Hey guys so I have 2 plants growing, one that grows on its own and one I take care of in a separate area, my question is why does the well taken care of plant have 3 fingers and the one I don’t take care of is growing 5 fingered leaves
The well taken care of plant (except for small nutrient deficiency)
And then the one growing by itself with no care
Do you see the 5 fingers? Why is my good plant only having 3 fingers?

Do you know the strain? Some strains grow with just 3 leaves, and it could also be that the plant is still just young. It’s rare but I dont think its anything to worry about
Don’t worry about it dude. Plants do this all the time. Any strain can exhibit 3 fingered leaves. Lots of them kick out 1 bladed leaves once in a while if stressed or revegged. Nothing to stress about dude.
Also most seedlings kick out 3 blades before then kicking out 5 on the next chute. If it’s a seedling then that’s the reason. The next will have more blades

The weed you get it from look like it was compressed? If so it’s probably brickweed with a handful of different plants buds compressed into one pound bricks or something of that nature. Could easily be from two different plants.

Three Leaf Weed Plant – Cannabis Growth Problem
Three Leaf Weed Plant – Cannabis Growth ProblemSometimes with clones or from seed, you will encounter a cannabis plant with irregular growth. Stress is the primary cause for a one leaf or three leaf weed plant. It usually is the result of a plant that started flowering, stopped and reverted back to vegetative growth. Photoperiod fluctuation will not only stress your plant out, but it will also diminish your harvest potential dramatically. To avoid this situation, indoor growers should employ a good timer. Timers are cheap but are very important for maintaining a stable photoperiod for your plant. If you are an outdoor grower, look for light sources like patio lights or street lamps that might be affecting your grow.Like I mentioned above, single blade leaves or a three leaf weed plant is primarily caused by a fluctuation with photoperiod lighting. While rare and unlikely, other factors such as heat stress and bugs can also lead to this phenomenon. However, most cases occur because of plants with photoperiod stress. On the other hand, certain strains are more prone to irregular growth. OG’s and Skunk’s tend to demonstrate this characteristic most often; though I wouldn’t go as far as declaring them a 3 leaf cannabis strain.We avoid this problem by maintaining a stable photoperiod environment. Sometimes we employ the Gas Lantern Routine when vegging our plants outdoors. This trick works great for almost all strains, but we have experienced the rare exception. Although very rare, some plants are more prone to flowering than others and will flower despite using the Gas Lantern Routine.If your plant is experiencing any type of irregular growth, do not take clones. Always take clones from healthy, stable mothers! Gardeners looking to clone a plant with one or three fingered leaves should wait for normal vegetative growth to resume before doing so. To increase the odds of your plant resuming regular growth, place in a stable environment. Make sure you plant gets enough light, water and fertilizer. Some gardeners claim that plants that are forced to re-veg never quite get the yield of the original. Probably because one and three leaf plants tend to produce stringy loose buds. If your plant has 3 leafs, looks healthy and is flowering, I would recommend staying on course. At that point, there is really nothing you can do that late into flower.ConclusionI hope this short blog helped a little. Lastly, if you have any questions please post them in the comment section.

