-1st time grow, Healthy 14 week old plant, 5 weeks into flowering-
Everything started off without a hitch, my little girl became a woman & then I broke her back (main stem about half way up the plant), the repair went fine, this is not why im posting.
Im posting because about 3 days after the brake I started noticing the lower branches growing as if I topped the plant. Now im affraid I may have destroyed my plants full bud potential or at least set it back a few weeks.
My guess is I have changed the chemistry of the plant & forced it into some strange median between vegging & flowering.
If anyone knows what is going to happen to my plant, or what I could do to correct this, please let me know.
- Should I go ahead & early ripen?
- Or should I just wait it out & hope for the best?
- Is my plant going to stress itself from the injury & produce less potent buds?
- I read somewhere about "Zero Colas" which are long colas with little potency, is this what I have now?
I have some pictures of the growth, what gets me is why do some of my colas grow normal & others are growing weird.
(Sorry about the pics their all out of focus, my camera sucks!)
--The first pic is of a normal cola on the same plant as the other pics. Notice the dark green leaves with white hairs protruding above the crystal coated vegetation.
--The second & thrid pics are the strange growths first from the top the second from the side. You can see the bulk at the bottom where the bud stopped growing normally. Notice the non crystallized light green flat single leaves that protrude above the white hairs.
--The last pic im a little lost for words as I started noticing little bundles of extremely large Pistils (3/16" long) with 2 orange hairs each, located directly in the center of the pic.
