At the time, I was using tap water from our well (1,000 feet/300 meters deep), which was very cannabis friendly containing calcium, iron, zinc, mg, etc. that came out to 170 - 200 ppm from the tap. Also contained almost zero bacteria. So I used no nutrients or additives at all.
I changed the water and cleaned the equipment every clone batch. Then start again, in a perpetual process to offer clones to my community.
Many years ago on OG, we were all looking for that magical simple cloning technique that would result in 100% every time. The powders and gels were starting to surface. Soil and Hydro techniques were being constantly tested. How its cut, scarification, dome - no dome, cutting leaf tips...etc
However in the end, across the board, an aero cloner was the way to go. Anybody and everybody back then could now clone on OG, with the affordability and accessibility of the equipment (you can pick everything up at wal-mart cheap).
I want to say, this is the way I clone. In no way am I saying that other methods will not work or are bad. I just prefer this one
