Can't really tell with those pics. Do you have alternating nodes?

Yeah, that plant is huge. See if you can take some better pics. It should be able to be sexed by now.

No, if hairs haven't popped by now...it could be either male or female. However, I find that males usually show first. I don't understand how a plant that size isn't showing preflowers somewhere...have you sexed a plant before? Do you know what you are looking for?

Maybe try and get a bit clearer pics from closer to the top of the plant?

Plant looks great, by the way--big and bushy and green.

If you haven't flipped your lights yet they won't tell you what sex they are. (unless they are auto's)
Flip the lights and look again after a couple weeks.

Photoperiod plants will show male or female pre flowers once they reach sexual maturity. For me, that’s usually around 12” tall and has alternating nodes like Hamster Lewis mentioned.

Hey @buzzkill can you take a close up picture of the tops? If it’s showing preflowers you should be able to see some close to the tops. That plant is huge for it to not be showing any pre flowers!
