owner of a RainForest with 72 buckets, I'm happy.
I have 2 strains (LSD & Acapulco Gold from Barney's) and I'm going from cuttings to planting the clones in around 15 days.
Usually, the first roots will show in 10 days, and after 5 more days they are long enough to transplant.
If there are no roots after 5 days more, I usually throw all the cuttings left (approx. 10% of all) to the trashbin.
Here's my way of doing it: cutting at 45°, scratching a portion of the stem and right into the bucket.
I use some Hesi Root Complex in a 0.8EC water at 6 Ph.
The water is at 25°C 12 hours a day, around 19°C during the night. But the lights are on 24/24.
For the details, I've been rooting flowered cuttings with no difference, so I have (yeah I know I fucked up big time) 5 mothers in flowering>back to veg mode.
So when the roots are there, my new clones are going straight into 12/12 with already some top bud.
I wonder if you could recommend some improvements to get roots faster?
What say you?
Oh. Almost forgot: wishing you the best with your grows!
