built a flowering chamber but for now i have to let the girls finish where they are.

    there is still plenty of room for them at the top in the cloning chamber i just need to know if i can leave them in there for a while . i guess i'll start feeding them 1/2 strength solution. but the way its going they will beready to clone again by the time i cut the current plants .
    any help is appreciated!

    carful when you take them out of the humidity dome because they might go threw a little bit of shock and it may get mildew i know this dont answer your question but still its advice

    after 2 1/2 weeks of them being in there send them to the veg chamber, because at the middle of week 2 they start to go into vegie stage around day 17-20

    make sure before you transplant the roots arnt too long, i left mine in a pot too long the other day and ripped half the roots off

    Domes should be taken off after 2 weeks cuz its only ther so the humidity waters the leafs and at 2 weeks the roots are developed so u can just water it as a plant threw the dirt not as a baby clone eny more , hope this helped u

    And mine a year and some change later ;)

    What i was actually wondering about was once i have roots (THey are about 1/2" to an 1 1/2" Long) Can i leave the humidity dome off of 4 /4 Clones rooted Saturday will be the 2 week date so about 9-10 days showed roots

    Question is should i keep them under there or move them into my Veg Chamber?

    Guess it does not hurt to keep them there till saturday i just wanted to know because it always worries me that they will not get enough air when im not around to open it.
