I have Rooting hormone, and rockwool cubes and I'd like to be able to clone this plant of mine when it gets a bit more mature. The plant is planted in the ground, not in a pot. Has anyone ever cloned a plant outside in the ground? If this is even possible a step by step analysis would be greatly appreciated.

dont matter where your growing.
as soon as a plant shows sex you can clone it .
it takes skill though. my first attempt failed.
i used powder rooting hormone.
dipped a branch that was cut at a angle inside the hormone.
placed it inside a solo cup with starter soil.
cut the fan leaves a little. and sprayed the plant every day with a mister.

two weeks went by. the plant turned somewhat brown on most leaves.
i took it out and NO ROOTS.
so i gave up on cloning all together.

No reason why you can´t TAKE clones from a plant growing in the ground. But I would put them under a CFL indoors for rooting. Seedlings can take full sun from day one - but I find the sun is too fierce for clones.

I really didn't want to bring them indoors but I guess I'll try both ways.