What Cannabis Leaves Can Tell You – RQS Blog Back to Grow: Up to 50% Off Seeds + More – Buy Now Every cannabis cultivator needs to be able to interpret the signals their weed leaves send out. If you can quickly understand and treat your plant’s health issues, you’ll enjoy robust plants and fantastic yields. Here, we break down each problem expressed by the leaves of your weed plants, and teach you how to treat and prevent them accordingly. A guide to reading your cannabis leaves and treating your plant’s health issues. Contents: Functions of the weed leaf Types of cannabis leaves Fan and sugar leaves What can you learn from the number of leaflets? Reading the signs of cannabis plant health issues Yellow cannabis leaves Curly leaves Dry and crispy Wilting leaves Coloured leaves Holes and discolouration Weird patterns and patches What can be done with cannabis fan leaves and sugar leaves? What can leaf colour tell you about thc and cbd levels? Plant diseases, nutrient deficiencies, pest infestations, and many other growing problems display clear symptoms in the leaves of the cannabis plant. In this guide, we cover the various plant issues that can manifest in cannabis leaves. We’ll let you know how to read the signs so you can quickly identify and fix the most common cannabis growing problems. Functions Of The Weed Leaf As it is with many other plants, leaves are key components of a cannabis plant’s life support system. The green pigment chlorophyll allows leaves to act as solar panels. This sunlight-gathering role, as you probably know, is essential to photosynthesis. The underside of the leaves are covered in tiny stomata, microscopic holes that open and close like a door. Carbon dioxide goes in, oxygen and water go out. The leaves can also absorb nutrients to feed the cannabis plant in a process known as foliar feeding. Types Of Cannabis Leaves There are three main types of cannabis. These are often officially lumped together under the name Cannabis sativa L.; for practical purposes, though, it helps to make distinctions between sativa, indica, and ruderalis plants. That being said, most cannabis you encounter these days is a hybrid of two or three of these types. Thus, what you will typically see in your grow room are weed leaves that express a mix of traits. There can be 3, 5, 6, 9, or 11-point leaves, and they come in shapes ranging from thin and slender to wide and round. Sativa Sativa leaves are long and slender-fingered, with some developing as many as 13 fingers. Usually, sativa plants will have a lighter, lime green shade, indicating a relatively low amount of chlorophyll. It is believed that reduced chlorophyll is partly responsible for the longer flowering period of sativa strains. Indica Indica leaves are short and wide, typically with 7–9 fat fingers. These leaves are even larger when they belong to the heavier indicas of Afghan origin. Healthy indica leaves are marked by their darker, deeper shade of green. This is a sign of the leaves containing more chlorophyll, which is believed to accelerate the bloom cycle of indica varieties. Ruderalis Ruderalis leaves are quite thin and only develop 3–5 slender fingers. Most growers describe them as comparable to the leaves of young sativa plants, both in shape and colour. These plants are special, though, as they have evolved to flower independent of the hours of light they receive. Fan And Sugar Leaves Aside from the leaf types corresponding to sativa, indica, or ruderalis cannabis, we can also differentiate leaves depending on where they’re found on the plant. The largest leaves on the cannabis plant, with the typical fingered shape, are called fan leaves. The other type of leaves, which are small…
fan leaves with 3 leaves – THCFarmer
fan leaves with 3 leaves EAR #1 can anyone tell me what it means when there are only three leaves on a fan leaf, as opposed to the regular 5 or 7?:worried Hashmasta-Kut Moderator pimpin strain hoarder #3 thats prob just how it is my partner has a strain like that and its bomb buffalobubble #4 Im having the same issue too. My leaves are shriveling and curling a little bit too. buffbuds #5 it could also mean someone took a clone that had been off of a revegging plant. often, re-vegging starts with mishapen flower pods, then shoots with single blade leaves grow from the mishapen flower sites, then those shoots elongate, produce blades with 3 leaves, then after a node or three, they produce 5 points, and may continue to produce more points the more modes you let it grow out. I try to take only clones with 7 or 9 leaf points, it makes the plants grow more vigorously than those that need to re veggitate longer. EAR #6 i’ve heard that three leaf fan leaves were gentically made that way. beneficial because it lets more light through to the whole plant as opposed to a 7 or 9 leaf fan leaves. EAR #7 i was worried that maybe the three leaf fan leaves meant that the clones came from a mom that was cloned too many times, as in degradation. any thots? buffbuds #8 oh, I’ve had moms like that that friends raped. TLC always made the genetics better (after a LONG veg, then taking the primo clones, and vegging them as mothers) I wouldn’t worry, esp if they give great bud with fewer leaf points now. ReelBusy1 #9 oh, I’ve had moms like that that friends raped. TLC always made the genetics better (after a LONG veg, then taking the primo clones, and vegging them as mothers) I wouldn’t worry, esp if they give great bud with fewer leaf points now. A lot of misshapen 3 leaf fans and curled up leaves are usually a sign that the plant has undergone some major stress and usually means extreme heat or cold or nutes have stressed it. Worddd #10 Hey EAR, no worries about the 3 fingered leaves imo, as stated it’s most likely a sign that the mother of the clone or the clone itself has experienced some stress of some kind, could be several factor that have stressed it. So the only way to handle her is imo just to give her some veg-tlc, some nice conditions and time, and she’ll most likely bounce back to a more normal leaf pattern and general health. best greetings Worddd Sirius #11 As the plant moves from the veg into the flowering cycle the number of leaves decreases. You will notice a lot of colas have leaves with only one leaf.. (does that even make sense?). Some kind of stress must have triggered the plant into thinking it was getting ready to flower. but on the other hand,…

10 Common Marijuana Leaf Problems and How to Fix Them
10 Common Marijuana Leaf Problems and How to Fix Them Cannabis growers, especially beginners, are going to face pests and problems with their marijuana plants over the course of their grow. It’s just part of the deal and is something you can minimize as you get better at growing. Luckily, cannabis plants are extremely resilient and can withstand a harsh environment or an invader for some time. This is convenient because it gives you time to figure out what the issue is and treat it before your plant is completely ruined. Don’t freak out if something does start to happen to one of your plants, as it’s not the end! The best course of action is to view the signs and symptoms on your plant and then compare them to the symptoms listed below. Once you find the right match, continue your research and follow the instructions for how to cure it and within a few days you should see signs of recovery! Under Watering & Over WateringUnderwatering and overwatering are the two most common problems among beginner growers and are also very easy to fix. If you are underwatering a cannabis plant, you will notice the leaves start to droop and they will seem as if they are hanging. Growth will also slow down. If you notice these signs on your plants, all you’ll need to do is water them more frequently and give them more per watering. If your leaves are drooping, give them a quick watering and within 30 minutes they will be standing right back up nice and perky!When you are overwatering the plant, it will cause the leaves to curl downwards and they will seem very rigid in tight because they are so full of water. Growth will also slow down tremendously and if you don’t fix it quickly, it can lead to root rot. When overwatering occurs, it means you’ll want to water less frequently. The best method for deciding when to water is by checking how dry the soil is. If it is dry all the way around and inch deep, then it is ready to water. If not, you still need to wait. With an overwatered plant, let it dry out for a few days and then resume a more appropriate watering schedule. Nutrient BurnNutrient burn is another common issue beginners and even expert growers often face, as they tend to get overzealous with feeding their plants. When it comes to nutrients, less is always more! Nutrient burn is essentially what happens to your plants when you’ve been feeding them too strong of a nutrient mix, and/or too frequently. The edges of your leaves will begin to brown and look crispy like they were burned, and growth will slow down drastically. The burning always starts at the very tip of the leaves, so look out for that subtle clue. If your plant begins to show signs of burn, hold off on feeding nutrients for a week or two and then you can resume. This will allow the plant to flush out the high quantity of nutes.Light BurnWhenever the tops of your plants are too close to the grow lights above, it will cause the leaves to yellow and burn. The easiest way to spot this problem is to look…

The Stages of Cannabis Growth | CleanLeaf Blog
The Stages of Cannabis Growth Cannabis growth is made up of a series of stages that plants undergo during their lifecycle. Each stage during the cannabis cultivation process requires its own unique demands, including different levels of light, water, and nutrients. It can take anywhere from 4 to 8 months to grow a cannabis plant, this varies based on where you’re growing. If you have an indoor grow room, your plant has the ability to flower after only a few weeks! The quality of your plant depends on your knowledge of the cannabis growth stages and the lifecycle of your plants. Cannabis Growth Timeline 1. Germinating: 1-7 days 2. Seedling: 2-3 weeks 3. Vegetative: 2-8 weeks 4. Pre-Flowering: 1-2 weeks 5. Flowering: 6-8 weeks 6. Harvesting 1. Germinating Seeds To effectively germinate, you must ensure that seeds are mature enough. If your seeds are immature they will likely not germinate. If your seeds have reached maturity they will appear shiny and light to dark brown and will be dry and hard to the touch. If your seeds are underdeveloped they will feel soft and appear white or green. To germinate, keep your seed in a wet, dark place. Some growers may keep it in a cup of water or wrapped in a wet paper towel and set inside of a cabinet. Exposing seeds to light and moisture stimulates hormones and gives the growth process a boost. A single root, called the radicle, will shoot downwards as the new stem grows upwards pushing the seed out of the soil. Unlike common marijuana leaves, two rounded cotyledon leaves will sprout from the stem as the plant breaks away from the seed’s protective casing. These cotyledon leaves gather energy from sunlight so that the plant can become stable and grow bigger. Once the roots develop, the first true leaves grow and the plant is not in its seedling stage. 