What Im trying to do is ask how long til I will know the sex of the plants. They are in week 5 of growing and are about one foot tall. Im growing in dirt and using cfl's. I recently put two plants into flowering. Im using a 85 watt cfl. They are growing lots of leaves now and have 4 nodes. What do you guys think?
Usually around the 6th node you will begin to see preflowers. My last grow I had one show at 4 nodes. It can take up to the 8th node as well. When you see alternating nodes know that the preflowers are coming any day if they haven't come already.
yeah this is weird , my first grow , my plant is showing pistols with white hairs , its about 5 and half weeks old , but not that old considering i was using a shitty fluro light for the first like 4 and half weeks
Well if you are vegging and are waiting for pre flowers that usually takes between 6 and 8 weeks sometimes sooner depending on the strain. We had a plant show balls at 4 weeks old before in veg. Like KADE said if you put them into flower they usually don't show until week 1 or 2 depending on strain.
I usually have preflowers before flowering. You have to keep checking your uppermost nodes daily. They will show. Use a magnifying glass as well. If it looks like a little rabbit head its a boy. A girl will have a little teardrop shaped deal in the croth of the node, within a day or so of seeing that teardrop, you will have a hair,or two coming out. Keep us posted. This usually happens for me around week 4-5.
