To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Every plant I have tried to use this on has melted where the stuff went on. Maybe I'm doing it wrong, I dunno, but I never had problems like this with the powders. Lost some really nice plants that I was looking forward to.
This root tech stuff is absolutely by far the best cloning gel I've used. Whoops clonex butt to the point that I (right now) have a full bottle of clonex and it's basically a paperweight, never will be used. I have cloned probably over 100 (indica sativa and crosses) strains with root tech, likely a few thousand clones...with almost 100% success rate. Yes, that's the truth. When I ran out recently, and switched to clonex for a short while because I had some, my success rate dropped significantly. Needless to say I'm with root tech for good. I can't say enough good about these guys. My 100% success rate is in reference to the root tech brand only, the success rate with other brands was noticeably different/lower.
My successful method: I keep it simple. I take cuts from the mother, and with a clean (disinfected) razor blade I scrape the skin only from the bottom 1/2 inch of the stem (be delicate). Then dip in cloning gel, and into pre-moistened rapid rooter plugs (or root riot). Stick em in the clone tray, on top of heat pad, and feed pH balanced 6.0 water. Place under florescent lamp. That's it. I don't go crazy with extra steps or get over complicated. I have almost 100% success, and the few that don't survive are more likely due to neglect than anything.
I would absolutely recommend this stuff hands down over the several other brands I've tried. It's very easy to use, and eliminates headaches, guesswork wondering why you're only getting 50% success, etc.
If anybody has something bad to say about this stuff, they are very likely doing something very wrong. If you have a decent idea of how to clone, this should make your life easier and is worth the extra few bucks, trust me! Just think about it...would you rather save a few bucks, and get something with 50-75% success, essentially leaving you to guess and have to grow extras to be sure you fill your space, or would you rather have a product that works as intended?
I don't work for these guys in any way, I'm just a big fan and feel that a fantastic product with fantastic results really does deserve being mentioned in today's overcrowded marketplace. Hope this info has been helpful and welcome to someone trying to make a tough choice. Hope it also saves some from the trial and error of testing different brands over a course of years! This review is referring to CANNABIS cultivation cloning ONLY. I can NOT comment on how effective this product is for any other type of plant, fruit, vegetable, etc.
If you're looking to clone cannabis of any variety, you've stumbled onto the very best stuff (my honest, humble opinion) to get the job done! You'll buy it again.
The gel sticks to cuttings very well. My only problem is this is an incredibly small container, and it was only half full! There was only enough for about three shoebox size storage containers of jiffy pods with clones. It might not have been so bad if the tiny container had at least been full. It was a ripoff for $7.
I used the cloning gel to clone a red/yellow petaled rose bush from my front yard and put it in my back yard, my first attempt was a failure because I was impatient but second try I followed online instructions to the letter and now my rose bush is rooted and growing but has not flowered yet
