TurboKlone Elite Cloning Machines
TurboKlone offers the most effective and streamlined aeroponic cloning systems on the market. Through its patented design, TurboKlone cloning systems offer a wide array of planting site options while lowering the temperature of the growing environment and increasing the oxygen content of the water.
Elite 96 Cloner
The Elite 96 is our Commercial Cloning System with a patented, built-in cooling system. With 96 clone sites, it is everything you need to propagate clones in your small or medium-scale commercial growing environment. We’ve taken our widely respected Black Label T96 unit and made it even better; reinforced reservoir, alpha-numeric grid set-up, color-coded stem collars, and a higher RPM fan. (Vented Humidity domes are available for all TurboKlone Elite units)
Elite 144 Cloner
TurboKlone Elite 144 is currently the largest and most effective cloning system on the market. With 144 clone sites and our patented self-cooling system, it is everything you need to propagate clones commercially in a large-scale growing environment. We’ve taken our widely respected Black Label T144 unit and made it even better; reinforced reservoir, alpha-numeric grid set-up, color-coded stem collars, and a higher RPM fan. (Vented Humidity domes are available for all TurboKlone Elite units)
Features & Benefits
Built-In Cooling System
TurboKlone®’s built in cooling fan propagates your cuttings faster than any other cloner brand by pumping fresh, cool air into the reservoir and cooling chambers around the basin. As the air is pumped into the cloning unit, it mixes with the fine droplets being propelled from the spray jets and cools the water's temperature. With cooler water temperatures, oxygen is broken down more efficiently, increasing the amount of dissolved oxygen delivered to the clones!
Increased Fan Power
That’s right! We’ve taken our standard TurboKlone® fan and upgraded it to a TurboKlone 4,800 RPM Elite Series Fan. What does that mean for you? More oxygen, cooler temperatures, and faster rooting!
The Elite Series Fan decreases propagation time by pumping fresh, cool air into the reservoir and cooling chambers around the basin at a higher rate of speed. As the air is pumped into the cloning unit, it mixes with the fine droplets being propelled from the spray jets and cools the waters temperature. With cooler water temperatures, oxygen is broken down more efficiently, increasing the amount of dissolved oxygen delivered to the clones!
Have you experienced bowing with your current cloner? We felt your pain and reinforced the siding on our Elite Series Cloners. No more bowing or spilling from the reservoir so that you can pick up and transport your cloning system worry-free.
Often, darker colors attract and retain heat. The TurboKlone Elite Series has improved the traditional cloner design by adding a light grey coating that reflects light, keeping the interior temperature of your cloning system cooler and more efficient.
Alphanumeric, Color Separated Site Planning
If you’re like us, keeping track of which clone is in which site can be a daunting task. With the TurboKlone Elite Series, planning and tracking your clones is quick and easy. Using an alphanumeric grid system and both green and blue clone collars, you can separate your plant varieties by color and notate its position on your cloning system. Just like playing Battleship!
Vented Humidity Domes
Humidity is key to propagating healthy plants. If the cloning environment does not have the proper moisture content, you may experience dry clones, browning leaves or even burning; minimizing the chance of the clone’s survival. Our Elite Cloners not only offers a high-quality dome to trap in humidity, but we took it a step further by adding adjustable ventilation. Close the vents for full humidity or open them incrementally to achieve optimal growing conditions.

TurboKlone Elite Klone Machines - 96 or 144 Sites Questions & Answers
Q: How frequently does my cloning unit need to be cleaned?
A: We recommend that your TurboKlone Cloning System is cleaned in between each cloning cycle.
Q: How do I clean my TurboKlone unit?
A: 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.
Q: What temperature should my reservoir be?
A: 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
Q: What kind of water should I use?
A: 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.
Q: What should the pH of my water be?
A: The ideal pH for efficient propagation is between 5.8 and 6.2.
Q: What kind of light works best with my TurboKlone System?
A: Simple T12 fluorescent 40 watt lights work great. A two foot dual bulb fixture works well over the 16 and 32 site systems while a four foot dual bulb fixture works well for the 64 and 128 site system.
Q: How far should my light be from my cuttings?
A: 8-24 inches is more than sufficient.
Q: What light schedule should my clones be on?
A: It’s usually the growers preference, but 18 – 24 hours a day works great.
Q: How large should my cutting be?
A: As a 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.
Q: How long until I start seeing roots?
A: Root 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 16.
Q: When are my cuttings ready to be transplanted?
A: 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.
Q: Where’s the best place to set up and run my TurboKlone Unit?
A: 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.
Q: Can I reuse my Clone Collars?
A: 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.
Q: Do I need the humidity dome?
A: 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.
Q: Does my pump need to run continuously 24 hours a day?
A: 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.
Q: Do my TurboKlone products come with a warranty?
A: Yes. TurboKlone products are all under warranty for the first 90 days following your purchase.
