  1. So I started 2 seeds that I found in a bag of some dank. one is 2 months old and the other is about 3 weeks old. how long will it take to tell if it is a male or female from preflowers?
  2. It takes about 4 weeks for a female plant to produce preflowers yet not all of them will.
  3. If you just found a single seed it's likely female.. Many strains will toss a nanner or 2 if let go a bit long in flower and will often produce a handful of seeds.. I love finding them..
    My current Train Wreck and Girl Scout Cookies are rescued that way..

  4. It's my understanding that if you're just waiting for the plant to show it's sex in veg, you're looking at about 8 weeks from seed. You've got to know what you're looking for. But you can do it that way and nobody really wants to flower a plant that's less than 8 weeks old anyway. There is the tried and true method of flowering them to see, but it's not necessary. But if you found a single seed in some really good stuff, it's like BrassNwood said's more than likely a female. We find one every now and again in our runs and all ours are proven females or clones from females. Germinate them and see what happens. TWW
  5. so I see something on one of the nodes. it'd too small to take a picture of but it looks like it's starting to preflower

  6. Female preflowers look like this, usually show up after 6-10 weeks depending in the strain.
