What’s happening here

Morning, I’m a first time grower. I have 3 plants one seems to be flowering nicely the other two are very heavy with crowded stems and little flower growth. I probably should prune but isn’t it too late? I appreciate your thoughts, advice and suggestions. Here are some photos


Welcome ! The last picture with the plant throwing single leafs with smooth edge looks to be revegging.

@Cannabian could you send some outside growers to this thread to help this guy out .It looks like one of his plants is revegging, isn’t it to early for flowering anyway (Autumnal equinox is the last week of September} ?

What do I do? They’re outside plants and has been from day one.

Keep taking care of the plant. You can use it in making oil or edibles they will be some smoke there a pain to trim.


Welcome to the community ! If your Miracle Grow potting soil has time-released fertilize. Every time you water it releases nitrogen and can cause you problems. If possible I would try to transplant into cannabis friendly soil. Just my thoughts good luck.


In addition to the (probable) revegetation issue, I see what looks like insect damage in a few areas. I would remove the damaged leaves, inspect them top and underside, and dispose of them well away from your grow. Then I’d wash the plant(s) with citric acid and water (1:20 or weaker) and/or Dr. Bronner’s unscented. Then I’d put up sticky cards in the enclosure, and treat the plant(s) with BT.


Now that you pointed it out I went back and blowed the picture up , good catch. That would be considered a trained eye. :+1:

Thank you, I’ll start right away.


Ok… let start with a couple questions?
Is that the only strain you are growing?
Are any of the other plants flowering this early as its not even August yet? And you are way lower than me on the :earth_americas:
Yes some flower early but this particular plant is exibiting a latent gene. I see out of focus plants in yhe rear are they doing this too?

Hi, thank you in advance.
So yes, you are correct I have 3 different strains in the back with not much foliage and they started to flower a couple of weeks ago.


White queen is growing in the background

so were all of these plants started outdoors? Or were they started under lighting and brought outdoors?
The regen pkant seems like it has some ruderalis gene in it? Wierd.

I am a beginner but I am a voracious reader. From what I have learned is you should stay away from Miracle-Gro.


thank you and yes i started in miracle grow potting mix, i made the mistake of using only the miricle grow potting mix, the first two plants seems fine up until flowering then stopped it could be because of the heat. also i dont know what i should do with the 2 that are flowering already… should i leave it or try to transplant to regular soil from happyfrog. im confused on what i should do to make the best out of my situation.

Personally transplant, I would try to get out of the Miracle Grow. Looking at the picture are you in cloth bags or plastic bags?

Sorry I only had 20 posts then I was locked out. When I bought them they were a mere 3 inches, so I had them inside under a light (maybe 12-14 hours max) when they grew about 6-8 inches. I repotted them and kept the in my greenhouse.
