I'm in week 3 of flower. I've got a strange cola where it seems 2 stems have welded together. I've been pretty ruthless throughout veg doing a lot of pinching up and down all stems and topping twice. It seems to now be a cluster of 4 tops very close together with the stem as an oval shape. Could be I fimmed rather than topped which caused this. My space runs pretty humid at times from about 50 to 85 I've seen so I'm always worried about mould.

Chop the top bit now in week 3 or let it ride and keep an eye on mould?

Fasciation (pronounced /ˌfæʃiˈʃən/, from the Latin root meaning "band" or "stripe"), also known as cresting, is a relatively rare condition of abnormal growth in vascular plants in which the apical meristem (growing tip), which normally is concentrated around a single point and produces approximately cylindrical tissue, instead becomes elongated perpendicularly to the direction of growth, thus producing flattened, ribbon-like, crested (or "cristate"), or elaborately contorted, tissue.[1] Fasciation may also cause plant parts to increase in weight and volume in some instances.[2] The phenomenon may occur in the stemrootfruit, or flower head. Some plants are grown and prized aesthetically for their development of fasciation.[3] Any occurrence of fasciation has several possible causes, including hormonalgeneticbacterialfungalviral and environmental causes.

Cheers everyone. I'll keep it just for curiosity and update here. My amateur opinion is that the thicker the stem the more energy it can deliver to the buds. I could be wrong and there are other factors at play.
