    No problem man....I thought it was cool cause normally it took me 3-4 weeks to get roots and here you an get roots in a week and 100% sucess rate .....just make sure you clean the water and container inbetween clone cycles with a bleach water mix incuding the nozzels and water lines:thumbsup:

    They sell these on ebay too...under clone machine...but you can make these for litterly $30-40

    I guess the question is always around to build or buy. In this case, I picked up a 18 site Clone Bucket at the local hydro store for $80. I figured the time to run around getting parts and cutting 18 2" holes in the top of something was worth the buy..

    As far as keeping the water at the optimal temperature, I just set the bucket on my seedling heat mat and attached the temp sensor to the side with the suction cup.

    Peace, Farmer Rich

    Hey Farmer Rich and VapedG13,

    Nice DIY and nice bucket cloners.

    If you'd like to speed up your propagation more, try using willow water in them. It contains a natural hormone that promotes root growth and makes even stubborn cuttings want to grow roots. (maybe even root fan leaves, shhh)

    Nice, yea I have seen this how to guide before, it is solid. There is another one at DIYMarijuana.com. There are also plans for a DWC cloner and some other hydroponic systems.
