With the rooted clones duke, do you have to take them out weekly & feed them or anything or can just leave in there for 8 weeks solid?

 

I have 3 king kong clones am thinking of doing this as not sure how their mothers are going to flower. So thinking of starting something else then going back to these later if they bare nice fruits. :wisewizard:

hi lab i never fed mine they in coco which is inert so i do add a low ec and the fact there in stasis means they do not need to feed as such as no new growth is happening they last easy a month without feed and as long as they dont dry entirely they do ok with just whats in the pudding bowls i use for rooting and germing,my longest lasting fridge clone to still grow well after has been a tad under 8 weeks and it was yellowing slightly when bought out but soon greens up with the first feed or two,the unrooted cuttings are more of a problem and sucumbed to grey mould after 5-6 weeks but that was in tiny test tubes which probs makes a lot of difference,the main criteria is cold but not near freezing sealed enviroment ie plastic bag which you blow up and tie around the clone best if no leaves touch the plastic,i have 2 nightqueen clones unrooted sat in a glass of water with a plastic clear lid over and in fridge been a month and despite my thoughts of pythium etc killing them they are actually greener than the mother plant atm!good luck

Watching with interest as I said before...

 

I'd be very interested in your opinion of when they "wake up" so to speak after removal from the fridge.. How you do it, everything..

 

This is very interesting :)

 

I'm going to wish you luck as well, hope it all works out.
