Whats up teckS. I don't see anything right now that would make me say male or female.

Just be patient. ;) Id say you still have a couple weeks before you can ID male/female for sure. Good luck and keep us posted

We know that the one is a female.. i can show pics its just the other one hasnt showed preflowers but we are only in the second day of flowering. Other then that the plants are in great health have alternating nodes.. alot .. and one is showing pre flowers so we know we can at least clone that one and let its bud for us. But hey well see what happens.

mmmmmmmm...MHO, taking 8 cuts from a plant with only 12 branches, might be over doing it. At least if they're all taken in a single session. It might possibly be more shock than she can quicly recover from.
I'd take no more than 4 now, give her a week or 10 days to heal/recover, before takeing the other four.

I agree with Hick. Stoney Bud put it a great way once. no more than 1/3 of the plant mass. so if you have 12 branches you could take a max of 4 branches.

lol, ok good i didn;t read these posts before i did it, but i went with my gut feeling ( which was 8 was too much) and took 4 from each. the plants are looking great and are still growing normally despite the clones being taken, and the clones are doing alright,.... the ones that i took off the "possibly" male are kinda droopy and the ones i took off the "for sure" female are looking great. Whats the deal? all 8 are getting the same light and watering, 2x20watt Gro-Lux on 24 hours and i water them about once a day because they get REALLY dry in those jiffy cups. Any suggestions on my little clones??... the clones near the bottom of the pic are the droopy ones from the droopy plant in the 2nd picture

also i am aware that the lacking of an air tight area to grow these in is not gonna be good, but any help to get these little guys growing withOUT a humidity dome would be much appreciated

EDIT - Ok i have got the clones in an tub with plastic wrap over the top.. im going to give it some air each day making the air time longer each day, now how can i fix these droopy guys.. should i be giving them nutes this early?

Honestly in pics 1 and 3 it looks a lot to me, like that plant is male. I can see the starting of male flowers. I could be wrong, but that is what I see.

thats what ive been worried about, but we took 4 clones off both so if it turn out to be a male we can just kill it and kill its 4 clones and hope for the best with the 4 females
... i REALLY hope its not a male tho.. would ****

are you misting the clones at all, tecks?...a "light"misting once or twice p/day, might perk 'em up. Ph adjusted plain water, or a very diluted flowering fert, sometimes helps rooting on difficult strains.
