Looks good.  Depending on what lights your running for it you're going to want to get them pretty dang close.  You usually want to clone with floro lights.  And have the light 3-5" away.  If it's under HID's keep them a minimum of 4 feet away if it's over 600 watts.

It'll be fine!  Keep the humidity high with good airflow and don't touch it and it'll be fine!  I've had tons of clones flop over like that after you cut them, but they ALL root in the end.

yeah, I always used to get discouraged when they fell over and I'd throw them out. but then i kinda just ignored one and it rooted without me even noticing. now I have like ninety percent success. just get past that initial shock and you're good.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

What's the humidity like?? You need to make sure that it's at least 80% humidity.

Embolisms usually don't throw up that early.  And did you not cut it under water??

I've never gotten an embolism after hundreds of clones cut, and I've also never cut underwater. I don't think it's that common.

I've also taken clones, dipped in hormones and then put them in a bucket of water to drive 1.5 hours home before throwing them in the cloner. Droopy as shit and had 33 out of 35 root and survive.

That bottle the clone is in, put the lid on it and you'll be fine. Also maybe put a washcloth or papertowel in there and soak it with water to keep the humidity high.

Eh, I know they're not common.  But I say why risk it at all.  When ya take 50 clones at a time and then only select the best rooting 6, you want to eliminate all possibilities.  It'd suck to lose a sixth of your crop.


But again yes I know they're rare.

My bad, sort of a quick-reply fail on my part there.

Why would you ever cut 50 clones and then throw 44 of them away?

Want the best of the best.  It costs like .10 cents a clone IF that.  Make sure that the 6 plants I do grow are the best that I can get.

And I usually find homes for at least 15 of the ones I don't want.  But yes I just throw quite a few of em out.
