    Im coming up on 2 weeks this saturday of flowering. It appears that I may only have 1 female out 9 plants, which is kind of disappointing. I was wondering if I could take a couple trimmings off the female and make clones, but is it too late now that its 2 weeks in.

    I can see the white pistols, they're maybe 1cm long.

    Could I make the clones and switch back to 18/6 and veg? Or just finish this grow?
     
  2. What's your time frame? If you're not on a strict schedule, just bright her back into veg. It'll take awhile (2-4 weeks, some strains are finicky), but it's worth it. Take a cutting or two immediately just to see if it's not too late, but yeah, bring her back into veg.

    Sorry about your bad coin-flip, man.
     
  3. Nah I don't have a time frame.
    I found a local garden center that has rooting powder. Is that just as good as the gel or no?
     
  4. 2 weeks is fine dont reveg
     

  5. Like do you mean just take the clippings and put them at 18/6 and leave the mother at 12/12?
    This is only my second time growing and my first time doing clones, So I don't know a whole lot.
     
  6. Dont reveg. You can clone her just fine. It will take her longer to root and more attention from you but its totally possible. I take my clones from flowering plants.
     

  7. But I still have to veg the clones right or should I just leave them at 12/12?
    And If I do leave them at 12/12 will they become decent sized plants or are they gonna be little babies with little buds?
     

  8. When I take clones, I put them under a single 26 watt 6500k cfl running 24/0. Once they root and establish in your medium, you will still need to veg them for at least a couple weeks under 24/0 or 18/6 before inducing flowering.
     
  9. If you're going to do it, do it now... Wait much longer and they'll be really difficult to root.

    Yes, now or never.
     
  11. Im gonna do it today, just one more question. lol

    Should I let them sit in water for a day or two, Or dip them in water then into the powder and plant them?
     
  12. This.
     
  13. Ok I did it.
    I dipped them into water for a few minutes and then into the powder.
    I took 3 trimmings; 2 were lower branches and 1 was the top of the plant.
    This is the first time the plant was topped in its life.

    The 2 lower ones look good so far (the leaves aren't drooping)
    The top of the plant is looking very sad and I was wondering should I take off the fan leaves toward the top (the ones that are drooping) or leave them?

  14. This is a clone ,cut from a former seeded Mother (pineapple), that was almost 4 weeks into flowering. It had absolutely no problems reverting back to veg under 18/6 & is now also into 11th day of the 12/12 flowering stage.

  15. Ok well that makes me feel a little bit better :)
    I'll upload some new pics next week to show progress.
     
  16. I was reading a post by Smokey on cloning and it says to place your clone in the dark for 24 hours.
    Im confused I thought I was suppose to put them in 18/6.
    Which do I do?

  18. Ive cloned well into flower....it dont matter man. It will just take longer to establish itself as a knew plant...then into veg and new growth. Just keep budding your plant if harvesting it is what you want to do. I dont havent heard the 24 dark thing....personaly i cut it plug it and put it under cfls asap.... I do however only veg 24 hours a day...i dont understand cheating yourself out of SIX hours of growth
     
  19. I wouldnt cut ANY leaves though....even if they are droopy leave em. The plant needs those...
     
  20. Well by the time I was done trimming and planting the light cycle was just about over. So they went right into darkness. Tomorrow at 6am they will be going 18/6. I did trim the leaves and that seemed to help them. I'll know more in the next few days.
