Bought Skittles x glue and 80% of them have a mutated look and grow very slow. Has anyone else had problems with mutation? Every seed germinated and grew to about third node before I started to notice the leaves were smaller and crinkly. This never happened to seeds I germinated from commercial bud I bought from the street.
Dosent sound like mutation to me. If you have that many doing the same thing i would be looking at environmental or nutritional factors first.
This may be your answer here. You never know what you are getting a lot of times, no matter what kind of seeds you procure and from where. Personally, I’ve never had any trouble from the seeds here, most of the time it was user error. I’m finding the seeds here are very true to their descriptions as written out or described.
What’s your set up, that may help others comment purposely? If you have pictures, that would be great, but please use plain lighting. It’s hard to assess properly with colored lighting.
Thank you and glad to meet you!
@Oschino It might just be that the particular strain you are growing is nute sensitive. I have GDP and Blue dream that are loving FF Ocean forest but the 2 CBD AC/DC I planted are showing nute burn. As they get older one looks to be recovering but the other continues to struggle. Absolutely nothing done differint with any of them.
Do you have pictures like to see them Orlando
I have them starting in my basement wintertime so it’s kinda cool. The temperature wasn’t getting above 70 degrees for a while so I recently put a kerosene heater to increase the radiant heat. It’s actually pretty dry in my basement considering the outside humidity is 84.
So, others will come in soon, I’m sure. Bear with me as my brain is petering out for the night. A kerosene heater is super drying normally. Back when my parents had one, I remember everything dried out (sinuses, plants, children), which is why we always had a pot of water on top of it. I’m not recommending that manuever as that was a long time ago. What’s your Room Humidity sitting at? Have you insulated the basement? What’s the temperature now?
What I see are two things I think first it seems like you need your light closer and a little more intense to stop the stretch And I would bury that thing down so the leafs are only about an inch above the dirt. And then it also looks like the dirt is very moist you maybe over-watering a little bit I’m not sure of your schedule. But I am also a closet grower there are professionals on this site who will definitely be able to help you out. But until they chime in that’s my opinion LOL
The tent has two 315 CMH lamps. I thought I could move them closer but when I use my FC meter it says the lighting is perfect. Those plants in the tent are 2 weeks into flower and I’m pretty sure I over watered them while in the basement. My issue is with the first picture. The crinkly small plant. The flower plants in the tent are the survivors of 8.
I do put the pot on top. I’m just trying to use the best heating source that isn’t electric or blowing direct hot air.
The current temp is 75 with a 55% humidity. I tried to post video but I think it’s not allowed on site.
I am not familiar with this pheno, but I found this:
Even so, this plant entails work in ensuring that lower branches are well-maintained to allow for sufficient air flow. As is the case with most standard indoor grow rooms, plants placed side-by-side restricts the circulation of air and thus could cause moisture to build up. Consequently, not only does it hinder the transpiration process but also encourage the growth of molds.
@dmtscravey DMT sounds about right. I dont know about your lights but if my plant was stretching like that one I would transplant deeper as DMT suggested. With what sounds like near 60s temps at night with high humidity when it was in the basement just leaves too many variables to make a fair comparison to other grows. It should recover though it looks like it wants to live.
Lol thanks. The baby is in my veg room in the basement and the flowering plants are in my tent on my second floor.
@Oschino sorry thought the little one in the tent was the plant in question. Turned out (now that i figured out how to blow up the picture) its not even a plant. I will edit out the little plant part in previous post to keep future readers from wondering what on earth i was talking about.
@Oschino looks like excess phosphorus causing some lock out to me. It can cause micros and potassium to get locked out too and it can cause some strange burning twisted growth and “blisters” on leaves etc…
Have you been feeding the seedling or did you transplant into hot soil?
It looks like everyone is hitting on the apparent issues. Way too much stretch for a seedling ad that is “LIGHT” issue. It can be distance or not enough BLUE.
Deformity - definitely a nutrient issue here. Back to basics and follow up on MDBuds. Maybe transplant to a new clean, untreated medium. A simple bag of any Organic soil will be enough, with only water, to bring the seedling back into the fold.
As far as the crop, please provide some individual pics of each plant separately to better see conditions. It is a little hard to make recommendations if we cant really see the objects up close and personal. I see a few things that I want to have a closer look at…and what are the strains so we can see if the colors are inherit to genus of environment
I used indacanja from purple cow organics and I do believe it came in very hot… Also had some fungus gnats. Soil instructions were to add water only so that’s what I did. I believe it’s soil related as well, especially after a visit to the local hydro store and some conversation. Thanks broski and thank you to everyone in the chat:pray:t3:
