Homemade clone machine

So I built this clone machine. I’m gonna paint it right after I post this. Just wondering what a good water/nutrient solution would be to run in this puppy. High nitrogen? Rooting hormone? I have some excellent tops I want to clone before flipping.

I have a similar diy cloner


I use Home Depot bucket lids that have the rubber ring in them. I find it doesn’t leak. You can make around 13-15 2” holes on top. They should have 5 gal black buckets too. I use plastidip to paint the lids black.
I used to use straight tap water but my next clone run I’m going to be using griffins tech cloning method. Look up “griffins tech” on Instagram.

Bitchin! I was gonna do 1" PVC but couldn’t find the reducers to get down to 1/2"NPT fast enough. So I seen the manifold and grabbed some tubing. I’m painting mine with the spray can rubberized truck bed liner. What do you use in your water to mix up for cloning?

Here was a good thread

I think I used 2” pvc.
I used to use straight tap water ( registers 0ppm on my blue lab) and some strains root in 2+ weeks but I was interested in griffins tech cloning method. He uses UC roots, Hormex, and clonex clone solution. Look up his method on Instagram. The results look stellar

No nutrients at all. Just pH’d tap water to 6-6.5 will work.

I just ended up adding some clonex to my ph’d de chlorinated water. Here’s the first rendition. I’m sure there will be modifications to come. Looks like it should work good enough added some insulation cause it gets in the high 60s at night and some marine grade silicone to solve the over spray .

Got some roots going on all clones. This is the best one. First time cloning successfully.

Very nice brother! I just recently made a turbo cloner. I’ve been working on it for a few days but finally finished it last night! I’m super geeked about it. I can’t wait to see how they turn out. I used a seedling mix from GH. PPM 243 and PH’d at 5.8 with RO water. We’ll see what happens!

Very nice guys! You continue to inspire me. My only regret is that I didnt make it bigger then a 5 gal bucket but then again I can only handle so many with small space. I just added what I had left in the pouch of clonex after dipping the stems, 30ml of microbe life hydroponics root dip and ph at 6.1. Did you guys get a pump and add on some misters or did you go another route?

Hey @sleeperjunky! Sorry for the late response. I’m trying to do better at keeping up on the various threads. Yes, I just followed the pictures that @preybird1and @Packee showed me of theirs and added my own touch to it. Just a pump, some PVC and nozzles. I found the nozzles and pump at my local grow store. The rest I just acquired from Lowes.
