Underground brings a mound of high quality marijuana to the table - in a considerably short amount of time. Both aromatic and flavoursome, this sultry Sativa does not hold back, inducing a high of cerebral splendour and plentiful yields in as little as 7-8 weeks of flowering time. Lovers of the original Melon Gum hold on to your hats, because Dr.
Underground have now released a feminized autoflowering version of the extra sweet specimen. Auto Melon Gum sticks very close to the original formula that made her so popular, however this time round she's far easier to grow and a great deal speeder too. Underground takes the unbridled power of their flagship King Kong strain, and repacks it into an easy and convenient autoflowering beauty. The result is a lightning quick, high yielding legend that is accessible to growers of all skills. Hey everybody, it’s Mr Green here from www.GrowBCBud.com with some free advice about making cannabis cloning as easy and quick as possible. Today you’ll learn how to clone your marijuana plants successfully every time! I’ve been growing marijuana on a large scale since 1990 and have made thousands of clones over the years. The following is my best advice to get your clones rooted fast, in just 7-10 days.
Cloning Tray (with ridges at the bottom, no holes) & 7” Vented Dome Razor Blade or Exacto Knife & Scissors Cloning Gel and Cloning Powder Note: Any brand rooting powder and gel will work for cloning 2 small plastic buckets (or large mixing bowls – to be filled with water) Spray Bottle/Mister “Jiffy 7” Compressed Peat Pellets (Recommended) Note: Rockwool Cubes and Rapid Rooters can be substituted Grow Lights: Fluorescent Lights or Metal Halide lights (250w, 400w or 600w) seem to work best for cloning, however any quality grow light can be used. To begin we will fill one of the small buckets with warm water. Put the other bucket aside for now, as we will use it in a moment. Next, we soak the Jiffy 7 compressed peat pellets in the warm water, which makes the pellets expand in size, as pictured below. Once the compressed Jiffy 7 peat pellets have expanded in warm water, we remove them one at a time. Gently squeeze excess water from each pellet before placing in cloning tray. Once the cloning tray is filled with expanded warm wet Jiffy pellets, we are ready to begin cutting our cannabis clones. When cutting clones from a mother plant it is better to cut a large section of a branch with multiple branches and bud sites. A small clone may take a week or two before multiple branches appear. This photo shows the difference between a small cannabis clone vs a big clone. You will get faster growing and more vibrant plants by choosing big clones! Using a new razor blade, cut the branch of the mother plant at a 45-degree angle. Place the new cutting in the small bucket of cold water you just prepared. The stem of the cut branch will absorb some water while soaking. This prevents air bubbles from getting trapped in the stem. If your cutting has large fan leaves you should cut the blades of the leaves shorter to fit in the cloning tray. This way the fan leaves will still remain and speed up the growth of the new cannabis clone. Once you have all the branches cut and soaked we are ready to dip the tip of each of the cuttings (soon to be clones) into the rooting gel. Dipping the clone in gel first will protect the stem from getting clogged. After the clone is dipped in rooting gel we will dip the tip into the rooting powder. This method is what I call “Double Dipping the Clones”. I do this because some strains root better in gel, while others root better with rooting powder. This way each clone will always root no matter what. Any brand rooting powder and gel will work for cloning.
After the clone has been double-dipped, you will insert the cutting into the Jiffy 7 peat pellet.
Gently press the peat in the Jiffy 7 around the base of the stem to ensure a snug fit and to ensure contact of the peat with the stem. We don’t want the stem loose or falling out of the peat. Note if you’re using Rockwool: Rockwool cubes usually have a small hole for the clone to be inserted.
