How To Clone MMJ (aeroponic style)

There are many ways to clone plants.  For me, this method proved to be easiest and most successful (100% success rate!). 

What you will need:

an 'Easy Cloner' areoponic cloner (home-made or store bought)
Sharp clippers
Rubbing alcohol & paper towel
Cloning gel (I use RooTech)
Healthy plant

Step 1:  Prepare your water in your cloner.  Add hormones (Super Thrive) then Check and balance your PH so it's somewhere between 5.5-6.5 (I balance mine to 5.8).

Step 2:  Sterilize your clippers using the rubbing alcohol and paper towel.  This is important so you don't spread fungus or disease you may not even know is there.

Step 3:  Pick a healthy branch and cut it at a 45* angle at least 3 nodes down from the top.

Step 4:  Trim the bottom leaves. Shave the skin down on the bottom of the stalk without shaving it completely off.  You want to create a ledge for the cloning gel to sit in.

Step 5:  Dip the end in the cloning gel at least 1/2 an inch and place in in your neoprene and then in your cloner.

Step 6:  Wait for roots.  Be sure to check the PH often and adjust if any problems.  You should start seeing some real root action within 5 days.  I've seen it in as little as 2!  Because the clippings are not in a humidity dome, it's perfectly ok to mist them a couple times a day with plain water or even with Super Thrive as a foliar.

  1. The MMP goes on to speak regarding all the criminal statutes that qualified patients and first caregivers area unit exempt from. In section 11362.765, it says: "shall not be subject, on it sole basis, to criminal liability below Section 11357, 11358, 11359, 11360, 11366, 11366.5, or 11570."If you want to read more about Cannabis Stores in seattle then click here to continue.
