bl0nd3 Posted January 18, 2015 Report Share Posted January 18, 2015 Some may already know, i wont go into details but my plants obtained extensive root damage and the roots had to be cut to aprox 15cm in length. I could of chucked out the plants and started again (infact iv already germinated a few seeds for a better, cleaner fresh start, but all those rotted away in the cocopeat pellets) ... BUT anyway since im now running low on seeds im glad i didnt completley give up on my original plants, and so far they are doing ok. I expected them to be slow growing ofcourse while the roots adjusted, and i gave it about a week before i was sure the plants were even going to survive. Its now been 3 weeks and the plants have been producing new mini leaves, but for somereason, no nodes, and once the mini leaves start to create a new node area it just dries out and dies..... so i basically have a healthy stem, with baby leaves on it. Up the top the plant is growing perfectly, nice healthy green, lots of foliage etc, but underneath this area, its pretty much a continuous cycle of baby leaves forming, drying out and dying. i tried trimming away the leafy growth that i thought may have been blocking light from getting to the lower parts, but removing leaves hasnt helped either. I want the plant to now start focusing on creating new "node branches" in the lower section of the plant, but i think all the plants energy is focused to the top area. Should i "Top" the plant off so it starts to focus on the lower areas? with the top, can i use it as a clone? with the plant that has the top removed eventually form a new "top"? underneath Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
