That’s a 6-week old Banana Kush seedling next to a 1-week old White Widow Auto. Both were germinated exactly the same, but damn, that BK has been giving me a hard time from Day 1!
I planted a BK, a Skywalker OG, and one each from the Patriot mixpack (AK47, Sour Diesel, Bubblegum), along with a couple WWAs. Everything grew just fine but the BK and Skywalker. Tried one more each, and only the BK popped, and it’s just been stunted in growth ever since.
I ended up taking it out of my regular seedling chamber and putting it alone in a 65W CFL tub by itself, and it seems to be growing now. I’m guessing the trouble with the new California strains is probably related to humidity and temperature. I think it’s been too dry and too cold. When I put it alone in a small tub with close range CFLs, it was much warmer, and that’s when it started to finally grow.
I’m holding off on my next Skywalker attempt until I can set up some better temp and humidity control in my grow area. But I’m gonna veg this BK for awhile (as if 6 weeks isn’t a long time already!), try and get some size to her before flower!
