Hi CreX.  

I primarily only clone with tops due to the mainline that I run. No special process and close to 100% rooting success rate.

I cut the tops and keep them in water for a couple of minutes till I am done with the one plant. I then use Dynaroot rooting powder and dip the stem in it. (My rooting powder is also probably 6 to 7 years old) Then over to peat cubes. 

I do remove quite a lot of leaves and any nodes that are above the cut so as to allow for a smaller leaf foot print. If the stem is relatively big the rooting might just take a little bit longer.

The Twisted Helix cut that I gave @PsyCLown was a top cutting. 

Thanks man, i generally do exactly that, down to sitting in water and using 6 year old dynaroot LOL, i find the hollow stems of the tops often lead to the stem going soggy from some bacterial infection or something, so i add a few drops of h2o2 to my cup of water that they sit in for a few min... that seems to make a good difference, but its not fool proof.

The RH in the dome plays a big role. I followed your advise of lowering it by leaving the lid slightly ajar as my dome doesn't have any vents. 

When I used this process the rooting success ratio moved from the odd 90% to 100%

The tops that I clone with are also relatively small reaching about 10 to 15 cm. With about one to two nodes above the cut that I fully remove with only the top tip remaining and those fan leaves at the tip getting a proper trim down. I also don't really mist or spray my dome too much within that 2 week period probably only about 4 to 6 times after the first initial spray down.

Happy cloning my friend and hoping this little bit of input can help you knock those top cuttings out of the park

If you keep the dome closed or unventilated, your clones dont need roots, they get what they need from the air, as it so moist.

You can close it off in the first 24h and then slowly open or vent, more and more, so they seek food. 

Making roots 

I use old Dynaroot, and have 100% rate, and also not to leave them in water for long, just dip and go...

And the Lemon OG Haze 1 September, still in week 4. Getting 1ml Fish-Mix/Grow per liter and 2ml Amino Boost per 10 liter.

Will Mainline the batch to 16 mains on each plant and attack the 1 KG dry per square meter (450 watts on a 1.2x1.2)... and as ambitious as I am.. I want to reach 1.5KG 😁

Getting the sap out of the leaves is the biggest mission. 😁 Rest rather simple. JetFuel is at 11.5%, Slurricane 10.5%. Have to raise that. My Gelato is at 15% 😄 no complains here

The Lemon OG Haze

No1 died after the second training snips, no clue why, roots and all looked rather developed

Rest is fine and most are on 8 mains so far, rest follows tomorrow. Thursday the first should go 16, then I start sorting and pot up to a 10L pot and install a screen for each. Not going 22L this time, check the outcome in pots I use for Autos usually.

Cones from Plant 5 and 6 already rooted very strong... i always have some nice and fast rooters.. and the rest just needs those 2 weeks. No idea why.. and I seem not to be able to figure out what i do right and wrong. Perhaps genetic.. will check that on a second batch of clones I take from the clones. If 5 and 6 root again super fast, that could solve my puzzle.

Sorry ^^ Puppies.. amazing how much they can keep you busy.. OK.. and played some New World with friends.. but the Lemon OG Haze went on growing ^^

The 12 plants are on a 1x1 area.. please ignore the Slurricane, is just parked at the side (1.2x1.2 tray) as I have no room in my dark area. Will move in 3 days and doesn't count towards the result in any way 😁 Lemon OG Haze are all mainlined to 16 main colas.. the outside ones just had other ideas about growing speed.. still middle flowering. All need support to keep standing.

My Gelato (Orange Sherbet (Auto) & Thin Mint Cookie (Photo)) is after 6 weeks more or less done, fading hard. Haze I have set for first week December.
