Update on treated and untreated Tiger Jack clones.
As one who has never mastered the art of cloning cannabis, less than half of clones I attempt succeed.
Most of the ones I do succeed with take upwards of 21 days before I see roots. I looked at plenty of techniques from many different sites and tried aerocloning, 4 different types of rooting hormones, willow branch tea, perlite, vermiculite, combos of both, rooter plugs, coco and plain water with equal non success.
Since some contributors of whom I've read set the bar at clones showing nubs in three days, that would my idea and criteria for a superior method.
So I doubled that time anyway and decided that a week would be just as acceptable as a second best method, I decided to take a peek.
Here are the treated and control clones. Treated on left.
^^^ The treated clone looks more lively against the somewhat shriveled control. The control was clipped soon after snipping as it was wilting.
Removed from the media, neither clipping shows any root development.
Upon magnification the white flecks seen below are just perlite stuck on the surface and washed off, sorry no pics.
Without a definite advantage shown by the EFG and still wanting those clips to succeed, I have scraped both clips, applied rooting hormone and replanted in the same containers.
Now this has never worked for me before but I have more optimism than good sense and they still look healthy enough to try this again. (Didn't use the lube as a binder, just dusted with the brushes)
GrowingHigher's link Chapter 11 mentions brief exposure to the electrostatic field producing results yet the cutting seemed to thrive in it, I fully expected some root development.
I consider this test a fail.
So now on to the fresh seed side by side test...
