So my one White Widow is a girl, showing tons of preflowers. There's quite a few sites all over the plant. One thing that struck me as odd though, is that she hasn't started to alternate nodes yet. The two males that I pulled both had alternating nodes, but a week or two later, the girl still hasn't started alternating.
I'm just curious, is it normal for females to not start alternating as early as males? I've read that once plants start alternating, they've reached sexual maturity. Even showing preflowers, does this plant have a little while to go before she's sexually mature?
Here's a pic. Not a very good one, but you can see that the nodes are not alternating.
