Hi fellow growers,
I have just recently started a grow with a few untested strains. Among these I have VeryBerry (Blueberry x Strawberry) from Green Hornet Seeds. They are two days old today. I planted three, all of which germed with some strange kinks, two of which have seemingly begun a normal growth pattern. The third is clearly a whorled phyllotaxy. Below is a pic of her yesterday just germed. Tomorrow I'll take another pic, but she has quite a different aspect today, three well defined leaves and three dicotiledons. Here she is:
I'd like to ask some of you more knowledgable growers and breeders more information regarding this "mutation". First off...is it desirable? I've read threads here and there, some of which claim yes, some claim no, some people say the male/female ratio is heavy on the male side, some say its a characteristic which makes for excellent breeding, others stating they are heavily prone to hermies, others saying they are difficult to grow to maturity.
Can you guys help me out? When you didn't take marijuana botany 101 in college and have limited knowledge of the whole genetics deal all this conflicting info can get your head spinning.
Thanks for the help all!
