Triploid Shark Shock

Hi, I purchased some seeds from Mr Nice for the first time, I started growing the Shark shock ones, and after a week or 2 I just found 2 Triploid plant on the same packet o_O.

Triploids are plants with extra chromosomes that develop extra leaves, so each node those plants develop 3 leaves instead of 2 as normal.

I post a pic from internet for you to see what I mean, maybe I can put a pic of mines if some of you are interested.

Also I got 2 plants from 1 seed on the same packet, still both alive.

I'm reading a little about triploids right now, it is not common, it is said that they can produce better and more thc amount.

I will refer you to this old thread: http://www.mrnice.nl/forum/7-plants-plant-extracts/6957-tripod-plants.html

Sorry MJ, not trying to be an arse here, but triploid may or maynot be the correct term for that plant. There is no way of knowing without doing a lab test on it. Haploid refers to a single set of chromosomes, diploid refers to the normal state of 2 sets of chromosomes, and triploid refers to a state of having 3 sets. The 3 leaves per node thing may or may not be a triploid, but simply having 3 leaves is no guarantee of that. There is some debate still about how to refer to these things, personally I always use the term trifoliar (3 leaves). It would seem that the trait is linked to a higher than normal rate of auxin production coupled with an additional gene for the production of leaves.
A plant I grew from seed recently has (or, at least, had) three leaves per node like that. It is a F2 of Ganesh x KC 33.

I have had a few pop up over the years. Most turned out to be male and the few females I got turned out to be nothing more significant than a novelty. Some develop two main stems without being topped and some revert back to a normal growth pattern. As for the higher potency..well we live in hope but I have never found this to be the case.
