Mark,    I bought the cloner on E-Bay for $74.99.  Look on E-Bay
under the category  CLONER.  The one I bought is on the first page
and is called AEROPONIC BUCKET the one with with 12 holes.  Sold by
HYDRO-WEST. Picture is there.  Let me know if you want more pictures
and I will take a few pictures of the cloner and send them to you. I
want it to clone cherry plants.
