Tonys Cutting Guide
Posted 21 August 2011 - 03:57 PM
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

"My conscience won't let me go shoot my brother or some darker people or some poor, hungry people in the mud for big, powerful America. And shoot them for what? They never called me nigger, they never lynched me, they didn't put no dogs on me, they didn't rob me of my nationality, rape and kill my mother and father. Shoot them for what? How can I shoot them poor people? Poor little black people and babies and children and women. How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail." — Muhammad Ali http://www.uk420.com...howtopic=366744 Diary

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....
