    everyone has their own methods....heres mine.... I've always only given clones water until after they get roots, then a mild dose of ferts to start, "they" say to take clones from the middle of the plant, which I do but I always had a hard time throwing the leader or top away lol
    I grew hydro... hope this helps

    Think of the clones more like seedlings, the nubs have to make roots and if they're getting everything they need where they are then they have no incentive to branch out looking for more nutrients.

    As I recycle, I place seedlings and clones in "spent" flowering mix after it has had a few months in a tote. In fact, everything gets this same recycle except the veg and flower plants will have organics mixed in first while the clones and seedlings will get it straight without anything added - they feed on the leftovers.

    Remember that when you top, the plant it going to branch out from that point up. Many growers will make the mistake of letting the plant grow up to the height they want and then topping to encourage branching below, which will cause more lower branch growth but the top will still be taking off so you must chose the point at which you desire the plant to branch out - which initially may appear to be low until you see the plant grow. Many growers top of the 4th or 6th node for a bush but you'll get to know your plant and it depends on what you want to happen. You may find that topping later and higher is what you need but don't try that in a short cabinet grow (Yes, I have )

    You can take clones anywhere on the plant and have them root. Some people prefer to clone only the top main stem, such as what Mandala seeds does, others take them from the lower branches that would have been cleared away in a lollipoped grow - these branches are soft and pliable and have not yet formed woody (cannabis does not actually make any wood) material and thus are more able to quickly convert into rootmass.

    This is the method I have used for quite sometime with my mothers, works great for both limited space and average grow rooms.

    I've used a crosscut saw and retransplanted back into the same pot with fresh mix for a new burst of growth.

    Five cuts: one on each side and one on the bottom then plant it back in the pot and water.

    If you don't have a saw handy, a sharp kitchen knife or one with teeth will suffice. Just don't tear up the rootball when you do it - you should have a nice clean cube below your plant

    I have 7 (NL&TS) cuttings that had to be moved to 12/12 at 10" (had to happen) and 7 seedlings in veg w/2 mothers.
    Essentially what I need to do is keep them happy and healthy until I can move the seedlings to 12/12 (4 or 5 weeks) and then I will start taking cuttings.
    (Note: the seedlings are orphans that I cracked to try mainlining.)
    So at this point I have no room for new cuttings.
    My nutes came with a feeding schedule that seems to work well so far, I'm not ready to move on from this just yet. So first thing first. Feeding moms.
    I had a tough time getting these clones to take but they are healthy now, nice roots etc. I use GH 3 part in veg cabinet. Up until now I've had a feed and read attitude (feed them and see if I got it right). So based on the type of nutes I use what tips to keep 'em happy for a month. They are in 3 gal pots.Here are pix awhile back they're about 10" now.

    Sorry, the How-Do-I? made it a bit unclear but that subforum itself was under another subforum called Suggestions, Feedback & Troubleshooting.

    It was intended for trouble with forum issues and controls, such as how to use the reputation system or the embedded chat and Instant Messenger & Buddy List.

    Ok so when it's all straightened out someone please send me a map...I'm so confused.
    I either posted in the wrong place or wrongly placed my post in the right place. Mom said I never knew my place. I thought I had it right , as a carpenter I've always known where to place my posts the confusion lies in whether that will support putting my post in the place I put it...ya know what I mean?

    Cheer up it won't make any sense tomorrow either.

    Just occurred to me...
    if we were all sitting around in the grow smoking some fine weed and I asked "How do I"?, the conversation would be pretty much like this thread

    So what do I feed my moms?

    LOL now its clear Shad, we were in the wrong Sub-SubForum, right? I can now understand OJ's concern, sorry man, um ....its Shads fault LOL.... jk.... can we get another "how do I" type of subforum somewhere else for questions about anything that may come up, like Roli's wife? Seeing that it was so well received and there are so many wise guys here.
    nohib, your post about your non-bearing posts made perfect sense to this Plumber Millwright lol

    What would you call a section specifically for this type of mindless fun. Where all things are relative. No specific topic. One original post and let 'er run

    Generally you would feed them like any other plant. They still need nutrients to live.

    Don't get me wrong, you don't have to feed them to the max. Just play with it, and figure out the magic mix to keep them alive and growing to your desires.

    Me, I'll starve the broads till they put the lotion on the skin LoL!

    Basically I start feeding mine more when I want to get ready to take clones.

    I'm at a loss here
    I started the thread to get info from other members.I did and was appreciative of the help. I also got a bonus,,,some humor. I have no issue with the posts. I am a relatively new member and certainly don't want to alienated myself from you or anyone else LT but I started the thread and it's all cool to me.I appreciate what the issue is. I just thought it would be up to me to complain.

    I apologize,it's your house, I didn't understand
