Hello CK i hope you are well.
When i moved them out of the propagator tray into the net pots to go in the bubble cloner all the compost fell off so it was easy to see the root formation which there was very little of.
They have been in the bubbler for a couple of days now and on some they have about two inches of roots hanging out of the net pots
From what i have seen they seem to be very good because if a numbty noob like me can get good results anyone can.
DWC looks so easy and the results look very impressive but the results i have seen have come from experianced growers so i might completely balls it up.
Cannot wait to get my new grow area and tent set up as the conditions they are in at the moment are far from ideal and i am surprised they have even managed to survive at all.
Have a good bank holiday weekend CK and i hope everything is growing well with you.
Live and let live

good thanks kph, pleased to hear you've got things sorted,
im going to make a bubble cloner for my next batch mate
it sounds quicker and cheaper in the long run saves on coco/soil etc
just always stuck em in the medium and they usualy root,
but they can be slow rooting somtimes and if theres an easy'r way,
smokers usualy find it

Hello CK i just thought i would put up a few pictures of the root development after 3 and a half days in the bubble cloner.
Before they went in the cloner there was only the start of the rooting process and they were literally about 5mm long and today there is about 4-5 inches hanging out of the 50mm net pot.
I was just holding them back trying to root them in soil but they all now have a desent root system developing.
Less than 20 quid for pump,air stone and bucket and less than 10 minutes to set up you can't go wrong.
You have a good weekend.

Hello all.
Heres a few photos of the two mothers i have and also the root development on the clones in the bubble cloner.I have replaced a few of the cuttings in the cloner with what i considered to be better clones so obviously they are way behind the others which seem to be doing really well.
The one that has been topped twice

The short arse that has been topped once

The root development on the clones.

The clones which are coming along nicely.


I was toying with the idea of flowering one of the mothers but which one do you guys think?
The one in the first photo has been topped twice and the second has been topped once and the second one has always been a slow and very compact plant were as the other if i had not topped it twice would easilly be over a foot taller than its sister.
All advice is much appreciated.
All have a good day.

they look great kph, you've got me thinking now about bubble cloning, the first plant looks like it would be a fine candidate for flowering nice bushy shape even growth good luck with what ever you choose

Hello Sickle i hope you are well.
As a noob and this being my first grow the mothers have suffered some abuse at my hands but they have managed to survive.
To be honest i was considering flowering the smaller more compact of the two as i want to keep a mother for clones and is it right that the clones i take from a slow growing mother will also tend to be slow growing?
But as i know very little and you are far more experienced i will take your advice and if i keep the smallest as a mother at least she will not take up valuable space.
I have been working hard at trying to finish my new grow space and get the tent up and get something into 12/12 but as you know sometimes there just aren't enough hours in the day.
Thanks for the advice as always it is much appreciated.
You have a good evening.

Hello all i hope everyone is hunky dory.
Eventually got my new grow space with tent setup after probably 40 hours worth of work.
Got the veg area setup then when i was setting up the 2 dwc and a soil grown plant that i intend to flower i snapped two of the upper branches training the soil one so done a quick fix with a cable tie.
Has anyone any experience of trying to fix a damaged plant?how long should i leave the tie on for?
All have a good evening.

Hey,

Have a good holiday :), don't worry it'll be warm again before the summers out, and the plants will like the extra fresh air they are getting :)_
