  • Clonex

    Hi I'm new to attempting to root and grow figs I got a few Celeste to root and into "cups" without hormone

    Now I got some cuttings from Harvey I clipped the bottom end soaked them for 48 hours waxed tip end then scraped through the bark on the root end to the bright green . I dipped them into the clonex gel . My question is does it dry or do I just toss them wet and dripping straight into the shredded moss ?
    Thanks Schroeder πŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆπŸ™‰

    I have been using Clonex for 2 years now great stuff! I dip the cuttings in the Clonex and let them sit for a few minutes to let it absorb into the wood and then right into the rooting medium Good luck with your cuttings and welcome to the sight

      Dip and in they go. I really think the gel is just a way to get you to use 4X as much product You can cut it by 50% with water and get EXACTLY the same results. I have not found that the Clonex improves the percentage of success at ALL but it does speed up the time till roots show up.

        From an earlier topic on Rooting Hormones and Clonex, http://www.ourfigs.com/forum/figs-ho...-are-you-using

        The cuttings are usually planted or placed in rooting within minutes (sometimes seconds) of being dipped. Good Luck.

          Thank you for the info especially Wills about the possibility of dilution of the clonex thinner fluid seems like it would be easier for me to use rather than a gel.... dip then drip . Thanks again SchroederπŸ™ŠπŸ™ˆπŸ™‰

            I paint it on the cutting with an artist brush.

              Often when you root a cutting without clonex the roots form at the bottom of the cutting at the edges. When I use clonex I never see the roots forming at the bottom. I always scrape along the cutting near the bottom to expose the green. I do this on opposite sides of the cutting then apply the clonex to the scrapped areas. The roots form at the edges of the scrapes. That's how it works the best for me. I find if I let the clonex dry it decreases the chance that the cutting will root as compared to putting it in the growth medium with the clonex still wet. YMMV

                  The pictures may be too big. Text the picture to yourself, the phone will automatically resize it reducing the file size, try then uploading that picture and see if it works.
