I have a crystal plant that is almost 3 months old and has not developed a 5 finger leaf yet. Only 3 fingers are to be seen. She is healthy alright, was slow to get passed its 3rd or 4th set of leaves as a seedling. but growth rate has been good since. A blue aquarium light has been her primary source of light for a few weeks, could that perhaps be the cause? Although the pineapple chunk is next to it and has normal leaves? @peachfuzz @raustin @Covertgrower @Countryboyjvd1971 @Oldstoner @elheffe702 @dbrn32 @Whodat66 @blackthumbbetty
Got me, sometimes you run across a plant that genetically wants to do some funky stuff. I don’t think you could single handedly blame the light source, but it seems like you get a much more expected growth out of a balanced light spectrum.
Im feeling certain the blue is working well,with a daylight bulb in the same housing. This plant has been gowing pistils already too,thats on a 18/6 schedule
12 weeks old, those are pre flowers. That’s pretty normal.
sweet.all is well then. The lights didnt show up today,so i expect to get them monday. I would expect that our Anzac Day public holiday slowed things up. LEST WE FORGET.
Is she an auto? Ruderalis has 3 leaves, and sometimes autos can really express that trait.
no.she is a photo. I gotta be honest , im starting to wonder.
Idk i may be off here
but i have an ogk cut that throws 3fingers all the time. I mean 3 fingers but bigger than my hand. I was told that oldschool true og kush cuts were known to throw 3fingers n it was sign of the best ogk lines
Mine has em all through flower n all she does get some 7-9s but mainly big dumb 3fingers
I dont know your strain’s background but maybe a good ogk backbone
mine puts out an exotic lemon pine flavor not just some lemon pine. Coca cola taste like sprite after a bowl hit. Real clear yet relaxing high too.
So i wouldnt mark it as something bad.
Can you post pic of this 3finger crystal plant ?
I ran a photo strain of chemdog for 3 years through cloning and it never grew anymore then 3 finger fan leaf’s… it was a very good strain that would turn almost a black and purple color towards the end of flower without any temperature adjustments…
It also never really grew any taller the 2’ to 3’ … but it was fire… wish I still had it…
Sometimes they do weird stuff.
Look at this Bergmans gold leaf I’ve got
I’ve never seen that before either.
Here’s a 3 finger leaf on an auto Frisian dew and further up they are 7 leaf. At first they were all rounded and wavy on the fringe. Didn’t even look like what it is. Gonna smoke well I’m sure.
good stuff to hear. she seems to be growing aok by me. i was surprised to see the 3 fingers from a seed. thought that stuff was for monster croppers just starting to veg again. interesting is all.cheers for the input @Rooted
what r the specs of the aquarium light.?
what is your watering schedule.?
also… like Hungry said, we need good pics.!
a true photo plant should not have 3 finger leaves,
it is a sign of internal stress, like re-vegging from flower.
could be caused by bad lighting, over-watering, heat/cold stress…
@Oldguy 's plant experienced internal stressing early on and has since not been exposed to that stress or simply grew big enough to overcome it.!
@Rooted 's ogk sounds very temperamental, if he can find the stress or stresses and fix it/them, she would not put on 3 finger leaves anymore.!
@Drinkslinger has a true deformity, sorry Drink, don’t mean to offend… anomaly.! lol
tag me when u get some good ‘white light’ pics and/or info posted.!!
Ha. No offense. Just ilgm genetics. I think they’ve created an auto topping plant. Saves me the trouble of cutting her the first time.
It is wierd though
I had the same thing happen with my Gold Leaf. Started and stayed weird looking for the first several weeks.
Even more interesting.
Looks like someone’s cat has been enjoying the garden. My profile pic of my hound dog is a perfect example of what happens to domestic animals that sample ones stash. lol
You are correct. Mine had a stuck seed husk that I had trouble removing. And the plant has outgrown that.
