From Clone Babies to Plants

Thursday, May 8th, 2008

The clones which were planted into small pots in Early April are now ready to be potted on into bigger pots. As you can see from these Pictures

they are 15-20cm in height and have good root balls.

The next stage is to pot them on into bigger pots using the same soil, which encourages good root growth.

This is the size pot we use for this stage:

It took these Fatty Cola clones 3 weeks under the florescent lights to mature enough to be potted on.

Getting Clones Ready

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

Here are some clones of Fatty Cola taken a couple of days ago. They are in rockwool cubes and placed in a box on a layer of perlite. They are under a 150 watt bulb - actually we use an energy saver bulb as that gives no heat - and kept moist. See the cloning page for details on how to clone.

And here are some clones that have been potted on. It took 3 weeks for good roots to form, then they were potted into small pots in Compo Sana soil which contains root enhancer.

They are under florescent lights full time and watered daily. As the roots develop, and depending on how warm it is, they may need to be watered twice a day.
