Where do I tell the sex of a plant before it starts flowering?
Determining the sex of a cannabis plant before it starts flowering can be difficult, but there are a few ways to do it. Here are some places to look for clues:
- Nodes: Look for small, white hairs or pistils emerging from the nodes where the branches and leaves meet the main stem. These are female pre-flowers and are a sign that the plant is female.
- Stipules: Stipules are small, leaf-like growths that appear at the base of the branches. In male plants, the stipules are usually smooth and pointed, while in female plants they are often fuzzy or hairy.
- Pre-flowers: Male pre-flowers usually appear as small, round balls that hang from the nodes, while female pre-flowers look like small, white hairs emerging from the nodes.
Keep in mind that determining the sex of a cannabis plant before it starts flowering can be tricky, and it’s not always possible to do so with 100% accuracy. Some strains may also have different pre-flower characteristics, so it’s important to do your research and familiarize yourself with the specific strain you’re growing. If you’re unsure about the sex of your plants, it’s best to wait until they start to flower before making any decisions.
