    It's hermie if ya see the little spade shaped sacks and the pistols. Sometimes ya have multiple hairs from one calyx and after a while some of the hairs ( or a lot ) can turn brown.

    they look female. As long as you don't see balls growing , I wouldn't worry about the color of the hairs.

    i read something about if the pistils from the calyx are browny colour then they have became pollenated somehow?i got no male at all i think they all have white pistils on just not white from the calyx ones.

    those appear to have sprouted the small preflowers at the main stem prior to actual flowering and have since "died" turning the hairs brown. when i say died i mean only the few single small buds not the actual plant. i have had many plants do similar during a large scrog where i vegged a long time.

    I have never had them come out dark , but as long as it's hairs instead of balls you should be good ...... good luck

    y wud they die tho they have only been there for 6 days,so wat ur saying is no bud will grow where the pistils have died and gone brown,they were never actually white they came out browny coloured.ty

    glad to wake up today and see them ll have loadsas white hairs out the calyx,theres a few brown ones but im not worried now as the white ones are coming out in force.anybody have a time till harvest from now roughly i know there far from ready but hoping no longer than 4 weeks does this sound fair.
