So I was busting out a tray of clones this morning and I had this thought: “Well, this is my quadrillionth clone. I’ve have done this task so many times and my methods have changed very little over the years. I wonder how other growers do this? Can I do better?”
While I have cloned using many methods, I still keep going back to the tried and true method of using IBA rooting hormones and rockwool to make clones. I have a 97% survival rate and I think it works for me…but how could I close the gap on that 3% death rate? Do other growers have something to teach me? I learn so much from the other growers on this forum every day so I want to learn a little more…how do you clone?
Are there growers out there practicing tissue culture? If so, why did you make the switch? Why should I switch from cloning to TC?
