Still no sexing?

  1. Plants still arent showing sex. About 2.5 - 3 weeks into 12/12.

    Is it bad to just give 48 hours of dark? I hear this shows sex by the end of 48 for sure

  2. how old are the plants?

    Is it completely dark, during lights out, or do you have light leaks?
  3. Plants are about 6-7 weeks total.

    It is completely dark during lights out, but I run light at night time. So during the day I open my box and water quickly if needed and close everything back up till the lights on.

    They arent getting any sunlight, and very little artificial from a standard bulb when I water.

    Will that affect it?
  4. I'd just wait.
    I don't know how often you have to interfere with the darkness (or for how long) to trigger any hermies, but I only ever open the box to water, etc... during the lights-on hours.

    The only times I've opened it during lights-out were after power surges or short outages to make sure fans were still going, because it gets hot quick without them when the lights kick on. I've only done that a few times and each time was literally only a second or two.
  5. Gave them 36 hours dark. Lights just went on for the day, and I have pistils!

    This method worked =)
