I figured I would give aeroponics cloning a try. 20 cuttings of Cascade, Perle, and Saaz underway. If anyone is interested I will update the progress.... if any.

Mix potting soil with sand. 50/50 mix.

With in a week they will have roots. Don't over water them or mold/fungus will kill them.

Within a month. You will need to transplant to bigger pots due to root growth.


Edit. Will be interested in seeing what happens when growing them in aeroponics after they root. Or are you planting them in soil?

I am trying to get plants started using aeroponics and then transplant them into pots or directly into my hop yard expansion area. I am cautiously optimistic.

This time of year, you will do fine. If not.
Then try root hormone and no tips. (Just two leaves).

There's another thread on this subject. Mine went from eight plants to twenty. Would of been more but I over watered.
