    These pictures and quotes were donated from a sexing thread about identifying females by their pre-flowers (primordia) which was authored by "Crazy Composer". The pictures alone speak a thousand words...

    Note: The plant parts marked with an "X" are called "stipules", they appear on both male and female plants.


    This diagram shows the difference (on a slightly more mature plant) between genuine pre-flowers and actual bud sites, which are - in fact different animals altogether.

    From a further distance, but quite clear-cut.
    I know how it is for some of the newer growers who are eagerly anticipating their first view of an actual marijuana flower. Well, this is what it looks like, play your cards right and you'll have thousands of these hairs clumped tightly together and covered in crystals that will smell so nice. Don't worry, it's coming.

    Agreed. That was one of the very first things that I needed to know, and studied whatever I could find, until I was sure I knew what i was doing. It's a really good skill to have, especially if your pressed for space in the growroom.

    I've got a couple bag seed plants outdoors atm and some of these are already visable. I noticed them about 2 weeks ago and they havnt grown since. Is it possible/normal for a plant to show preflowers so far from flowering? I understand the relationship between dark periods hormones and flowering. Could it be that they were grown at night with the sun the next day inevitably there so stop any more growth untill flowering?
