What is the best way to clone? I have just cut a northern light clone and put it directly in water, how long should I leave it in there, till it roots then transplant to soil using clonex gel?

the easiest and most simple way to clone for me was an aero cloner.


Cut the clone, dip in hormone, suspend it in the bucket. then you dont do anything till there is roots

aerocloners are by far the best and most affordable option. You can build one for around $40, then it only takes a few pennies per time.

I use what is called the "scrape technique" and just add about 1ml/gal of Superthrive (its IBA-the rooting hormone and B vitamins) or other IBA containing product. Hella roots in 3-12 days, depending on the daily/nightly temps.

i made my own, it looks exactly like that but its 2 gallon version.

I use cutting edge micro and bloom, about 2.5ml-5ml per gallon. i get roots in about 5-12 days.

don't put any nutrients in the water. Not until the roots have already started to grow. Even then, I like to transplant early like when shown.

I go into coco using the 1L Airpots. those 1L 'aircells' as they call them, are amazing, and probably one of the best investments you can make for young plants. They way they are setup allows them to transplant very very well, lots of root tips just waiting to go, not swirled at the bottom, but dozens of points sticking out.

The larger airpots might not be worth it, compared to bags (but they're rigid and work very well), but the 1L are worth the $2.50.

these here in the front:

Definitely like the idea of those one liter air pots. I might get some of those.

Why no nutrients before roots? I only have 8 plugs and I don't do all 8 at once. Ill take a couple here and a couple there with a few days to a week apart at least. Would I just be running plain water the whole time then?

Mine never bush out like that its always just one long search root that eventually branches out. But I hate that because I have had then break off before.

Nutrients just tend to cause problems before it roots. They don't need salts/nutrition--they cant absorb any, they need rooting hormone. You could run plain water, and I've had decent results with just that, but if you keep it simple with a little IBA based product you can have it last a few weeks(months) without having to change the water. Depends on how your stuff looks after awhile, but if it feels/smells like normal water then i'll leave it.

Do you scrape at all? take a fresh razor and drag is sideways down the bottom ~inch of the stem in 2-3 spots to take the outermost layer of cells off.

I have the 15 minute interval timer, so I do 15/30 on/off, sometimes 15/15, but it depends on the time of year, if its getting too warm/cold, I'll let the pump run more/less often to keep the temperature. Not sure of the exact temp of the water, but its lukewarm when it's working the best. I have a seedling heat mat taped around it for the winter.

That 5 gallon bucket with 13 sites can take around 50 clones. You can put 3-4 cuts into one collar, they have the t shape, then just don't let the roots get tangled up, its why I'm transplanting when they first show up like that, but also once they get to that point they take to the coco/aircells well.

If they are getting nutrients and water without the roots forming new roots will be slow cause the plant will be focusing on growing vegitive growth since it's able to meet it's needs without the roots.

Even though both done with a aero cloner this is with no gel


This is with gel even though they were only in it for a few seconds

Surprised to hear people say aero cloners are "cheapest" or "simplest".  I can't think of a more expensive or complicated way to clone. 

My favorite way to clone:

-Go to the grocery store and buy a cake.
-Go home and eat the cake.
-Cut clones, dip in water, dip in clone powder and put in damp soil.
-Put clone trays in plastic cake dome.
-Put cake dome in the veg room.
-10-20 days later, clones are rooted.

I submit that that method is cheaper, simpler and tastier than an aerocloner!

That being said...aerocloners are pretty neat and effective and probably a better way to go overall.  :smile:

Okay that makes sense. Well being that I have clones going in and out of the bucket all the time should I just do plain RO water and dip all the cuttings and scrape them before dipping?

I wouldn't mind doing plain water if its as effective as using nutes. Because it seems like I would have slow roots all the time then if I'm using the nutes full time.

if your IBA is in the water then you wont need to dip, just scrape and put in while the pump is running, they will get the stuff. gel might be easier to dip first if thats what you have.

I know this thread is about clones but i just wanna second that those airpots, although pricey, are the shit!

Theyre supposed to be the equivalent of a container 3x the size since the roots dont circle. The 1L is supposed to be the same as a regular 3L.

And i believe it cuz i got some HUGE plants out of those tiny lil 1Ls...sorta bitch to water though i had to bottom water and soak em. But they work awesome.

The results that you get in just a few days, and the explosion of roots makes your plants grow and take much faster. Using most other methods will allow you to save money on materials/up front costs, but if you value the way the plants take root, it is the best for the price. I have only seen mediocre root growth, usually just one or two out of the root cubes or soil at first, it takes an extra few weeks for those plants to catch up. Try counting the roots that you get out of the aerocloner, its almost impossible sometimes.


You eliminate the uncertainty of rooting, no question of weather its rooting or not. I've gone weeks only to find that they are just sitting in the cube/soil not doing shit.

You get more bang for your buck with an aerocloner.

I'm not sure what IBN is but I just ran out of nutrients. I was going to buy more cutting edge micro and bloom.

If I scrape the stem and use rooting hormone am I good with just running RO water 24/7? Keep n mind I have cuttings going in and it of the bucket every few days to a week, so they are constantly changing individually not all at once.

I'll agree with some of this. Now as far as cost the aero cloner is gonna win that cause once past he cost of buying or making one you can get away with just plain water if you want. As far as easier it wins there also.  No domes just plug and play so to say.

Now as far as faster and better rooting I have to disagree. Not seeing rooting as fast as a aero cloner or as much rooting then you need to modify your tech.

This is what rooted cubes should look like within three weeks of taking the clone.

IBA is the rooting hormone most common to those rooting products. You can use RO water and whichever root stimulator you can find. You can sometimes find it as low as $5 for powder at many garden sections of stores. I use Superthrive (IBA and B vitamins) because I had it around, but its pretty cheap and works very well, better than Olivia's cloning gel, the $10 bottle has lasted me a few years. They also make a $5 bottle of it. It also holds up well in the water for a few weeks. As for running 24/7, I find that the pump heats the water too much. The 15 minute interval timer works to control heat, and it seems to work better with a wet/dry cycle.

Some useless information:

Would you say the results are equal if I use root hormone gel/powder and RO water vs nutrients in the water? By running 24/7 I meant that I either have to run plain water or nutrient water but not both since I change all the time.
