    So I popped the second bean of my 3 pack and it has turned out to be something of a fail. About half the plant ,the lower half , looks great..nice frosty dank solid looking buds, but the top of the plant was all scraggly, stemmy, ditch weed looking nonsense. I actually chopped the entire top of the two worst colas as they were just an eyesore, weren't even maturing and were wasting my time. I reckon I've lost between a half to an ounce because of it. I left one of the cruddy colas in tact as most of the way up it's ok looking then it just goes to shit right at the top.
    I'm going to blame ruderalis for this and I think it has somewhat put me off . Thankfully it looks like I'll pull at least 30 to 40 GS of good bud off this one so all's not lost.

    Good buds

    And an example of the shit it turns to at the top, the colas I chopped off were much worse looking

    Hmmm... well you do say that the ones you cut were worse. From the pics they do look thinner but not total shwag. Could be the ruderalis, could be stress...

    Honestly, doesn't seem thaaat bad.

    No Grow info given but looks like a combination of heat stress and too much fertilizer.

    Could have been heat stress tbf. But I've never had a plant go swaggy on me like this ever. But it did get pretty hot for a few weeks

    Im sure it could've been used for something than just chopping.

    But the good buds are really good

    Interesting! Can't tell if that's "foxtailing" caused by heat stress or just a bizarre pheno, but either way, nice save. I wouldn't have known how to turn that around. She's frosty af.

    Had a HSO Sour D auto grow similar at just the top cola. It was over 5 foot tall and at the very top of my tent. The extra heat up top caused it to foxtail abit. In the end she got really fat and looks great curing right now.
