Thank you for your reply.Well, you are having problems because there is no sign of gender yet. What you are seeing here is simply new growth. If these are 5 weeks old and not showing sex yet, I am kind of wondering if they are actually autoflowering. By 5 weeks, it should be starting to flower if it is an autoflowering plant.
Be very careful taking these outside and then bringing them back into your tent again. It is really easy to bring in disease and pests from outside. You will hate yourself if you bring spider mites into your tent. Your plant looks healthy, but really stretched, which usually indicates inadequate light or light too far away.
First time ‘grower’.Thank you for your reply.
I’m hoping they are autoflower, that’s what I was told but perhaps you are correct. I still have yet to identify gender.
This one particular plant pictured I actually started from seed in that pot, it’s been outside for about a month now.
As for the (5) plants that I took out of the crowded tent yesterday, I plan on leaving outside in the shade for a few days and then incorporate more/direct sunlight to let them finish their life cycle outside. I will attach photos of 2 of the 5 plants that are outside now.
First grow obviously but I’m learning.
Thank you.Sorry, but doesn't look like preflowers to me. Most plants show their first pistils at the intersection of the branches a few nodes down from the top bud. Like 2redeyes said.....patience.
Do your plants have alternating nodes yet? This is generally the precursor to the plant showing sex. The pictures look like they are not. I am thinking more and more that these are not autos. Where did you get the seeds? Were they bagseeds?
I’m up for suggestions. I have a 5 x 5 greenhouse I could move them into or keep them in the tent.A 20/4 hours light cycle is fine for photoperiod plants. You have not done them any harm. Are you planning on finishing them outside or inside?
I still do not see alternating nodes. However as these are 6 weeks old, you should be seeing signs of sex soon.
My tent is only 3‘ x 3‘ / 600W LED. I started these plants from seed and they are decent size plants (about 2 feet tall) but the tent is crowded. I think I’m going to take your suggestion and leave them outside in pots and start new plants, using the tent.How big is your tent? What do you have for light?
If you put them into the tent, you can flip the lights any time you want and have bud in probably 9-10 weeks or so after the flip.
If you keep them outside, you won't have bud until probably Oct sometime. However, you will have a whole lot more of it. I have had plants though that took up 25 sq ft--1 plant. I try to plan on at least 20 sq ft per plant outside. So a 5 x 5 greenhouse might not hold much. Can you just keep them outside not in the greenhouse?
