Ok, I'm doing a new pair of clones taken from the same donors as the other clones I have in Let the Cloning Begin. This time I'm using a dome that I made from two liter Pepsi bottles because I drink Pepsi and they are clear. I put each clone under its own dome and they are on the floor level with some seedlings and the other rooted clones now in cups.
Let's see how these do and how fast they root under this method. I'm using Grodan Rockwool Plant Starter Plugs (round), with Rootech cloning gel. I pre-soaked my plugs with a solution of two liters H2O, 1/2 Tblsp Big Bloom, 1/4 tsp Grow Big. I will use this to wet the plugs in conjunction with regular H2O through the rooting period, and will keep the dome on as long as necessary up to one week.
One clone has a couple of small growth tips that I trimmed from where I was going to apply the gel and split the stem. I placed both of these small cuttings in a cup of water with their stems below the water to see if they will root this way. Better then tossing them in the trash. Just another part of this experiment for some.
