Indeed, that is what matters. Plants have notoriously low brand respect. If it works they like it, if it does not they do not, even if it has a nice name on the side ;)

 

The shop bought one has a little lip at the bottom of the cutout that the neoprene disc can sit on.

Just wanted to thank you for this. I'm being gifted a cutting and now I feel far more confident in what i'm doing.

I know this thread is based aroundthe method. But can anyone point me in the right direction or give any advice on when in a plants life cycle its best to take cuttings? Timings will mean that when i want to take cuttings my plants be a few weeks into flower? Would that be ok to do it then? I know this is stress for a plant but spread out over a few plants will only be taking a 1 maybe 2 cuts from each? Thanks in advance.

I have recently taken many successful clone cuttings from my flowering plants (a month into flowering)

 

I did this to be double sure I had the correct mother I wanted and removing lower growth which is small useless bud. 

 

I used them as the cuttings

 

and they rooted within 10 days under a 125 wat cfl (jiffy’s and cheap properators from Asda)

 

I go as for as low cut cut as I can, at least couple inches of stem on there, leave the bud as it is don’t rip it off, add the clonex gel and jiffy + propergator

Thanks @THEDANK appreciate it. I just though that they might grow already in flower if they where taken off at that point.

I now just put my cuttings into cups of plain water. Not even a heated propagator but the CFL light keeps a small space warm.

 

I usually put clonex on the cut clone, place in rockwool cube (cut myself) and then into a pot of soil. Heated propagator broke but I'm not losing any clones without previous method so its cashback for me.

 

Took some cuttings off a plant 5 weeks into flower. If that fails I'll re-veg the plant as its one that I first disliked but now realise its quite powerful and the yield a lot better with clone than from the original seed female.

 

Another variety 4 weeks into flower has rooted well in the water.

You are correct, if you take cuttings from plants 2 weeks into flower they will root ok but will take around 4 weeks to reveg  , you can take cuttings when you flip the lights and put them in the fridge for a few weeks until you need them :yep:
