    Mother plants ("mums") in hydro

    hidronesia: let me share some story first yes, we are now growing our mothers in coco + airpots. superb combination of grow/mobility of mothers! hand watering because hands will never fail... nutrients go back to the reservoir. but i want to automate little bit, rise to maximum production on 1sq meter and i love simplicity ! so drip system is not an option. so i want to try EBB & Flow system to water coco + airpot but there is a problem that you need 400+ liters secondary reservoir to water 1sq meter 30 cm high. so option numero duo is use dwc or aero. 1 reservoir only. long lasting (1-2 weeks) without maintenance. but last time i had aeroponic grow and i discover problems with hollow stem in that system. so i need to be beware this time of this problem. somebody say that is nutrition problem, somebody say that it is genetic problem, as you said, i will post pictures of process, but need like month when i can take first cuttings and put them into the hydro...

    fuh, it was done and they are ok. so it is possible (transfer from soil to coco , 3weeks old plants.)

    Mother plants ("mums") in hydro

    just for laugh: now i am trying to take small 10-15 cm tall thin seedlings from soil (soil is contaminated with white bugs) , wash the roots and transplant them in to the Coco media to mother room. " DON´T TRY IT AT HOME FOLKS! " i am scared as fuck to take those bugs to mother room.but those seeds was a gift and i do not want to throw them away. So i am fighting for them ! ( Blue Hash - Dinafem , Bubba Kush - Green house seeds, White widow- Nirvana) i dont have big expectations from them, but it was a gift so give them a try. maybe they will surprise us at all. jet , they grow as they should.

    looks like you guys are unified Hamme Hydro: can you please post image of mothers (plants, setup etc, just to make this thread more interesting) ? how you treat them and some shot of cutting. you never experienced hollow stem in hydro for mothers? DesertGrown: well, i never experience hollow stem so much ( 1 genetic from 20 in past ) , but we made selection from regular seeds and mostly soil medium for mothers (with grow even +-2cm per night,not bad for soil, humidity was the key) now i have feminized only mother plants (because seed banks stop to do new popular strains in regular variants), and i experience much bigger ratio of hollow stem even on outdoor plants in soil (now like 50-80% have hollow stem). cuttings, lets say we had 500+ cuttings with 99.9 - 100% ratio , and yes, we use clonex1(btw use powder not gel) for soft wood plants. so we can say that other factors are not in game of this problem (temperature,humidity,cloning technique .-) next year we had plants in hydro and hollow stem was on i think almost every plant (2 different genetics) and the ratio of cloning drop from 100% to ~ 50-60%. so i think ,based on this experience! that hollow stem is problem with cloning. i dont say you cant, but its not superb easy (like if you have regular full stem). if you have dropout ratio 3-4 plants from 10 peaces. and secondary, but its more destructive was rot (diying peace of stem) on mother plants on places where the hollow stem was,, bucause then there is a big hole to the stem of the plant. just to make this thread educative more, we use EC 1,0ms ,because we experience faster grow. With EC 1,4+ms you have dark green leaves but slower grow.

    Hempyfan: those plants were healthy (lets say no signs on leaves) but what i took from your post: 1) add better nutrients combo ( NPK + focus on macro nutrients) 2) i will wait longer than 3 weeks to take first cuttings (whole plant development process, roots etc.) . take bottom clones: i love to take just tops of branches because they are superb strong clones .-) it can be just that one genetic bitch, maybe... i had couple of clones from my hydro plant and this issue wasn´t there, but the plant was much much older...like 2 months and it was blue cheese with very very slow grow even for hydro.

    i think that this problem is caused to some nutrient deficiency, i used just basic nutrients, no additives. but have no idea what i should add.

    hi,thank you for your 2 cents elwin. hollow stem problems: a ) root ratio of cuttings drop from 99,9% to 40% or less b ) plants start to rot around those places where you take cuttings. never ever experince that problem on normal mother plants with full stems.

    Mother plants ("mums") in hydro

    Hi, i think about move my mother plants to hydro. ( please skip those comments : backup in soil ) last time a took some cuttings from my aeroponic system (General hydroponic´s Rainforest + 3 part fertilizer), but i had problem because those cuttings were hollow (hole in stem). Its a big big problem for many reasons. you can imagine. i have some reasons in my mind, a ) too fast grow (plants were like 3 weeks old from seed, 40 cm so . like 3-4rd floor) b ) missing some nutrients in hydro which caused this problem.?!? c ) maybe plant not from seed but from cutting can help? so now i am scared to put genetic in dwc or aero. any experiences or some ideas ? Thanks
