I tried cloning for the first time and all the plants turned out male. The mother plant is female. If they are genetic copies how did that happen. They at least were showing male sex. Did I do something wrong. I didnt use a heating pad could that cause it. The rooting clones weren't bottom heated. I really need some help here.

If you were propagating a monoecious plant (many flowers and woody species are monoecious), then what you've said is impossible. My guess is that your mother plant (species?) is a male and that you've kept it from flowering? If the plant is dioecious (again, a variety of plants are dioecious) then you should see both sexes on an individual plant. Do some research on what you are growing. If it is monoecious as you suggest, then you cloned a male.
