bought a flowering clone / no new nodes?
    #621075 - 05/02/12 12:56 AM (6 years, 1 month ago)

hey guys.  2nd grow here.  I bought a GDP clone at a shady dispensary.    Thing is, it had a tiny little (pinky tip-sized) bud on the top.  I didn't know that this was bad at the time.

anyhow, it's been vegging for 4 weeks now under 4CFLs and has grown no new nodes or branches.  Just grows some fan leaves which then wilt off.    Has a very skinny single node.    it smells strongly of bud still and has lots of hairs.

is there any chance that it's gonna revert to veg or grow some branches?       

again, I bought it fully rooted and put it under 18/6 lighting.  It has been exactly 30 days now.

one thing i'm well aware of is that the pot is too large. (3gal)  I've compensated by watering it more often at the base of the stem so existing roots get more water.

yeah yeah, its a f-ed up grow.  Just trying to get some bud out of it before i get around to buying another clone and starting over.

other notes
*organic kellog's potting soil.  NO nutes or fertilizer to speak
*unknown ph temps and humidity.  temps max at 80s if i had to guess. in an unairconditioned closet with a PC fan running over the lights.
*4 26W cfls.  2 daylight / 2 warmlight

Hold on there man.  You're exacerbating the situation by watering it MORE.  That is NOT the thing to do.  You need to water is LESS.  The plant will throw roots out and access the other areas of the soil.  I put fresh clones into 3 gallons of soil with no issues.  You just don't water it for awhile.

It will start to revert back into vegetative state.  But you need to get the other parameters in check.  Stop overwatering, let the soil get nice and dry.  Make sure the pH of the water you give it is 6.5-7.  No nutrients besides something like Liquid Karma.  And patience.  Reverting back to veg can take time.

Dude she isn't as young as she use to be.

ah okay.  I only recently started watering it more.  originally had watered every 4 days or so.  (poked the soil down about 3 inches with my finger until it felt dry).

i started this extra watering when the plant felt dry one day and I deduced that it had no root growth.    I will stop this watering regimen again though.  thank you very much
