While there are many options for cleaning, we
recommend that you use a 30:1 ratio of water (H2O):hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and
run the cloner with the solution for a full day. The following day, empty your
unit and run it with pure water (H2O) for a minimum of eight hours.
We recommend keeping your TurboKlone’s reservoir
temperatures between 65℉ and 75℉, with your ideal temperature being 70℉. Unlike other cloning
units, TurboKlone’s cloning units help keep your temperatures down
with our patented, self-cooling design.
At TurboKlone, we generally recommend plain tap or well water.
However, if you only have access to RO water, we suggest adding in some spring
water to increase the amount of particulates. Water free of particulates
provides less nutrients to the plant and makes the water more difficult to pH.
general rule, you want your cutting to be somewhere between 6” and 8” in
length. It is important to remember that the larger the cutting, the more
energy it requires to sustain itself. Be sure to keep about 2” exposed on the inside
of the unit.
development can be influenced by a number of different factors, including your
cloning environment, the type of plant you are cloning, and the condition of
the mother plant you’ve selected. That said, most cuttings will begin to form
root nodules between 5 to 8 days and will be ready to transplant between 12 and
Depending on the medium your transplanting into, your cuttings should have roots that are at least 2” long. Typically, longer, more developed roots have a higher success rate. Remember if roots get too long they can be trimmed with sterile scissors during transplanting.
Stability is key. We recommend finding a flat, sturdy surface that is easily accessible and capable of supporting your fully-loaded unit. Work tables, commercial racking, or floor-mounted shelving are all great options.
Yes. Our collars can be cleaned by soaking them in the same solution of water and hydrogen peroxide (30:1 ratio). While cleaning your collars is an option, may growers choose to replace them each cycle to avoid contamination from left over plant material and bacteria.
Humidity domes can be very effective, but are not always necessarily. Humidity domes are available for users who are cloning in an environment with less than 40% humidity. When using a humidity dome, it is very important to remove the dome daily and allow any excessive moisture build-up to evaporate. This decreases the risk.
The short answer is yes. TurboKlone’s pumps are magnetic drive pumps and are designed to be run continuously. In fact, repeated powering on and off of your pump can lead to pump failure. While some people do prefer to power cycle their units, doing so will void your pump warranty. Power cycle at your own risk.
