    The two white thread-like hairs are your friend, she is a she. But we could always see a "he-she" later. Variation of cultivars (phenotypes) is common. About 150 years years ago, a European monk named Mendel experimented with the common pea. Through selective cross breeding over many generations he observed certain characteristics appeared in offspring (aka recessive, dominant traits) as discrete units, as opposed to the blending of the traits of the parents, the theory popular at the that time. More importantly and applicable to your situation he discovered a 3:1 ratio of inherited traits. When he cross pollinated pea plant that produced yellow pea seeds with one that produced green peas seeds, (yellow+green parents), their offspring (F1) were always yellow seeds but the following generation (F2) were consistently mixed, 3 yellow and 1 green. And this relationship would continue for successive generations. So, 3:1 means that 3 will be alike, 1 will be different, no milk man and not a sister of from a different father--rather its simply genetics. https://www2.palomar.edu/anthro/mendel/mendel_1.htm Hope this helps.

    definite variation between the plants there, looking at the leaves, but yea, could still be the same genetics or not

    Starting a small indoor grow.....

    Hi everyone so I culled the probable males out and I have 2 different cultivars consisting of 5 plants. The tallest one is about 2.5 ft tall (the one in the far back in the attached picture) and I want to switch them all to a flower light cycle. Is it too late to do some LST on them now? By LST I mean to bend the main stalk gradually (using zip ties, insulated wire, etc), so that the main stalk ultimately turns sideways and allows the secondary stalks to grow and flower. All of these already have significant secondary stalks anyway without having done any LST at all. I guess my question is this: Is it okay to begin LST while switching to flower as well? Thank you for the opinions!

    The pair of thread-like structure and shape of the pistils I see in this pic--is why I think girl. This pic I stole online clearly shows the white twin threadlike structures and pistil shape we are all accustom seeing.

    Hey thank you EddieKirk for reaching out to “the Don” on that question. Well I am going to side on the opinion that it is probably a male.....I need to cull something to make room for the girls anyway. Damned if those growths don’t look like some kind of female flower though. In my very limited experience, the first thing that seems to become most apparent at first in females are the whitish hairs (even before any kind of pod becomes apparent), and this surely does not have anything like that. So I plan to cull it to make room for the girls. BTW I guess no one wants a male plant? Pretty sure not but I just wanted to check....

    In the top plant photo, you can see that I recently topped it, only because it was about to run us out of our duplex, but in general I believe in LST. Looking at the pictures now they really don’t look like they could be from the same genetics (to me) because of the way the new growth at the nodes look. Am I right? I re-posted all of the pictures because I know how easy it is for you stoners to forget sh!t!... ....and here too, the top plant pic goes with the top node pic.

    Yes I will post some more pictures of the whole plants tomorrow as you requested.

    They both look like females, Good job, We want you to post photos of your plants so we can help talk you through this, Thaks for sharing. Can we get photos of the whole plant? \

    So to show how much of a noob I am, I am posting a picture of one of the nodes on one of my plants that I still have in veg. Would most folks say that this is a female?: The second picture is of another one of my plants that I am sure is a female. Her pre-flowers don’t look at all like the first picture, and they are supposed to be of the same strain (Pineapple Haze and Second Sight)?

    I have only been able to determine the sex of two of the seven plants that I have. The two that I can identify are plain-as-day females, but the other five I’m still not sure of. There are two different phenotypes, which complicates comparisons. I guess I can just switch to flower light-cycle but I was hoping to free-up some space for the girls. i tried to take some pictures of the internodes, but my phone camera has a hard time focusing on them. If I can get a good picture of some of the internodes I will post them...

    curing your medicine

    I like to remove as much of the fan leafs and non sugar coated bud leaf as possible the couple days leading up to harvest. By doing that before hand, when you chop your babies all you have to do is chop and hang. Depending on what grow technique I used for the grow, I will remove the plants from the tent and then remove any lights or cords that might be in the way. I then wipe everything down with a disinfectant to make sure it is as clean and sterile as possible. I then hang whole plants for about 2 days. Then I will remove stems and hang for around 5 days. I keep the tent as close to 60% and 60* as possible. I keep my exhaust fan on and adjusted to the rate of the R/H, to low and I slow it down or shut it off all together, to high and I speed it up and open more vents. I like to remove the nugs and do a final trim right before the stems will crack instead of bend so that I keep some moisture in them. My mentor used to place the fresh trimmed nugs in a clear plastic tote with a humidity gage in it so that he could monitor it until he was able to keep the lid on for 24hrs at a R/H of 60% then he would place in jars loosely and check everyday for 3 days then a week then not until he needed them. I get my jars ready by placing a humidity pack (62) in each one and close the lid a couple days before I plan on using them, that way they are ready to go when I am. When I am done with the final trim, I place them on drying racks for about 12 hrs or until crispy then place them in the jars. I check them at 12hrs then again at 24. After that last check, with the humidity packs I can pretty much just leave them be for a couple days where I will check them one last time and then just seal them up for long term storage. The humidity packs make life so much easier and safer that I swear by them and will never try to cure without them again. They take all the guess work out of it and more than pay for them selves at 98 cents each.

    curing your medicine

    Before Oh really? ...go on...Google search for cannabis roots. You will find lots of info.Here is one article about it. Personally I would hesitate to ingest it, as there are a lot of alkaloids which could potentially be bad to be ingesting much of, but people do it. As a topical application however, this is not a concern.http://sensiseeds.com/en/blog/getting-roots-cannabis/ Before I started doing living organic soil I used to do exactly that and save my root balls to make root balm even sent a batch out to the community to test out and got lots of good feedback but leaving the roots intact in living organic soil gives the micro organisms in your soil something to feed on in between transplants cuz you ultimately want to cut one plant down and then plant a new one right next to the old stump and then the micro organisms switch over to the new plant and help it thrive
