First I pick how many inserts per tray I will use and that will depend on the size of the clones.
Fill the tray up with vermiculite.
Mix up at least 1 gallon of cloning solution per tray.
I use Olivia's Cloning Solution but you can use any good solution that is formulated for cloning.
Formula One works for cloning in low dosages
Soak the vermiculite with the gallon of solution.
Poke a hole with a nail or pencil for each sucker clone in the vermiculite.
Wear latex gloves because plants don't like to be touched by human hands..
Use a clean razor blade and change it often to cut down on transferring diseases from plant to plant.
Cut the sucker at a 45 degree angle and stick it about 2/3rds the way down the vermiculite.
Cover with a plastic hood to bring up the humidity.
You can make a hood with wire and plastic food wrap.
Place under Cool White florescence lights and in 7 to 10 days or when you see roots they will be ready for transplanting to your garden.
