Rooted clone ready for
The roots could be
a little shorter for good soil transplanting, but no
longer than these roots...
Let the roots get
no longer than in the above pictures, in fact shorter
than that is better. Preferably about 1/2" long.
Carefully place them in the soil and water them in very
wet...soaking wet, then let the soil become almost bone
dry, by then the clone will be hardened off and rooted
into the soil nicely.
If you allow the clone to
develop the long water roots it will not adjust very
fast and stall for about a week or more, so transplant
them at or before they are 1/2" to 3/4" long. The drying
down from soaking wet soil drench will encourage great
rooting into the soil. Use a weak high P fertilizer,
preferably with b1 or with superthrive to really get the
root system established into the soil. After you're
seeing new growth you can switch them over to weak High
N ferts...but be carefull about increasing the nute
strength at first, you dont want to fry the newly
developing root systems.
long for soil...
The roots in this picture
(from Sportsters bubbler cloner) are way too long for a
good transplant to soil without stalling. However,
they'd be just fine for a hydroponic system transplant,
DWC for example.
