    Hey everyone… I'm a medical marijuana patient (neurological issue), a failry cool chick and I'm new to the site. This is my second plant and first post so, hello. :) I know there are a ton of post on how to tell if your plant is a hermie but after a couple hours of looking at everyone elses examples I'm still confused. The more I look at her the most cross eyed I feel and I don't know what I'm looking at. :oops: In the past few days I'm noticing a change in my plants development that I can't identify. Any feedback is much appreciated.

    Purchased a mature G13 Clone from a dispensary about 55 days ago.
    She's been in 12/12 for about 25 days.
    She has a 3 leaf mutation... I may be saying that wrong but her leaves only produce three blades, for the most part.
    I've been using Tiger Bloom in each watering (about 1 teaspoon per gallon)
    I treated her with neem oil to fix a gnat problem a few weeks ago.

    I recently harvested a less than stellar green crack plant so now I'm here humbly to ask for advice. Attached pictures. I'm hoping they are helpful but I can take more if it helps. Thanks so much!

    To be honest its probably a bit too early to know for sure, but from what I'm looking at it looks just like your plant is budding. I saw what I thought (could be) male balls, but I reckon that the bud itself is just looking like that in its early development. If you have a clone it should be a genetic copy of its mother plant so unless they gave you a clone of a hermie plant I think you're probably fine. Turn those frowns upside down and get psyched for your plant, I think she looks great! Either way even a hermie plant will have buds on it, and it will give you seeds so you can grow again.

    first of all, if you have microsoft paint, it was a free program that came on my computer, you can always use that to resize the pix much smaller.. just pick the resize option, do pixels, and play around till you find the one that works for you..
    secondly, i don't see any signs of hermie on your baby.. simply looks like normal bud growth to me from what i can see in your pix.. if you were to have a hermie plant, you'd see the female flowers, the buds, but than you'd also see what looks like a bunch of bananas growing where a branch comes to the main stem, the nodes.. they really do look like a bunch of banana's in reality.. small ball like clusters that are hard to mistake once you get a good idea of what to look for..
    for being in flowering for only about 20sum days, your plant looks perfectly fine imho.. keep up whatever you've been doing thus far.. :)

    That is defiantly a lady, no balls there, I ve had my share of herms. Good luck with the grow

    That's such a relief! Thanks so much. My other plant was much thinner and the buds were very small so I think maybe I'm mistaking the "fluffiness" for lack of a more intelligent phrasing as turning hermie. I hope so because my other plant while it's still better than most LA "street" weed leaves a lot to be desired when you've been going to collectives for over a year and buying from people who know what they're doing. lol Thanks again.

    well different strains have different bud types zombiek.. say for ex, indicas will have nicely dense, tight nugs, and sativa's on the other hand, tend to be longer and whispier... this isn't always true of course, but it's a pretty good rule of thumb..
    so if you're growing two different strains, you can expect the growth to look different on the both of them for sure..

    It's kinda hard comparing trouble-shooting forum photos and that's probably why. They don't look the same. :) I really appreciate you guys. Thanks

    looks like reveg to me see all the sigle leaf blades? check for light leaks

    shnkrmn Well-Known Member

    Yup. You said you purchased a 'mature' g13 clone. By mature what did you mean? lots of pistils? I'll bet that cutting was taken from a plant already in flower and then you vegged it for 30 days under 18/6 or something and it revegged. When mj does this the leaves become juvenile again, diminishing in the number of blades until it has revegged completely when it will start producing normal leaves once again.

    These are two clones that are in the midst of revegging; see the three leaves?


    If you use RIU's photo uploader, it resizes your pix automagically.

    Ah ha! Light leaks! I'm sure it's one of many newbie mistakes but there is a new light leak coming from the old school door knob. Had to wait till night but sure enough, that really helps. Thank you!

    that banana shaped sack on the bud looks different I've only seen round sacks on my girls with to hairs coming out of it. I don't know is that a sign?The best pic sorry. I found a couple in the pic.