2. Seedling Stage The seedling growth stage is fragile and plants must receive 18-24 hours of sunlight, moist soil, and mild humidity to grow rapidly. Because the seedling has such a small root system, it’s important to not drown it by overwatering. Once a plant becomes a seedling, it will develop more traditional-looking cannabis leaves. A marijuana leaf is made up of anywhere between 3 to 13 fingers. The leaves produced from a sprout will appear with only one rigged finger. With new growth, marijuana leaves will develop more fingers. Mature marijuana plants will typically have between 5 and 7 fingers per leaf but can reach up to 13. The first fingered leaves can grow up to 4 inches above cotyledon leaves and will have the notorious serrated edges. This set of leaves grow in pairs on opposite sides of the stem. Cannabis plants are treated as seedlings until they develop leaves with a full number of fingers. Healthy seedlings should be short with thick vegetation and their leaves should appear vibrant green in color. During this stage, growing environments must be kept clean and free…
Indica, sativa, or hybrid? How to read a cannabis leaf
Indica, sativa, or hybrid? How to read a cannabis leaf While there are countless strains of cannabis to choose from, there are only four known “types” of cannabis: the well-known indica and sativa, along with the lesser-known ruderalis, and finally the hybrid, which is a combination of the others. Each has its own physical characteristics that make it identifiable to growers. Most notably, the leaf. In this guide to reading cannabis leaves, you’ll learn how to identify each type of leaf just by looking at them. We’ll also share insider tips on the different ways you can use marijuana leaves. What does an indica leaf look like? First named in 1785 for a kind of marijuana that grows in India, the indica leaf is short and stout, possessing between seven and nine wide, finger-like structures. Steven Somoza of Hydroponics, Inc. in Los Angeles, California, has more than eight years of cannabis cultivation experience and shared with Weedmaps, “Indica-dominant strains tend to have a stocky bush-like appearance, typically developing fat and wide leaves.” The indica leaf’s short stature makes it a good choice of cannabis to grow indoors. You can spot an indica leaf if you pay attention to color, as indicas are a deep shade of green, which signifies a high chlorophyll content. Pure indica strains may include Hindu Kush, Purple Kush, and Afghani Kush, but pure strains of any kind are rare and challenging to find. The indica leaf is short and stout, possessing between seven and nine wide, finger-like structures. The slender sativa leaf has more fingers than the indica leaf, sometimes as many as thirteen. What does a sativa leaf look like? In contrast to indica plants, sativa plants fare better outdoors due to their exceptional height (up to 12 feet). The slender sativa leaf also has more fingers than the indica leaf, sometimes as many as thirteen. In contrast to indica leaves, sativa-dominant genetics “typically grow lengthy, can take longer to mature, and develop skinnier leaves” according to Somoza. Besides size and finger differences, you can distinguish between an indica and a sativa leaf by the latter’s lighter shade of green. Pure sativa strains may include Jack Herer, Panama Red, and Durban Poison, but connoisseurs debate whether these strains are truly pure or simply sativa-dominant. Jack Herer, for example, may be 80% sativa and 20% indica depending on the plant. What does a ruderalis leaf look like? Originating in Russia and Central Asia, ruderalis is a separate species of autoflowering cannabis that grows in the wild. It is shorter than sativa and indica, sometimes only reaching a foot or two tall. Ruderalis leaves are thin and each plant only exhibits three to five delicate fingers. Russian Auto CBD is one of the only known pure ruderalis strains, as most that contain this species are hybrids. Finding pure marijuana strains is no easy task these days and hybrids are ubiquitous. Hybrid leaves tend to be harder to identify as they may favor their parent strains in different ways. White Widow, Cannatonic, Blue Dream, Gorilla Glue, Chemdawg, and Sour Diesel are some of the many popular hybrid weed strains available. Why is it important to know the difference between cannabis leaves? The ability to distinguish between cannabis leaves, particularly the indica and sativa varieties, is a useful tool for both new and seasoned growers. For starters, knowing how to read cannabis leaves gives cultivators insight into how well (or how poorly) their…
