As you gather your supplies, take your sterile scissors and cut off selected branches from the marijuana plant. You should aim for narrow cuts and avoid leaving broken stems/branches on the mother plant.
Once you've separated the pruning from the mother plant, you'll want to sterilize your scissors – and prepare a second incision on the clone.
This time you need to cut at a 45-degree angle. Once the clones are ideally 3 to 5 inches in size, you don't need to remove a lot of stems on the second cut. You can opt for clones for sale in Sacramento at Mendo Bros.
Once your root hormone is applied, immediately place the clone in your root environment and make sure it is installed properly.
If you are using the rooting hormone, apply it to your clone immediately after the second cut. Remember to follow the manufacturer's directions – although applications usually only cover a quarter inch of the stem with the product.
You can now place the newly planted clone under the light. Be sure to monitor the humidity and moisture of the root medium. If you find that the root medium is losing moisture, you can apply a little room temperature water to the root medium.
If the humidity drops, you can use a spray bottle to spray the damp dome or the surrounding area. Tip: Make sure to use RO water with an appropriate pH of 5.8 during this process to avoid shocks to your plants or buildup in your root environment.
