DIY 30 site bubble cloner

Here's my successful 30 site DIY bubble cloner. I used a 15 gal Rubbermaid Roughneck tote, cut 2 " holes in the top. I filled the 2" holes with pipe insulation that was 2" outer diameter and 1/2 inch inner diameter. These are the site I let my clones rest in. Their fan leaves hold em suspended wonderfully. I use Clonex Gel and a razor.. cut lower nodes, 45° cut under an old node, that had leaves cut off flush with stem, I scrape the lower 1 inch to allow for more surface area options for root possibilities, and then dip in the gel and set into the pipe insulation 1/2" hole. In the cloner, there is about 6 Gallons of PH'd 6.0 water (not sure which is best.. it's debated online) and I use GH Rapid Start Rooting Enhancer. I just go off the bottle for directions. I use two 14' long airstones to bubble the crap out of the solution, and a 30gal fish tank heater to maintain a good cloning temp. When the clone is ready, and there's plenty of root mass there, I will pull the insulation "puck" up and just take the clone right out of the slit that's built into the puck, and into my medium. I use Royal Gold COCO + Perlite + Sunshine Advanced Mix #4. They will go into 1gal pots, until done vegging, then smartpots to hold the coco etc and into Hydroton in netpots for flowering. (But that's getting a bit beyond this cloner)

I've only used this once so far, but I was never successful with cloning until now. This DIY coner will set you back about $40-$45 and will put a smile on your face when you start to see those big root masses building up on the end.

I ment to mention, you should "tip" your leaves so that 1) it helps with stabilization and airflow around the clones and 2) it helps stop the veg process and helps engage root growth. At least that's what I believe from what I've read and found. I just forgot to do it, after making the cloner and staying up late that night... I just took em and placed. I can't believe I forgot to tip

I probably would've had more than 13 / 22 take root if I did tip.

Question about bubble cloners. This may sound but I would rather ask then do it wrong. When filling your cloner with water do you fill it high enough that the stems are in the water or just above the water line so they get misted?

The way I understand the bubble cloner (I've only used a homemade out of plastic coffee can) the bubbles bursting is how the clone stems should e kept wet

Thanks ozzy I thought so but wanted to be sure before trying to clone my Bubblishious. Mine is home made also. Did your home made one work?

50/50 but I think the remnant coffee smell in the can might have had something to do with the poor results. for me soil cloning has always been the best results.

I filled mine so that the water level was just touching the stems to start.. in a day or so it would evaporate a bit down... and the popping bubbles would do the trick.

I don't use a bubble cloner anymore. Somehow I was getting horrible results, but currently I have a 100% method the last few cloning sessions. I put cuttings directly into red solo cup full of coco and a little perlite. >.<

Does the trick WONDERFULLY! :)

Nice wrk.
I've built a few of these. With nothing but crap results. Found em to be very hit n miss. :(.
Went back to pellets n zip lock bags till building a bucket cloner similar to the ez cloner.
Since then it's been lable cut drop forget 99% success rate id say.
Only clones that didn't take were the white x chem d. :(.
Job well done.
LH.
