I usually clone in aero cloners, but didn't want to use the electric and a 36 site cloner for just six clones. I also usually use rapid rooters if I use a clone dome, but I ran out awhile back and had these rock wool cubes laying around. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how good the clones root in rock wool, being that I had never used it before. I usually germinate seeds in a solo cup with pro-mix, under a 400w mh and get 90-95% success rate. But recently I've been using rapid rooters and a clone dome to germ seeds and have been having 100% success. I saw subcool do it on the weed nerd and thought I would give it a try, and now I can germ a lot more seeds in a smaller area and use less water, with better success. I grow in Pro-mix HP, with Advanced Nutrients. Please no negative comments on the nutrients I use, I know they are more expensive than others, but I get a rally good deal on them off eBay. For this entire grow supplies usually cost $500-$600 per cycle, which I think is pretty good. And I've been using Advanced for a long time and am happy with the results and very set in my ways and comfortable with the nutes. I don't get extremely high yields or anything, I usually pull 1 1/2 lbs per 1000w of light, and I'm more than happy with that. I do a lot of topping and lollipopping. I don't run Co2 at this site yet, but will soon. I've just been using the Co2 bags n pads, they work well enough, obviously not as good as a regulated tank. Most of the ladies in the flower area are in 5 gal pots but a few are in 3 gals. I keep all the plants in veg in 1 gals and keep topping them so they stay short until there is room in the flower area, then I transplant and give them a week to get accustomed to their new pots before I switch to 12/12. So instead of a 2 month turnover, it's more like 9-10 weeks. I really don't like growing anything that's more than a 60-70 day flower, but prefer more like 50-60 day plants.
