Plant Cloning
« on: July 21, 2010, 07:11:46 AM »
Deathanyl brought up the subject of plant cloning in another Topic,
Plants for non - food survival uses 
http://planetxtownhall.com/index.php?topic=782.0
Plant cloning is a subject I didn't know much about - and it is important to
learn this. I feel it deserves its own Topic.
I found a reference people can look at if they need to.
BG Hydro site - Better Grow Hydro
http://www.bghydro.com/bgh/static/articles/1205_cloning.asp
Plant Cloning Explained
"Cloning has been around for centuries. Cloning allows the gardener to replicate a genetically
identical plant from a parent plant. The clone will have the exact same characteristics as the mother
plant, the same growth habit, disease resistance, fruit shape, flower color and yield potential..."

Article continues. I am going to post the whole article here in the next post, and also in one of the Topics on food growing.
Thanks,
Yowbarb

Plant Cloning Explained[/color]
Cloning has been around for centuries. Cloning allows the gardener to replicate a genetically identical plant from a parent plant. The clone will have the exact same characteristics as the mother plant, the same growth habit, disease resistance, fruit shape, flower color and yield potential.

Materials

The materials that are required for taking cuttings are:

Sharp shears or scissors
Clean razor blade
Rooting hormone
Cloning system (e.g. aeroponic cloning system, rockwool cubes, Rapid Rooters or Oasis cubes)
Propagation tray (if not using an aeroponic cloning system)
Tall Humidity Dome (if not using an aeroponic cloning system)
Spray Bottle for misting
Vita Grow Anti Wilt Concentrate
HydroGuard and Rhizotonic
 
Taking a cutting

Select a branch or stem that has at least 2 or 3 sets of leaves.

Locate a spot on the branch between, or next to, a set of leaf nodes where your cut will be made (leaf nodes are where the branches/leaves come out of the stem). Leave at least two sets of nodes above the cut. Use a pair of scissors to take the cutting off the mother plant. Cut away the largest leaves first as it is difficult for a cutting to maintain these large leaves without roots.

Remove the lower 1 or 2 sets of branches (stems and leaves), leaving two upper sets of leaves. Place the cutting on a tile or cutting board and use a sharp razor to make a clean, neat, 45 degree slice. It is important that you do not damage the branch while handling. Do not use scissors to make the 45

Deathanyl I felt it deserved its own topic so I started it and gave you credit for posting the ideas...
I know very little about this so this will help me learn, too.

As for vehicles/ motors, get a carb and intake for alcohol as one can brew there own alcohol to run said devices, Alcohol for burning is much easier then alcohol for drinking to make.
