ideas for moving clones from daisycloner

  1. hello GC, I have 8 clones that now have roots in a botanicare daisy cloner. I'm trying to figure out the best way to transfer them into hydroton to veg more. 2 of the 8 are in little net cups with hydroton, but the other 6 are just in the neoprene hanging down.

    do i just transfer them gently into the hydroton? if so, how do i keep them from tipping over? sugggestions?

  2. Yup - take them out of the neoprene and into the hydroton.
    Place the base of the clone GENTLY on the bottom of the net-pot and back-fill with the hydro.
    If you are using decent sized pots (like 4") you should not have any issue with tip over.
    That's one of the reasons why I like Sure-2-Grow .. very snug fit in the net-pot and no tippy.
  3. thanks Raoul, that's what I'll do. I'm wondering how long I should wait before transplanting them? should I wait until there are substantial roots? They've been in the daisy cloner about 10 days now.
  4. I took a bud back to rooting via a bubble cloner - took 11 days for it to push a root and another 16 days to exit the Sure-2-Grow block and drop into the water.

    I run a 5 gal Bubble Bucket and keep the solution level at the bottom of the net-pot until I drop a root then lower the solution to 1" or so below the bottom of the pot. Level is really not that critical .. 90% of the root is in solution as it is and the bubblers keep the sir space above the solution at about 100% saturation.
