So I was recently informed by a friendly fellow Twit on the Twatter that when taking cuttings, it's possible to put them into 'stasis' by wrapping the cut ends in a damp paper towel and sealing them in a plastic ziploc bag and then storing them in the vegetable crisper in the fridge (or ice box for you UK guys, probably). Just open the bags to refresh the air once every few days. They will keep for up to seven weeks, apparently? Pretty awesome if true

I wanna do a bit of breeding with these Skunks, but have no room currently so, hopefully this will work until I do! These pics were taken on day 10, today is day 12 and they are still looking fresh AF.. so far so good. Anyone else ever do this?

I would also take some cuttings weeks 4-5 in flower and leave it under a low watt light, takes up no space. cutting could take 4-6 weeks to root/grow (small progator ) under a desk lamp, 1ft tube or on a shelf near a light on 24h) just lift the lid once a day, take lid off in 2 weeks. Only problem is the cutting will smell of weed not over strong but stronger than cutting taken in veg.

TG I’ve not seen this and honestly I’m sceptical this could work for that length of time.. I just think of how long I can keep fresh herbs in the fridge ... so reviving a plant after a week inthe fridge .. maybe ..?
I’d love you to be successful though!! 🤞

I’d be inclined to stick a set of the clones you want in a small seed tray or very small pots  and make a foot square of space if they are very important for you to keep the genetics for later use .. you can keep several cuttings in the same pot too, just keep trimming down til you’re ready for use later .. 

good luck bro and hope it works 

Time to pop some more beans 😗
