i originally designed my grow room on a SOG system. but bec i am limited in the number of plants i can have, i decided early on to let my babies veg a good while and try to get the most yield per plant as i could. but my room layout wasn't sized for long vegges. It's not the end of the world, but it does mean i have 8 to 10 plants crammed under each of my veg lights (1 600W MH and 1 800W SolarStorm LED).
they've been vegging for just over 6 weeks after a full month on the seedling tray, so i expected i would be able to sex them and pull out the males, clearing out the clutter and giving the girls more access to the light.
only problem is that i suck at determining the sex of my plants. even on 18/6 i should be able to see some pre- preflowers, beginning of pistils etc. but they all look the same to me.
i have a 30x magnifier but i think i'm blinder than a bat.
once i get the room set up for fruiting i'll move them over and maybe i'll have better luck then.
anyway, here's the latest pics
