5 leaves=Male?

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by MasterFFrost, May 2, 2006.

  1. I was talking to a friend who is experienced in growing cannabis, and he told me that a plant that has 5 leaves is a male. I wanted to know if this was true, because my plant has 5 leaves and that would be annoying.
  2. no.. hes wrong..
  3. Actually, half of all plants that get 5 leaves are male. The other half are female. ; -)
  4. im speaking of mexican bagseed here,,,,, i had 3 males on this inside grow that had 7 to 11 shoots on the fan leaf,,,,, huge ass leaf,,,,, beautiful looking plant,,,,, and they turned male,,i really was hoping they wold be female,,,they were some sweet ass healthy plants,,,, only to grow balls on me,,,,,,aaaarrrrgggghhhh:eek: and rubbing a penny on a wart will get rid of it,, [just some ol saying that dont allways apply] just grow the leaves,,,balls or hairs will tell u the sex,,,,,nothing else...:eek:

  5. So do hairs mean that it is a male too ro jsut balls?
  6. when it starts flowering, white hairs or balls will come out. white hairs is a female. balls are a male. i have never actually seen balls tho in person. my first plant i have right now is a female. good luck.
  7. Why do people think that leaf count is related to sex? It took me 2 days to convince my friend thats theres no corrilation.
  8. because there's about 5,284,697,234 myths about growing marijuana unfortunately
  9. aint that the truth...:wave:
  10. Your friend is obviously not that experienced. If we could figure out the sex of the plant by counting the points on our leaves we wouldn't spend our time vegging a male for so long just to trash it.
  11. your firend is full of kaka.
  12. Ok the answer to your question is obviously NO your friend doesnt sound very experienced...
  13. if you want actual expierienced grower input you found the right spot ...:D
    youre friend has none.... i said it NONE ...
    hell i have a male that has 9-13 laefers that never put out anything less than a 7... water laef to 7 leafer to 11 to 13 ..... ive never even heard of that myth ...
    white pistils for a female ... balls for a male .... white hairy balls on a heshe...:rolleyes:
  14. i seen a male plant once...stemmed out like these green things..yeah ok balls lol...looked alright but females def look amazingly more tasty :p:smoke:
    yes, you guessed it, im in love with mary jane :)
  15. I've seen 3-fingered plants, and one with 11 (and I know there are some with more). Finger count has nothing to do with sex, it's just one of many characteristics that varies with strain.
  16. Wow.
    This is the second post in a row that I have responded to where the so called friend giving advice doesn't have a clue what she is talking about.
