Cloning marijuana mother plants requires special nutrients and water for clones to root and grow healthy. Knowing how to cut the clone is the first step. Once you take the clone or cutting, you need to make sure the clone is placed in cloning solution prior to placing it into rockwool or a clone machine.
Nutrients and water for clones to root healthy
Watering or feeding marijuana clones or cutting is the most important thing to know when growing mother plants for clones. If you over water or do not water enough, the clones will not root and will die. Knowing what PH levels the water should be at and what nutrients to add to the water is also very important. Once you know the ph levels and nutrients needed for healthy clones to root, you know need to know the feeding schedule to be set on a digital timer.
Nutrients and Water for clones feeding schedule
When feeding your clones, you want to feed them nutrients and water for 30 minutes every 6 hours. So, set your digital timer to come on for 30 mins at 12pm, 6pm, 12am, 6am. Make sure you always use an air stone in the nutrient reservoir and leave the air stone on to aerate the water for 24 hours a day. I always use rockwool formula one (part a&b) as my nutrients to feed my clones. I mix 3 cap fulls of each and add it to the water that has a ph level of 6.0. Once the solution is mixed, simply fill the clone machine with the water, plug into your timer and continue to drain, flush and refill every 5 days with new clean nutrients and water for clones to live a healthy life.
