Clone Guard by Flying Skull
What is a Clone or Cutting? It might be best to understand what a Clone or Cutting is not. Technically speaking, a cutting or clone is not a plant. Yep, that’s right, it’s not a plant. How is that you say? Look at it this way, when you mow your lawn and the basket is full, one must dump the clippings. A clipping, cutting, or clone is a dead portion of the plant it came from.
A clipping is dead in the sense that it does not have the capacity to produce or sustain life. Therefore, a clone is a dead piece of the plant we are trying to bring to life. It remains a clone until it sprouts roots and has the ability to sustain life on its own. Only when the roots have formed and begin to bring in water and minerals can the clone be called a plant. Clone Guard helps to bring dead plant material to life. One of the prerequisites of the dead plant materials is that it must have a leaf or leaves to initiate photosynthesis. It is the leaves that Clone Guard covers, and by doing so, it helps to prevent water loss from the plant leaves. Consistent cloning provides a great start for consistent gardens.For growers looking for more consistency in the cloning process, Clone Guard should be on the shelf ready to use at a moment’s notice. Growers must ensure that the cloning process will be a complete success. A strong and healthy clone ensures the grower that the genetic potential of the future plant can be achieved.
Clone Guard Locks in Water!Clone Guard locks in water molecules from escaping through the leaves. This helps prevent the clone from wilting. Water retention in the clone’s leaves and stems is critical to getting the plant off to a proper start. Clone Guard allows the leaf to breathe but not to lose excessive amounts of water. This allows the clone to retain high levels of moisture in the leaf and prevent it from wilting. In most cases, Clone Guard is so good at restricting water from leaving the leaf that it allows the grower to reduce the use of humidity domes on rooting trays. Humidity domes, doing what they do best, retaining humidity are responsible for most Powdery Mildew cases on clones.
Consistent cloning provides a great start for consistent gardens.For growers looking for more consistency in the cloning process, Clone Guard is a must-have product. Growers must ensure that the cloning process is a complete success. Directions for Use: Shake bottle well before diluting to preferred strength. Mix with water. Prepare as a spray or dip. Take cuttings, dip cutting in rooting gels or compounds and apply Clone Guard. Store at room temperature. After mixing with water, Clone Guard is good for 5 days. Store concentrate at room temperature. Keep from freezing. May be applied in full Sun. Clone Guard may used on leaf and stem at any stage of plant growth.
Mixing: Standard strength dilution ratio: 1 part Clone Guard to 7 parts water. Aggressive strength dilution ratio: 1 part Clone Guard to 4 parts water
