View Full Version : Any ideas about a 10th leaf?
08-28-2005, 06:28 PM
This is from one of the (now) "mystery" plants I have going....
Originally I was told the seeds were WhiteRhino, and then Frostbite. Well, from what I've seen of FB pics, it is definitely NOT that. Every one of them is totally indica, stout, bushy......and now a few leaves have done this.
Has anyone seen this happen before, and what, if anything does it mean?

i've seen that kinda mutation before,,, they are kinda cool.... usually not a big deal and don't seem to affect much.

very cool there ak. I havent seen that one before, I have had a few with three leaves coming out at each internode space instead of two, but never one like that. I'd take lots of pics of it cause that will prolly be a memorable plant.
Well i have seen three fingered leaves before but a tenth one that's new to me but it's cool,mother nature never cease to amaze us lol.Have a good grow.
it's an omen! sometime in the near future you will be well medicated ;)

i have seen that before, it does not have much effect on the plant either way... check out this GHPxAK, it had an actual bud growing from the same area.
i love those kewl anomalies, thanks for sharing

"it had an actual bud growing from the same area."
yeah that particular mutation is a trip, ain't it? i've had it on a few plants, most notably on 2 bullriders and on the sat dom pheno of the mandarin dream i grew.

infact here is a pic of one i found online clearly showing the mutation.

I've read alot of comments about White Rhino seeds showing signs of recessive mutations in both leaves and branching habit.
I currently have what I was told was a inbred Northern Lights plant that showed odd branching and leaf shapes during early growth. One of the earlier leaves has a similar double decker leaf to yours, but a smaller leaf is growing from the bottom of the other and the leaf curles downward arround it over the top.
As far as being concerned that depends on what your particular concerns may be. My N.L. plant is the most vigerous of the of those seeds so far and I really want a strong N.L. plant for seeds, but I've decided to wait until harvest to choose on using it for breading or not. If this is a mutation that affects potency, decission made.
Since cells with harmful mutations tend to be less vigorous than normal (healthy) cells, the mutation may be limited to only some cells and the healthier cells should (most likely) outcompete (outgrow) the others and become the dominant cells in the growing tip, producing all the growth from that point (level) on (up).
Just because my N.L. had odd growth in the beginning, doesn't mean the upper growth will have any problems now that growth is strong. It may have just been because the seeds are old and initial growth was stressed.
As long as your plants are not sterile, recessive leaf genes are not that uncommon and should otherwise be a problem in and of themselves.
Nice detailed photos. :)
Hope my webcam works that good.

Yeah I have found a few of those on one of my current plants, I thought it was pretty odd also.
