I wish I could see life. I don't. From what you said it should be female. To explain the fast growing it might have more sativa in it. Those grow fast yet take longer to mature. Grower13 said "sounds like you may 2 different phenotypes." This is a big possibility. Just because the label on the seed case says one thing. Doesn't mean all the seeds will conform to that description. Other pollen can mix in. Pollen can travel very far. I would let it play out. Keep an eye on it like you are. That one might be the tastiest of the bunch. In veg second month take clones. If you like a great sativa mix I think you might of found it. Grow On!:2940th_rasta:

We would need a better picture to tell if you have any "parts" showing yet. You will just have to keep your eyes open. Unfortunately, just because you bought fem seeds does not mean that they always turn out female. And with fem seeds, I think that it is always a good idea to watch closely for hermies. You should be able to confirm male or female any time now as the plant does look sexually mature.

Different phenos just mean that you have different growing characteristics from seeds created by the same parents--no stray polllen involved. Just like children from the same parent can sometimes look quite different, plants from the same female and male can vary widely in how they grow. This is not at all unusual. Just keep watching her and she will tell you soon if she is actually a she.

Unless your seed vendor led you astray those are female.

Buying fem seeds does not guarantee female plants. Sometimes they simply do not turn out female, regardless of what the breeder has done. This is not the breeder necessarily leading anyone astray....it just happens.

There is also a possibility of a female plant turning male over stress in the environment. I'm not talking hermi. I mean full male plant. Food for thought.

I am not sure I understand this? A plant that starts out female and pops male parts is, by definition, a hermy. I had a "fem" be a full male, but it was a full male, never any pistils. One of those seeds that the chemicals did not affect when making the fems, i.e. not all fem seeds will produce female plants. Part of the reason I stay away from fem seeds if possible.

Ok so you always use regular seeds. What is your trick to find the female if you don't mind me asking? Both regulars I tried were straight male. Never preflowered. Was great looking sativas. I don't have the space to raise several to bud to find out. Right now I'm building supply. Once I have good supply I might play with my regular seeds. I have Morpheus and White Voodoo in regular.

I have never grown a feminized seed until now... I will see how it goes. You check for sex when the plant is sexually mature. I spend a lot of time sexing plants..sometimes it takes longer then you think it should for them to show. I have had all females and have had all males. It really is a 50/50 proposition. When you get a boy you throw it out unless you want his pollen. This is the way it has been done for years until feminized plants came about albeit with some problems.

Do not know of any way of telling if a seed is male or female. Have read about it but no convincing evidence to me. Only way I know is to plant `em and grow `em.

There is no trick and sometimes you do end up with males. If you have a very small space, then fem seeds may be best for you. I am not saying that people should not use them....I am saying that buying fem seeds is no guarantee that you are going to get females 100% of the time. I personally do not like them and do not buy them if reg seeds are available, as I do not really like how fem seeds are created--screwing with the plant on a genetic level with chemicals (I also stay away from GMO foods).

It is some belief/evidence that the environment can have some influence on sex. I will see if I can find the thread.
