    I recently bought a 25 site Aero Cloner to see if I cant pick up my clone success ratio. I put 25 clones in exactly a week ago. Things have really been going smoothly and all has been well until the last 2 days.

    My clones have started to turn yellow and curl on there tips and get crispy. As you can see in the pics all of my clones have started to root some have 1/4 inch roots some smaller some just the beginning of root buds starting (lil white bumps). When do I add nutes with aero ???

    I added the prescribed dosage of HYDRO GUARD and Power Cloner solution at the start. I have not added nutes yet and am skeptical to do so. Buuuut they need something and SOON :cry: Temp is 80 and lower. Not sure what res temp is but I can check. Its not hot I know this and its not freezing. There under T5 about foot and a half to 2 foot above the cloner them.

    Please help me out I cant afford to loose these guys Im already behind on my grows.

    NORMAL!!! Just keep going, in another week you should see some long root growth, then the plants will start turning green again and before you know it they will be big healthy mommas. In fact with those little roots you have now you could add a tiny bit of fertilizer to the water.

    So there not going to eat themselves before then ? They have some leaf damage as you can see in a few of the photos ??? Kind of damaged where the new growth starts ??

    Yeah that always happens to me too. As long as the new growth is looking good your fine. you phed the solution right? If the yellowing bothers you you can add a humidity dome but it really only makes a bit of difference in grow time and not worth the hassle imo.
