Why are my clones wilting?Why are my clones wilting? Make sure theyâ€™re firmly seated in the medium. If they are â€œtoo firmlyâ€ seated, you may have bent or broken the stem and stopped water uptake.
Make sure that the lights arenâ€™t too bright, fluoros are all thatâ€™s needed. Next time, an anti-transpirant spray will greatly reduce wilting-- they form a waxy barrier that keeps water inside the cutting.
The cuttings may be too large with too much leaf mass. You can trim off the half of the fan leaves to reduce area or take smaller cuttings.
Also monitor closely the ambient air temperature as anything above 80 is starting to get too hot and this will serve to accelerate both transpiration and the drying out of your medium. 022006
