Application Instructions


Using Athena Cuts couldn’t be easier! Just navigate through these 5 simple steps:

1. Open your Athena Cuts and squeeze a small amount into a measuring cup.

2. Identify suitable cuttings on a healthy mother plant (see below for more help).

3. Make a smooth diagonal cut through the nodal intersection using a scalpel.

4. Dip the exposed cut into your Athena Cuts for a few seconds.

5. After application, put cuttings into an Aeroponic Propagator or rooting medium.

Depending on the variety of plant, roots should appear within a few days or weeks of application. Move the cuttings into pots/transplanting cubes as soon as roots appear.

Important note: do not dip cuttings directly into the product container, and always discard used gel – never reapply!    

Identifying Suitable Cuttings


Taking cuttings from an attractive mother plant enables you to produce completely new plants with exactly the same genetic traits as the parent – including growth rates, flavours, aromas and yields. We recommend doing the following:

  • Avoid removing more than 50% of your mother plant’s foliage for cuttings
  • Target the lower third of the mother plant, picking out healthy growing tips with 3-4 leaves
  • Target cuttings that are around 7-8cm long
  • Remove all leaves and new shoots from the bottom of a cutting to half way up it
  • Spray mother plants with Nitrozyme to boost the amount of material for cuttings
  • Only take cuttings from new growth on healthy mother plants (in the veg stage)
