If anyone can tell me why the bracts look so strange on these plants (they're short, stubby, squashed, indented, inwards curling, etc.) that'd be great. I haven't seen this before (with many many other plants) and it's a bit bizarre to me so I'm wondering what that means. Is it because of being feminized, inbred, or what?

So I can't really understand why the Black D.O.G is flowering so early. It looks okay. Is it gonna stay small or what? Otherwise I could use the space.

She just wasn't getting enough light so she bloomed early. If she's not getting full sun you can move her. Looks like she just started to bloom you may get a bit more growth out of her. Hard to say since depending on where you live it could be fall or spring in other parts of the world. Your night time temperatures are too cold. Once night time temperatures drop below 60 F root growth crawls to a stop. This is why your plants are growing so slowly. It's also possible you may be over watering which stunted your plants. Hope this helps.:+1:

Hi someguy, there is nothing to be concerned, those plants just different. I love those variations from strain to strain, from plant to plant. Its like the tomatoes, you can get yellow, striped black red ones and round oval , and in every size and taste. THe same in MJ...Your Girls looking nice and fiull of sticky trichomes, she would hit very hard ( iam guessing) . So enjoy mother natures diverity and iam very courious how she works out

Yes that is all about genetics pretty much. Example there are strains that grow foxtail buds and there are strains that grow dense buds. Nothing to ba alarmed about. The bracts have the densest covering of capitate-stalked resin glands of any plant part, and it is within the heads of these resin glands that the plant synthesizes and holds the highest concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes of any plant part. Bracts make up most of the substance and weight of high-quality marijuana buds.

Thats my reason for growing MJ... i see so many different plants in different shapes and looks. And they have one thing together they are just beautiful

@Mrs_Larimar,

It's very hard to find information about this sort of thing, which is why I just ask where I can. Humboldt hasn't even commented on this dairy, so I dunno, they're probably not particularly impressed with what I did to their seeds (growing them in an untested soil combination in what was still fairly poor conditions in late winter).

Honestly didn't expect the Black D.O.G to start flowering after 3-4 weeks though, and the Three Blue Kings (3rd seed I tried, after the other 2 were killed early from things I'm unsure of, birds, insects or debris, I dunno) had an issue with it's first set of leaves so it took a looooong time to recover and veg properly, but by then it was well into flowering already (it was about 10cm tall when it started flowering).

@Ssomeguy, well i think your grower question may be a good question for the breeders of th strain. and every " degeneration" tends to grow out ( dies) if it cant survive... it those organs dont work. ( and yes maybe its the plan, that they dont work)

@Mrs_Larimar,

Well, I don't find ruderalis particularly beautiful in general, but hey. Anyway, I tend to notice and think about things that a lot of other people seemingly don't. I'm interested in knowing what causes these inbred, feminized plants to look so strange compared to my wilder hybridized and african landrace plants, and *IF* the trunk/stem bracts are indicative of the plants being inbred and feminized. I can't compare to other commercial strains, so it's difficult for me to say.

@Cbalderson60,

Thanks for the info. I figured the stem/trunk bracts say quite a bit about the flowering (potential) of the plant considering they're "main" sex organs. I'm also thinking those bract seeds might have potential benefits/differences over other seeds?

But anyway, since they are VERY different strains yet have similar stem/trunk bract features I'm thinking my guessing that it's from inbreeding/feminization isn't far off., since out of more than 200+ very varying plants I've grown (other than offspring from my first grow, all of it unknown, from collected and bag seeds) not any of them show such bract features.

To be honest, the way the bracts on these two plants look in comparison to the other plants, seems "degenerate", if you know what I mean.
