Hi Eric,
Good point, and one I hadn’t really considered. Due to the costs involved in purchasing some kinds of seeds, cloning becomes a subject of great interest and necessity for some. Also when one finds a variety of any plant that is superior, it is natural to want to preserve that plant in production. Once again I appreciate your responses; I did find one reference to using willow bark water as a cloning aid but have not tried that yet. And then perhaps I’m not as purist as I thought! I am going to try a comparison of Clonex and Olivia’s for fun. I’m beginning to think this is a question “not tending to edification” especially since it will probably never be scientifically studied! I guess we just do our best, give our best effort and the results will speak for themselves. Have a wonderful weekend,
