    Is it too early to tell or is this a male or a female? I can't tell if these are calyx. Or om pollen sacs

    In my first three grow operations I learned about how stress can make a plant go hermi and produce seeds. Do you think the plants in the photos above have a danger of spreading pollen? I mean, they look immature at that stage and not ready to open and fertilize female plants. I don't know and seriously would like your opinion. Thanks.

    If it is mature enough to form male flowers, the pollen is mature enough to make seeds. Unless you want seeds, pull it and throw it away …

    it can be done . with the right nutes the right way ,trellis ,low stress training topping,fimming,selective defoliation,proper ph and proper lights,enough oxygen to the roots and enuff co2 to the canopy,loli popping and harvesting at the right moment and obviously u need more than a 5 gallon bucket more like 10, ppms,ec,and water temp on point,and finnaly good big heavy harvest genetics ,I dont think I'm far off ,this is my first grow look at all the knuckles and branches and the internodal spacing, not that I'm an expert,but by my 3rd grow I'll be pulling big boy weight,check out hygrohybrid on yt

    I usually pull 3 ounces dry per plant. 4 on a good run. A better way to go about it is to get good at cloning and then multiple plants in the Flower tent while still cloning the Mother Plant and replacing a couple plants every week or so as they finish. It is called a perpetual grow.

    This article suggests restocking the whole Flower tent, while many others set it up to replace 2 or 3 plants every 2 weeks or so. This way you are harvesting plants every couple weeks instead of the 8 or 10 weeks it takes for the whole grow. >>>>https://www.growweedeasy.com/the-perpetual-harvest

    The male plants tend to grow stronger than the rest of the plants in my experience.
