I put a post up in the breeding section, but it was primarily to show novice growers out there, like myself, an easy way of identifying sex in your plants.


After looking at this particular article, and about 40 dozen other's over the last 2 weeks, I'm pretty sure neither of my bigger plants are showing sex yet! D: D: I'm almost 8 weeks into veg! 57 days! They should be showing sex already! :( What gives?

When I run up against stubborn plants I will usually flip them for a cpl days to get them to show. 8 weeks is a long time with no sex shown. Jmo

Alot of plants will show in 5-6 weeks of veg, but alot will take longer, but they will show in veg.

Some will show pre-flowers BWD before the dark cycle is induced. Others need a little bump of 12/12. 8 weeks of veg you should have some monsters on your hands. Hope they are tied down well.

I've always had to flip my plants to get them to show sex, or maybe i'm just getting anxious and flipping them a bit too soon.

Why not just take a cut in a glass of water and put THAT in 12/12?

No need to stress the whole plant.

Can't take a cut and put it in 12/12. I'm running 1 room. And thanks for the advice guys. Nouvelle, they aren't tied down at all. :( Probably not a smart idear. But I'm only going to have 2 big plants and perhaps 2-3 small clones.

You have alternating nodes, they are sexually mature. I say flip them. I have had strains that did not show until I put them in 12/12. At 8 weeks, it should not take them much time at all to start popping out those hairs or balls.

I'll be flipping them when we get the HPS. That does bring up another point though! I'm currently using a 400W MH. I'm upgrading for flowering to a 600W air-cooled HPS. We won't have that light until the 18th eat the earliest, so 1 week from today. Is it a bad idea to flip them over to 12/12 using the 400W MH, and then in 1 week, put the new light in there while the lights are supposed to be on? Would this have a bad impact on the flowering process?

won't hurt a thing..;) 'nasty
bwd.. I'm presently sexing some plants, on their 8th week from seed. I'll see how my camera skills are, and try to get some decent pic's of their 'pre-flowers'. Pre-flowers will generally show you their sexual identity somewhere between 6-10 weeks, under a veg friendly light cycle. Usually at the 4th or 5th node "IME"
