My advice to you is always cut at or just above a node. The roots seem to like to come out of the nodes fast. I also recommend using Roottech cloning gel. And if an Easy-Clone machine is conducive to your system, I recommend them as well. I can take a cutting, let it sit in the open air for days, cut off the bottom couple of inches stick it in gel, put it in the machine and have roots in a week. The clone machines are great, as it has eliminated the need for veg.
I can take a 12" clone and as soon as it has roots I throw it in bud.
How to Take Perfect Plant Cuttings from a Mother Plant
Oh yea.. If it did have any you just pulled them off by pulling it out. If it still looks healthy, like a growing plant, leave it alone. You will see roots soon enough. Joined: May 1, Messages: Likes Received: One of the most common mistakes made when cloning happens before you even cut the clone.
About a week before taking clippings, you should flush your mother plant with only a mild dose of nutrient. This will ensure that there are significantly lower levels of nitrates in the plants system. Cuttings will only "start" to produce roots once majority of nitrates have been metabolized, so starting with less nitrates is a must to guarantee roots in less then a week, not an E-Z clone machine I agree. The machines are just so much fun.
Why Aren’t my Clones Rooting?
You get to watch it all happen. The only down side to them is the cost, but I made a nice one once with some watter sprinkler heads attached to a sub-pump set inside a sweater tub.

You just need a few leaves to make the photosynthesis work. Joined: Aug 12, Messages: 40 Likes Received: While photosynthesis is occurring, rooting is slowed dramatically due to the plant committing its activity to photosynth Trick is, when you make the cut, cut it underwater to prevent air bubbles from causing any trouble.
Cut the clone then cut again under water. Next, stick in a humidity dome even an aquarium and moisten the shit out of it, even the walls of the aquarium.
Afterwards, make sure you water the leaves often so that your clones can eat a bit, feeds nutes if desired. Make sure the light isn't too strong and that the cycle isn't too long, as said before, the plant won't root under light.

You remember that cloning is a way to create an embryo, not a full-grown individual. The embryo, once created, must develop exactly the same way as a regular embryo made by joining egg and sperm. Your clone would need a surrogate mother and ample time to grow and fully develop into an individual. Your beloved cat Frankie has been a loyal companion for years. Recently, though, Frankie has been showing signs of old age, and you realize that your friend's days are numbered. You can't bear the thought of living without her, so you contact a biotechnology company that advertises pet cloning services.
For a fee, this company will clone Frankie using DNA from a sample of her somatic cells. Not exactly. Are you familiar with the phrase "nature versus nurture? For example, do you know any identical twins? They are genetically the same, but do they really look and act exactly alike? So, even though Frankie 2 is genetically identical to the original Frankie, she will grow and develop in a completely different environment than the original Frankie, she will have a different mother, and she will be exposed to different experiences throughout her development and life.
Therefore, there is only a slim chance that Frankie 2 will closely resemble the Frankie you know and love.
Cloning Problems and Solutions
Another difference between a clone and the original is the mitochondria. Mitochondria are organelles that sit inside nearly every cell. Their job is to burn fuel from the food we eat to make energy. Mitochondria have their own chromosome, made of DNA and divided into genes, and they divide as our cells divide.
We get our mitochondria from our mothers.
Egg cells are packed with mitochondria, which are copied and distributed to new cells as they form. When a clone is made using nuclear transfer, the egg cell that's used to receive the donor nucleus is already filled with mitochondria contributed by the egg donor. As the clone develops, its cells will be filled with these mitochondria—and their genes—rather than the mitochondria from the DNA donor.

Nature vs. Find out why twins become increasingly different as they age in Epigenetics. Clones can be made in the lab through artificial embryo twinning or nuclear transfer. But these aren't the only ways to make a clone. Clones are simply identical genetic copies. Many organisms reproduce through cloning as a matter of course, through a process called asexual reproduction.
Bacteria, yeast, and single-celled protozoa multiply by making copies of their DNA and dividing in two. Redwood and aspen trees send up shoots from their roots, which grow into trees that are genetically identical to the parent.
