Testing new things

Recommended Posts

Hey all

 

So I changed my way of cloning or at least looking at other ways to get faster and better rooting. So I jumped on Google and logged onto the hydro store and ordered something.

I read about these and thought why not. It's not that expensive and if it works then it's a win win for me.

They are small and will fit any sized dome for any space I think.

They soaked up the water within 30 seconds

I added some rooting gel to the cart to make things more legit. My rooting powder was old and might have been the fault in my link.

I use eazyplug-plugs and have gotten far better results than with jiffy-pellets or Rock wool. I don't use rooting hormone just straight into the plugs. 

 

In summer I had some root in 6 days now in winter about 12 days

Kept on checking the temps and found its getting hotter than it's supposed to. The temps was reading 28 but I sorted it out and its at 24 now. I raised the dome with the help of a washing pin. According to the manufacturer of these heating mats they will reach a temp of 22C but can reach 30 if using a thermostat. Maybe my thermometer is faulty. I have been meani g to get a new hygrometer but haven't gotten to it yet.

Anyway I will let you know how things turn out in a week or more

I use easy plugs. Took clones last saterday and 11of twelve clones at rooted all ready. Will probability see roots on day 10 or 11. So I give them a gentle pull to see if they are stuck to the plug, if the are stuck you know they are rooted. I spray them with 1ml kelpak and 1ml Explogrow in 500ml rain water. Normally get 95-100% success rate. The other thing people do not tell you is keep your vents of your humidity dome completely open from the start. I find clones root faster this way.e34173251cdcbb119fe8ad09ad09e866.jpg

I will lift dome lid when lights come on. I have heard and read up on explogrow.  Will get some for the grow season. 

 

Thanx for the tip... 😉

I even added 4 extra breather holes along the bottom of my lid to allow more fresh air in.
