    Correct. Been trying for 3 months to clone this tomato plant. Killed I dont know how many cuttings. Finally figured out my rookie mistake and got one to grow roots. Since posting that pic the roots have doubled.

    The pink slab next to the rooting jar.

    Why are you trying to clone a tomato plant?

    What is cloning in this situation?

    Why are you doing this rather than just planting a seed?

    Its r10. Few years ago starting seeds I put the heat mat on the counter and it loosened the glue and the laminate top started to buckle and come up. So now I use that.

    Cloning the plant is simply taking a branch of a good healthy plant and then sticking it in water to get it to grow roots. They say you save about 3-4 weeks over starting from seed by cloning.

    Im doing the clone mostly to see if I can.y thought is since the seeds for this variety were pretty pricy, I could grow a clone inside over the winter, and starting in Januaryi could make a bunch of clones to start my garden with.

    What are you putting in the hydroponic water to encourage root promotion / growth?

    Nothing. Just cut a branch (preferably a sucker), stick it in a cup of water under a light. About two weeks later there will be some small roots.

    Now that it has some roots I put it in a super weak fertilizer solution. Next Ill put it in normal strength fertilizer. They say you start to strong it will kill it.

    My brother in law planted the seed of all this malarkey so her is am just playing around.

    They sell cloning solutions and powders that make that happen even faster and stronger.

    First time I tried it, with tomatoes, had something like 20 or 30 cuttings. Had 100% success rate. Had to toss most out, I was expecting a much lower yield.

    Pot growers are big on this stuff. Saves weeks compared to starting from seed.
    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    You aren't cloning the plant, you are propagating it. Pretty big difference! Tomatoes are usually easy. If you just bury most of the stem of a cutting in moist soil it will readily root out.
