Tobacco Mosaic Virus

Second batch of Bubble Gums - New pots, soil, different environment from seed with same problem (TMV). Just my thoughts and personal experiences.


An other thoughts welcomed.

10 B.G. seeds, same batch - 2 Grows 5 & 5; same conclusion. >)?(<

USUALLY this is genetic and not TMV. i’ve had a few grow like this and have one going now in the same tent with 12 other plants and it’s the only plant showing this (it didn’t spread). the fact you’ve had two batches with this makes unfortunately could go either way… environment or they’re all the same batch so could be genetic. are you getting any twisting? i would maybe just try growing them out.

also contact customer support, they will likely replace your seeds.

Yeah - I concluded that it was or is genetics. Environment is totally new & different. During the first batch 2 out of five showed it and yes one had a couple of twists. Thanks for the Info. I will.

ugh, good luck. if you have twisting that confuses the issue. hoping it’s genetic and you get past this.

:wink: I did!

Update: Week 5 of Flowering =

FYI I’ve been on this forum for years and have yet to see TMV from anyone. It happens but generally rare.

Seems to usually be a case of misidentifying partial variegation.

I have one that had a couple spots that were polyploid and some partiall variegation. Kinda tripped me out at first, but it didn’t seem to affect her.

Same here my helmet head survivor had a lot of light speckling weirdly she got rid of most of it right before preflower hit her(she was also the only one that didn’t get nitrogen toxicity when her 2 skittle sisters got a minor case of it)
