How big of clone is too big? Let's find out

Just out of ceriousity and plant getting too tall I want to see how big is too big for cloning. Say you want to clone and don’t want to wait for them to get bigger to flip. My idea is cloning and once I have roots start LST for 2 weeks then flip. The tallest clone is 20" with 12 nodes out of my clone machine. I’ll give them a spritz twice a day and have a heating pad under it on low for 15 mins on 30 mins off.

Been sitting here chilling stairing at my grow and smoking. This has been in flower for 3 weeks so I decided to go ahead and try to clone it and “monster crop” it. I’ve been cerious about that too.

Monster crop happens after a complete flower cycle. Then back to veg. Too early for monster

Probably dried out. I have had this problem with 8 clones. They have to be super moist for a couple days before they make it past transplant shock.

Nearly 100% humidity for sure

I would definitely agree. Fortunately I haven’t spritzed these like I said but haven’t dried out. The humidity has been in the 50-60 range lol as a novice grower I need to get this experiment phase out of my system and figure out what I like best to get my skills tuned in. I’ll know better what to do and when to do it.

Not in my experience. Once into flower you will have to revert to veg, complete with the twisted little single blade leaves and an almost stupid amount of branching.
