Cloning questions
    #605062 - 01/13/12 01:54 AM (5 years, 9 days ago)

I bought a bunch of cloning supplies that im not sure how to use. Surprisingly, I couldnt find clear instructions on how to use them.
I have:
Lots of black rapid rooter plugs
4 50 site cloning trays w/ domes
A heat mat that fits all 4 trays
Clonex coning solution

I cloned b4, but I just put them in 4" pots w/ 50/50 perlite/verm and I used cloning gel. Is it even possible to use the solution (liquid in a bottle) w/ the plugs?

The plugs seem much wider then the square holes(doesnt seem like they'll fit) is this normal?

How exactly do I use the plugs?
How long should I soak for? How? What kind of water? How much water do I put in the tray? How deep do I stick the clone in the foam?

So answer your question, those plugs and not designed to fit in that tray.  The tray you bought was designed for rockwool cubes.


I would suggest taking the tray out of your domes and lining the bottom of whats left of your humidity dome with perlite.  Get the perlite good and damp and places your rapid rooter plugs on top of that.


On further reading it sounds like you bought foam plugs???  Or is it the organic material that seems foamish??

Addendum,


Just dip the clones in the clonex solution before you put them in the plugs, so yes you can use it with the plugs.  If there aren't any holes for the clone to go into just make one with a nail. 


Soak the plugs for about 12-24 hours in pH balanced water before you place clones in the plug.

Thanks a lot! Thats great news, that bottle will prolly last forever :bow2:

ill get some perlite asap...prolly gonna use some of the trays as terrariums for mush too:)

im still not 100% sure on 2 things tho:
  When soaking the plugs, do I need to weight them down so they stay under water? They float
   
  How deep should the tip of the clone be in the plug? Halfwayish?

Halfway sounds good on the clone.  Since their plugs I believe you dont even have to soak thme for as long as I was saying.  I was thinking rockwool cubes.  Just squeeze them in water that pH balanced.
