Fastest Root Cuttings into Mothers?

I grow quite well - but I'm making renewed efforts to work better.

I did some cuttings the other week and I have 100% success. It's quite rare for me to have a failure.

I have an established routine and equipment which I keep to rigidly.

Should I take particular note of those cuttings that root the fastest?

Would that trait follow if I were to make those fast rooters into mothers and take further cuttings from that in time?

I get that chance has a part to play in my cuttings itself and how I propagate it.

But over time would that chance reduce to leave me with only a strain that naturally roots faster?

tThe fastest has rooted in 5 days. Then There's about 10-12 days for last to root. - if that's any help.

Many thanks

KayDog

I tend to choose a mother from the shape before anything else. I pot them all up, choose the best shaped one then flower the rest to give me an idea of how the grow and flower from clone.

Not too sure root speed is an indication of good mum material.

I'm with GV on this... if you were having problems getting cuttings to root it might be worth searching for a strain that roots readily but it sounds as if you've already cracked the cloning aspect of growing.

@@Billy2Hats - thank you.

So much more than just cracking cloning. I'm going all-in into really dialing in a grow. (I even know where on the propagator not to put a cutting...)

I've done all my fuckery and 'experimenting' - and just doing it Old-Skool like the stalwarts do here. Now it's time for me to learn how to grow properly.

For what it's worth - I'm settling for the Sweet Seeds range. When I manage to totally fubar a strain, I'l buy some more from them.

(How come you don't have @Mention ?)

Have you seen on C4 a new series - the preview shows you a guy with a wellington boot on his head....it's not you, is it?

@ KayDog

Just to clarify... if all your cuttings are coming from the same mother plant, converting the faster rooters into new mother plants wouldn't change the genetics of the strain from the original mother plant... any difference in rooting times for cuttings from the same mother plant would be down to other factors... perhaps such as angle and position of blade cut, amount of clonex and other subtler factors such as (like you said) position in propagator etc.

Healthier plants grow roots faster during the cloning process as they are happy. By only selecting the well rooted ones, it should help to keep all future plants healthy, which will help the next set of cuts root faster. It doesn't change anything in the plant itself, mistreat the plant and it can take ages to root a set of clones.
