has anyone ever grown a plant that just will not alternate the nodes? this is the sign i look for for maturity, i started 3 dark strawberry seeds on march 15 and 2 have had alternating nodes for a month now the other one looks as if it has no intention of alternating........30 years and i have never experienced this one. thoughts?

"Cannabis seedlings have leaves that grow on opposite sides of the stem (decussate phyllotaxis), and only when the cannabis plants are getting ready to flower do the branches begin to alternate (distichois phyllotaxis). This phyllotaxis, or genetic branch pattern, occurs for both males and females. As the plant ripens, it released hormones that signal this change." -Ask Ed @ CC
