    Nice, I myself dont always use a humi-dome when taking cuttings in favor of frequent misting. However if you read Djreed57's earlier post he said he IS using a dome, as such the plants are going to experience some degree of shock when transitioning. I was simply suggesting he extend the clones time to recoup before making the move to the veg area. Everyone has their own respective method and I believe Djreed57 was seeking advice on improving his method, Not using another method altogether. But youre definitely right, open-air cloning with a cloner is always another option.

    Ii ano av tried a few ways of cloning and found this is my best and makes better clones then people give out round this place... I was just sharing my way as found it very cheap and effective and can plant them into anything after.. I am just at a soil grower at the moment but would like to try hydro 1 day

    As far as the heat mat goes it definitely would be beneficial if your containers are sitting directly on a cold cement slab. Something else I would suggest is elevating the containers above the cement atleaat a few inches, Maybe on a layer or two of plywood to help insulate the containers. Cold will definitely hinder growth, Which is why the heat mats are so useful and commonly used. Regardless of the heat mats I would definitely make an effort to protect the plants from that cold cement slab, Im betting you will see an almost immediate gain in growth. And as far as round heat mats go im sure they exist but have idea where to get them. However this could be a good option http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfmc=3578+3743+24992&pcatid=24992 try the 15w.
    hope that helps.

    Absolutely, Once you get a cloner dialed they can be very effective.

    As far as the roots showing through the rockwool cubes goes it shouldnt be an issue for an extra day or two, As long as they stay moist and dont start turning green from light exposure. But you might want to consider getting some 4" cubes so the plants can develop a more substantial and hardy root structure. But really im thinking temperature is you primary issue.

    What is the general consensus on how often to water during veg using recirculating drip system?

    My medium is 4" rockwool in hydroton medium. Also, hydroton balls over rockwall cube pieces as medium?

    Water at night?

    Thanks fellow humans

    So What up blades. Kind of new to hydro. third full run through. I run a 6 bucket rdwc system I built myself. Cycles the water ten times an hour. Good flow and lots of dissolved oxygen Well a week or so ago the ac went out and water got up to like 85 degrees for a few days. fuck I know way to hot. I got problem worked out and now keep it around 75-78 still a tad high, but best I can do in the summer without a chiller. Anyhow I nioticed some slow growth during all this, but nothing too alarming. Oh yeah ph got way high with the hot water. So now I have somewhat brown roots, but not bad, and no slime, but the plants are all wilted and yellowing from the bottom up. The new growth since new rez looks good not great, but color is on point, however the rest keeps getting worse. I am worried that by the end of the day tomorrow I will be past the point of no return. I run canna nutes with Rizotonic, and canna added. Room is about 80 degrees in the summer, but supplement with co2. I have been growing for over 10 years just not in hydro for long. Any suggestions?
