How does this even happen?


This is my white widow fem and I have no idea how this branch has flattened on its own. I seen it start about half way through my veg period. I decided to just let it go. I’ve pulled allot of clones off this girl so she’s done a awesome job as a mother​:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face::partying_face:
I chopped that branch after starting her final cycle I’m kinda wishing I just let it go and see what happened but I guess for now I’m wondering HOW WHY and has anyone had or seen this.

I don’t know but I cannot wait to see if any of the clones behave the same way. Please keep this thread alive and let us know?

A hollowed out stem is the result from the plant undergoing Pith Autolysis to retrieve more carbon for photosynthesis in times it needs it. You can safely view a hollowed out stem as a pseudo Carbon deficiency and that there were times in the plants life cycle it needed more carbon.
With some plants, it is genetics. When that is the case, the plant needs SUPPORT to prevent it from collapsing / breaking

Awesome. I cut up the flat branch and this is what I found. Yes it did collapse. I need to see if and how I can prevent.

These are mother daughter pics with clones from the flat branch tree on the left in solo cups and the one on the right is sister plant and her daughters that was planted 2 weeks after the flat plant but both sets of clones cut at identical times. Flat tree clones are bushing just like the flat branch itself did.

if it is genetic, you do not need to prevent…they just need SUPPORT. Hollowed stems are / were a good sign not something bad. Carbon is added by having good organic soil and adding compost / mitochondria (beneficial bacteria)

The ww girls and their twin clone daughters. The one on the left is the flat branch but I chopped the flat branch off and the right is from same source but planted 2 weeks later.

The clones Hermed out so I had to chop and toss them. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth::face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

looks like somethings been eating it any deer or rabbits around

No these are all in tents indoors

I did notice the tips on the right side plants (toddlers), they show wind burn so you might want to lower fan speed or tilt up a little. Not sure you need that much airlfow as you have your plants very trimmed

Thanks man. I have been waiting for 3 months for this company to replace the 2 oscillating fans that only lasted 30 days a piece. I’m getting fed up.
