Like p_snick says, I have read time and ago to forgo all the gels, powders, cloning machines, etc, and put them in a well aerated, good, potting soil, peat cubes, etc. Give them some light and the moisture and I have been hearing more and more success stories. This is from the giants of the organic GC grow arena.

Don't let the hype make you spend a lot of money on all the institutional methods advertised by the hydro companies. Give p_snicks idea a try.

75% organic EWC, 25% organic Sphagnum peat moss and wetted down with a kelp meal tea (or soluble seaweed extract).

12 - 14 days = massive roots in a Solo 18 oz. cup.

no vermiculite? or some other aeration amendment? I'll have to try that next time...running out of peat pucks

Do you add any myco to this mixture? or do you wait to inoculate the roots at transplant?

Since the OP asked about 'organic' I didn't list the gel that I've use for inoculating the potential root zone with endomycorrhizal fungi. It's a carboxymethyl cellulose based product that when mixed with water is very thick and viscous.

I add the endomycorrhizal strains into the gel along with humic/fulvic acid, soluble seaweed extract with liquid silica treated water as the base of the gel. The cellulose product comes as a dry powder so the water that you add to activate it can contain the kelp meal tea, humic and fulvic acids as well as the liquid silica.

100% guaranteed results - consistently. Always. Ever. Never fails.

Cloning is easy as pie

the trick is picking out good branches to clone...something i'm still working on myself

I'm gonna assume that you dip the cutting in this mixture, rather than using a syringe?

Organic Honey works quite well as a rooting compound for clones.

And also, If using peat pods, soak the medium in a 1/4 strength nutrient compound before cloning.

Happy Growing :)
