What is the process for taking clones? I bought rapidgrow blue powder, rockwool cubes, a tray and dome, and a heat mat. I know how to take the cuts and get everything set up but don’t quite know how much water I should be giving them. I usually soak the cubes prior to inserting the cut and close the dome for at least 7 days…after that I looked in and all the cubes were one dry so I gave them some water…please help.
I always leave a small layer of water at the bottom of the tray just below the cubes. I do not want the cubes sitting in water. The idea is to keep the humidity levels high without over saturating the plugs. Once I place the cuts in the dome I keep the dome closed for 24-48 hours under a t-5. After that, I open the dome at least once a day to “air out”. I only open the dome for 15-30 sec. Monitor the cubes throughout the week. Make sure they stay moist (but not soaked). After 7-14 days you should start noticing roots coming out of the bottom of the cubes. If it takes longer, be patient some plants take a lot longer to root than others. I keep my t-5 on 24hrs or until I see roots then I will change the light cycle down to 18-6. I hope this has been helpful.
