If you look for the males, you will see them and know they are males at least a week before they are viable. Its been a while since I have had any males but it seems like, from the moment that they begin to grow male preflowers until they are actually viable to spit pollen is about 15-20 days. If you check them regularly then you will be able to tell the males long before they spit any pollen. :)

In my (short) experience, the thin tall ones are males, and the short fat ones are females. It has been true with all my plants so far.
(But you won't know for sure until you start flowering. Males get small balls while females get white hairs at the start of budding).

I have also seen many growers on youtube say this is a sign to look for before flowering when it comes to who you play favorites with, who gets the best spots in your growroom/closet.

Since I'm still so inexperienced, I'd like your peoples views on this.

View attachment m_and_f-pic1.jpg Sorry Spookashell, but tall and short have nothing to do with sex of the plant. That has more to do with genetics. Some plants like satori can take up to 8 weeks or longer to show sex.

The size of the plant and the bushiness of it has nothing at all to do with whether it is male or female Trying to second guess by plant size or appearance does not work, Until you see flowers or preflowers, there is no way to tell.

I would suggest that you relax a little. You really do have several weeks from the first appearance of balls before they open and drop pollen.
