our plants are putting out lots of leaves with only the three large fingers, no little side fingers, anyone know if this is the strain or is our lighting wrong?

You probably just need to be patient. The lighting and environment have nothing to do with the number of blades on the leaves. That's genetically programmed.

Seedlings start with a single bladed leaf, then differentiate to 3 blades, then to 5 or 7 blades, then possibly to 9 or more blades.

Once they start flowering, they will regress to single bladed leaves within the buds that only progress to become larger multiple bladed leaves if needed by the plant.

unless it is just the first couple nodes like panama red described it could be a mutant. Ill have to search through all my old pics from my last grow to try and post some. we had a mutant in the bunch and it was interesting watching it grow. Besides for the off number of blades it grew normally and produced delicious tasting budds!

I have great pics of these plants that have tripled in size and gone from 5 to 3 now single finger leaves, the bigger they are in veg the more inferior the leaves.
HOW DO I post a pic.

Another bit of info on these "deformed" plants, when we got them 3 and a half weeks ago, they were starting to go into flower mode, hairs, we put them in 18 hr high pressure sodium light and over this three week period they went from 5 to 3 and now single blade leaves yet tripled in size.

From my experience stress can cause that and weak genetics can cause that too. Sometimes people take cuttings off of clones and take cuttings off of those cuttings until the point where the genetics get weak and plants only have 3 leafs.

I can't say 100% those practices are what led to the 3 leaf but I'm just putting two and two together.

Hello Sherry,


Dont panic, all is well. It will take several weeks to fully revert back into vegetation. You will go from 5 blades to 3, then to 1. Then it will reverse, 1-3-5-7...

One thing that I like to do that seems to help speed up the process, is pick a couple of good branches to keep, then trim the rest off. This will concentrate the growth into the branches you choose. You can probably get some clones out of what you trim off as a bonus.

Hit them with a dose of good veg nutes, to give them a kick of nitrogen. I would go with a 50% load max.

clones of clones don't really lose anything there are people on these forums that have been going clone off clone off clone with no degradation of potency. they are an EXACT clone for a reason which is why we clone in the first place.

Hmm, good to know. I was always weary of cloning off of clones and thought I had to keep a mother from original stock on hand. Thanks for the info.

it's always good to keep a mom don't get me wrong. taking clones off of clones though is an ok practice since people trim their plants they can make clones off of those and not see a difference really in potency or anything. The mom just makes sure you always have clones.
