On your last visit to the garden store you may have noticed quite a few companies selling cloning gels, powders and the like.  They all have their positives and negatives, but it can become laborious and tiresome to continuously search out these products.

I have been using a different technique to have a great growth rate for rooting clones that will cut down on garden store visitations.  The most important aspect of this recipe is to acquire and grow out a large aloe vera plant.  You can use 2oox aloe vera powder but it can become costly and is not as great as fresh aloe vera fillets.

Organic Cloning ‘Gel’

  • Fill a bucket with one gallon of dechlorinated water
  • Cut 1 filet of Aloe Vera (or two TSP Aloe Vera 200x powder) and scrape gel into water; mix thoroughly.
  • 1 TSP Potassium Silicate (Pro-Tekt or Agsil16)
  • 1 TSP Ful-Power or Fulvic Acid equivalent
  • Soak medium for several hours, we prefer Rapid Rooters or Peat Moss pucks.
  • Plant fresh cut clones directly into the soaked pucks or rooters.  You can use this same solution to dip your fresh cut clones into prior to placing them in the pucks/rooters.
  • Keep in humid environment for 10-14 days.  Mist with aloe every 3 days.

This cloning solution is the best we have ever used.  It will produce beautiful, green clones with lots of sturdy white roots.

Advanced Tip:

When your clones are fully rooted and you are ready to put into their container, brew the  organic clone planting solution (recipe below) in 1 gallon of water, aerated, for 24-36 hours and soil drench onto your newly planted clones.

Organic Clone Planting Solution

Aerate 2 TBSP Alfalfa Meal & 1 TBSP in 1 gallon water for 24-36 hours.  Mix in the organic cloning gel from above as well.  Drench soil.
