Starting my mother plants to produce many cuttings

Couple of days ago i took around 25cutting from 3plants, this time i used a planting tray and filed one third of the bottom of every hole with perlite only and toped it with coco

I placed them in my dome, at first the looked welted, after a day the looked ok except 2-3of them, but after 2days they all tipped over except 5of them

So as usual i panicked, watered them and saw no difference, so i put them in front of my fan to get the coco dry, but they looked worse then before

So finally i had to make a choice of leaving them like that or take them out and put them in the aero cloner , which i toke the second route

Humidity was right on spot, ph also, nothing out of the ordinary

any thoughts on that?
Did i make the right choice?

What all did u put in the water u had the cuts soaking in ?? Did u use a clonex solution like u would in a cloner.? Did u try and feed them a feed?? I would not feed them a feed til they establish some kind of roots if that was the case. Ive never really done any cuts in any way besides in a cloner whether it was homemade or bought. I jave 100% root rate using ro water and clonex solution and i dip the cuts in clonex gel as soon as i snip it off the plant i dip it then into water. It does wash off the clonex but seems to help alot on wilting here. I get wilt if i dont dip them but they stay strait if i dip them right away. The gel has a hormone in it but i think alot has to do with it sealing the inner if the stem so no air or mi imal air is sucked up into the stem. This is just ny take from taking cuys from all my plants and how i see things happen doing this or that.

I always cut dip and put in cup til cloner is all set up and going then i do cloner asap. If u put in water do clonex first then water and no scrapong unless a harder woodsy stem scraping may be doing harm after u let it soak a day.

Just wondering if you sorted a grow light out, I build my own using led bulbs and I wouldn’t swap them for the best led’s on the market, using less than 250w per m2, 5 weeks in flower.
