My latest little freak...

    We all get mutant seedlings from time to time. I've had some that were born without cotyledons, ones with 3, and even one with none, but this is a first. This little girl has a single cotyledon that looks like 2 conjoined, and a single leaf coming out of the center. It's been like this for over a week, so I'm thinking it may just stall and die. Excuse the blurry pic. My camera is terrible and my photography is worse. The strain is Dinafem White Widow. IMG_0117-1.jpg

    That’s pretty wild.
    Does it look like there’s a line of connect a dots where your supposed to cut with a razor

    cindysid Well-Known Member

    No dots, but there does seem to be a center line. The one leaf isn't serrated at all. when I looked closely earlier, it appeared to have an extremely tiny second leaf forming. I never throw out my freaks. They usually don't amount to much, but I'm always curious to see how they will develop. I have even managed to get clones off of some that turned out to be perfectly normal plants.

    I’ve had a few weird ones aswell but I haven’t seen that particular prob.
    I’m not sure what I’d do
    On one hand it may grow out of it as is on the other it may die and I’d wish I’d have cut it and tried to help.
    Terrible dilemma
    The freaks always make it interesting cus u just never know

    That's cool, new one on me, I love the mutants. Always joke I'm going to find a 40% THC mutant one of these days :)

    This mutant has been flowering for 14 weeks. I was going to harvest it with the others to see how it smoked and decided instead to keep it with the house plants.

    Thought some of my fellow "freak" fans might want to see an update....She sure is slow, but she's starting to develop. I will continue to monitor and report her progress.

    This seedling caught my attention, the cotyledons were tightly held together. Wanted to see if it would free itself with no interference.
    Last picture was taken today.

    Cool! I've had several freaks lately, since I've planted so many seeds. I had one born with no cotelydons at all and it's a perfectly normal seedling now, so I have hope for this one. If I was in a hurry I might cull it and start over, but the bloom room is full anyway, so I want to see what she'll do!

    I think the seed shell does this. Its not a mutation but a deformity

    I'm not sure which plant you're referring to, but I think mine is definitely a mutation.

    Where as mine is deformed from its struggle to open.

    if a plant has mutant dna i always grow it out, i figure those are the highest chance of stumbling upon the next mutant monster strain that i would get to name!

    Hey sometime's you find an odd plant that performs in ways you like by doing so.

    I have one like this myself. It's my plant I love to hate.
    Did a pheno hunt.
    Had a runt like yours.
    One Cot leaf.
    Also took around a full week or so longer to break soil.
    Was slow as can be getting started.
    Then I noticed it STARTED with alternating branches.
    But it stayed short as can be and compact while vegging.
    Took a few cuts along with it's sisters.
    It rooted faster than the rest by a few days. It'll seriously throw roots in 8-10 days in a shot glass of water.
    It's fast to root but a bit slow to take off after planted. After that it's smooth sailing.
    Won't branch for crap when LSTed. Scrogging is out of the question because of this. Topping is fine as long as it's evenly cut and or mainlined. But screw that.
    She absolutely kills it in SOG because it simply refuses to stretch. Pack a kiddy pool with 2 gallon pots. Veg her out to 10-12 inches and flip.
    Light feeder and pretty drought tolerant.
    The kicker is after I noticed she didn't stretch period.
    I did an isolated run and found her best feature.
    Little to no smell at all.
    6 weeks after flip and I'm blown away because I'm not having to use a scrubber.
    Can go up until chop no problem.
    She's also fully cloudy @ 65 days from flip. If you let it amber out with another 10 days or so it's couchlock city.
    Trimming is a breeze because they're plump fatty nugs from top to bottom.
    The smoke is also a nice stout indica. I've blown away a few Oregon and Colorado kiddies with it cause they weren't expecting it.
    The no stretch and little to no smell part I love.
    The no branching part I hate. Have to play the numbers game.

    I considered chucking that particular plant but set it to the side and "We'll see how it does".
    Those results aren't spot on typical I don't think. But it's my biggest success with keeping a straggler around.

    Here's the latest pic of my little freak. It's had an amazing recovery from it's original problems. I will continue to update as it grows and then flowers:
