How do you cut perfect clones?
Do clones need light or dark?
Clones need plenty of light to root and grow, but that light needs to be less intense than what you’ll use once it’s transplanted. T5 and CFL grow lights can offer your clones the vegging (blue) spectrum they need without the intensity that could take it out.
Can you put clones straight into soil?
Yes mate, that’s how most growers take clones. Keep the soil moist and spray the clones once a day and they should begin growing roots in a couple of weeks.
Should you trim clones?
Cutting leaf tips reduces rooting success rate and having three leaves on the clone results in higher root quality than clones with just two leaves. So if you want your clones to develop many roots quickly, take cutting from either the top or bottom of the mother plant that have at least 3 full leaves.
