    OK guys I'm trying to decide when is the best time to plant a clone into soil? I use the turbo kloner with 100% success for cloning and rooting! But should I let the roots gets a few inches long or should I plant it into soil as soon as they sprout their first inch of roots? I have noticed it kinda shocks the plants when planted into soil and I'm trying to lessen that stress!

    Any advice is appreciated and thank you ahead of time!

    Hey man I start my clones in soil right now im using coco coir they all stood up within 6 hrs looking amazing.

    As long as your soil is good and healthy they should take fine assuming you got good drainage

    I used to use rapid rooters and they were good but if something happened and you weren't around for a day or 2 you could lose all your clones! I recently switched to an aerophonic cloner and I can forget I even took clones! Just let em be and guaranteed roots in 7 days! I absolutely love it! But I'm recycled living organics which I love as well! But this aero cloner thing is just too easy! I want to place my clones into soil at the perfect time but I'm not sure when's the best!

    Dude I agree clone machine is superior I used to make alot of babys but for my smaller op My coco method works bomb its cool cuz I dont gotta clean nothing or buy anything I already got the coco and clone x it last forever I just fill a pot dip my stem then plant ... my first time ever 100% cloning success in soil was from dollar general...the soil was very alive tho had mushrooms popping out but all 6 clones rooted amazing. I think the more alive your soil is the better. Soil I believe utilizes alot of microbes bacteria and such so the more living it is the better. My soil had mushrooms n shit growing out so I knew it was living.

    They seem to take to the soil a little quicker when the roots are less then 1 - 2" over that they seem to slow down a little for me but all take to soil eventually. I have even moved a plant out of vegger into soil with over 2 feet of roots and it still took to the soil but it was slow going at first and I admit there was a few days where I thought I killed her but after a week it looked like she was always in soil.
