Strange groth pattern

Recently dropped 3 Gelato autos and one is showing weird growth pattern.
It is sending out 3 leaves per node instead of 2.
Has anyone seen this trait before?
ps. the other 2 are normal.

Yes this is common mutation, there is a name for it but I don’t recall. Google can probably tell you if you’re curious.


Polyploidy. Technically a triploid when it spits out 3 instead of two.

My triploid ended up growing normally after the first two sets of nodes.



I have a strange looking gg4 auto seedling now. Started out with one cotyledon,first leaves are round and the new growth coming out of the top is twisted. Far as I can tell autos are prone to weird genetics/traits. Must be all the cross breeding required to make them.

Thanks mate.
Did it eventually flower normally?


Haven’t flowered her yet but I’m sure she’ll be just fine when she does.
