    Just set your ph at 5.8

    Best nutrient absorption happens at 5.6 ish to 6.3ish
    In hydro higher for dirt

    So if you start at 5.8 and let it drift to 6.3 youll get a nice full range of absortion rates :)

    If transplanting into a medium .....the bigger roots can get damaged easier, .

    This wont harm them at all unless you rip a TON of root. They can take it :).

    Ok i reread what you said .

    Yes if your planing on dirt or coco then having a huge rootball probaly isnt the best for transplanting ;)

    Thanks for the info.. I’m transplanting into 6” Rockwool cubes. There will be a fair amount of roots but I’ll just try and place them as best I can..

    If it where me and i had a big ball of roots you can trim them off and shell regrow em in no time.

    I figured better to regrow new roots then wad up a ball that might cause issues might not :)

    Wont hurt younger clones at all

    She'll be right mate, just twist your clone into the hole and the roots will sit down nicely in there, all good.

    At 78 degrees you don’t have a lot of time, your gonna have issues at those temps IMO.

    Absolutely. .......it's better to get clones out as soon as their ready and into their desired medium. ........I don't like to let them go much further this although I have done several time's and payed the penalty for it with Brown roots and mushy clones.....

    If you could lower the res temp then you could go a lot longer IMO and change the name from cloner to grower lol.

    I totally hear you.. I’ve got the cloner on a 15min on 45min off cycle now to try and lower the temps slightly. I really don’t have a choice at the moment though so I’m hoping that another four days will be ok.. They’re looking good at this stage so hopefully things don’t change.

    I usually try to get the clones in their growing medium as soon as they are ready... Sure, you can grow two foot long roots in your cloner but, it complicates moving the plant to the growing medium. An inch or two of strong roots give the clone an excellent start in the growing medium without risking root rot... (White good/Yellow bad) Best of Luck!

    They look good but things can change very quickly, way faster than the fix. I’ve been there and yup it sucks :(

    I transplanted some of them out into soil quick.. I needed to get some new Moms going anyway. If the rest are looking dodgy when I get back I’ll just start a new batch. At least I know my cloner works now..:wink: I’ll just lose a bit of time which isn’t that big a deal. Hoping for the best though.
