cloning techinques?

Does any know of any good cloning procedures or a reputable source in which I may follow up further?

Re: cloning techinques?

personally I like to make 2 cuts. First one to remove it from the plant and then the second one I make under water. The second cut I make at a 45 degree angle and after I remove it from the water I dip it in shultz cloning powder (can get at home depot and has worked better then the gels for me. If you can afford a aeroponic cloner go for it otherwise I would say stick the cuttings in some peat mix (the really lightweight stuff) and keep it just moist. Over watering clones is a very common mistake you want medium to be just a little moist. Expect 2-3 weeks before you can transplant. Aeroponics will go much faster but with the peat mix you have a very affordable effective option.
