Deformed New Growth

Recommended Posts

Got an issue with one of my plants where the new growth seems to be damaged/deformed/shrivelled?


GG Allin grown from seed (currently at about 9 weeks) in a soil/perlite/compost mix - spends days outdoors and under

CFL flouro for 4 hours each night to maintain veg.


While it has been a bit slow, the plant overall seems to be relatively OK - I've got x2 other plants (different strains) growing

right alongside this one (same age, soil, feeding/watering regime, etc ) which aren't experiencing this deformity issue ??


While I haven't seen any 'bugs' the damage reminds me somewhat of my cycads that intermittently have the new growth 'spears'

attacked by some type of moth/butterfly that apparently lay the lava into the new growth before it unfoils - and when it does unfoil

to new fronds the damage is done - altho can never find the lava/bugs!!


Anyone offer any suggestions to cause ??
