Tonys Cutting Guide

A mate asked me how to take cuttings and as seen as I had to take a few today I thought I would stick a few pics up! There are plenty of other methods but I get a good success rate and if it aint broken don't try and fix it is my motto!
Being organized and well prepared is vital if you want a good return on your cuttings.
I use a heated from Prop that I got from B & Q for about £20, I always give it a good clean, plug it in and whack the lid on before I even take a cut.
As you can see it's nice and humid and ready to rock and roll
I use Root Riots, they are clean and easy to use, take up little room and come in handy trays so your cuttings are not rolling about when you check them. I always give them a soak for 5 or 10 mins, just to make sure they are fully saturated, I then squeeze the excess water out until they are about 50% saturated.
Place in your tray ready for cuttings

Find a suitable cutting and nip it off. My Mother is kept under a 250w in a Parabolic shade along side a couple of other mums.

Here are some cuttings I took 15 days ago. As you can see they are almost as healthy as the day they went in

I took 12 and all 12 rooted, as you can see there are roots every where, they were growing along the base of the prop
If that helps just one person I would be over the moon, I lost a couple of keepers because I never knew how to take cuttings, its quite simple once you know how
thanks for reading

The hard on drugs, war on drugs approach has been discredited for a very long time and it's sort of pathetic to see old men still trying to re-live those primitive battles - Prof. David Nutt

There is a new machine at the Gym, I only used it for half an hour cos it made me feel sick. It did everything Yorkies, Kit Kat, Mars Bars etc....
