Pheno or mutant? Three branch per node plant

I’ve been pheno hunting a few strains and came across this blueberry plant that’s exhibiting something I’ve never seen.
When I cracked this seed it showed strange growth right out of the gate. It was very compact and I’m guessing the overgrowth overwhelmed the plant and it topped itself in the first few days. Then it split and the main stalk took off.

As it grew it became vigorous and at every node it’s putting out three sun leafs and three branches.
I have a few plants that show similar type of tree formation (without three branches) where no matter how much I pinch the stalk it has refused to grow out the branches until just recently. Ending up looking much like a palm tree.
I’m new to phenohunting and growing regular seeds, does that sound like the actions of a male or is that palm tree growth just a pheno style. I’m seeing it in blueberry, white widow and NL so figured the tree looking structure to be indicative of a male but was just musing.

more interesting has anyone seen the three branches on a plant or is this some kind of mutant and I wonder if it’s children will carry the trait. Could make for an interesting bud cluster. If I could breed three branches into a hybrid I’d be stoked.
Maybe it’s a one off
Any thoughts?

Looks like she grew out if it a bit? Strip those lowers and the top should be fine .
 
@Frimpong actually it’s about 14” tall and has about 6-7 branch nodes along the core stem where 4-5 have very healthy three branch clusters. If it’s going to grow out normal it sure doesn’t look like it’s made that decision yet.
Lights are off now but I’ll grab a better photo tomorrow.
Too bad if it does grow out of it.
Would be neat to have a mutant plant 🧟‍♂️

I have a king sherb that's still got the tripod going lol. Never grew out of it even after I topped it . It's not the best looki pheno but I am eager to see it finish. Hopefully your finishes strong

As a stimulant and a recovery booster ( if it was me , plants need it in the net and they are so fragile)Give her a mushroom compost and some alfalfa brew and Some kelp + weekly fungi and bennies and biocontrol


your plant won’t be bitching after that, if you want a all in one of that + more , Grow more Jump start 1-5ml (1ml on starting plants and 1ml foliar and 3ml for normal plants, if plant needs to “recover “ raise to 5ml) I’ve seen great sucess

Sometimes I forget I am an ass.

I think troisfoliate is tres cool. I have have only seen that like 5% or so, only a couple times. One was fierce to stay that way.
On this one, I snapped a branch clean off training a manifold.

Its all good. They divide very nicely~
" two for me, one for you. Two for me, one for you. "
 
Cool beans. Can’t wait to see what this odd plant does.
Here are a couple more photos.

She’s only about 4-5 weeks along and in another week I’ll repot her and the others and see what the spurt in growth does. I’m also moving them into a better growing environment as my seeding project has finished and they want to stretch.
