Last year i went through an extensive selective breeding program with 6 northern lights female clones and used a hermaphrodite tangerine dream. the tangerine dream i chose had a unique genetic mutation in which it had growing with from seed. when it was very young i noticed a small leaf appearing at the base of the petiole where the leaves meet. instead of a typical three leaves growing there were four. i thought nothing of it. a week later the leaf had turned into its own leaf and stem and began to develop other apexes, resulting in a whole other stem and producing a basic double plant growing from the first. it was as if i had pinched the plant and it duplicated itself. after noticing this beautiful disposition i thought it would be brilliant to see if i could establish more seeds with this genetic mutation. so i stressed the shit out of the plant with erratic temperature conditions aswell as light then gave it a bunch of zinc to set it right off. sure enough it became a hermaphrodite and i pollinated my 6 northern light clones with it.
so i got lots of seeds from the crop and instantly after drying the seeds i started 9. 5 out of 9 seeds had the same genetic mutation, showing the exact same traits as its mother/father the mutated tangerine dream.
i was wondering what this exactly is going on with this strain i have developed and if alot of people ever come across this mutation?
with the crazy yield and the wonderful size of plant i can see it easily being desirable strain for people to grow lots of bud in a small area
(the "V" part of the lower plant is where it naturally split off)
(mind you, you can see i have pinched the heads, but i did not split the plant)
- that plant is 5 weeks old
