    OK my plants are 10 days into flowering today and i am totally sure now that at least two plants out of six are males. im not talking just one branch but the whole plant. the seeds i bought are supposed to be feminized Masterkush. do you think i got ripped off and sold bag seed or can you get male plants feminized seeds somehow? this is my first indoor grow, hydroponic, CFL, closet style. I have noticed the plants to be very different- some short and fat w/ fat leaves and 9 "leaflets" on each, some taller with huge, long slender leaves w/ 11 "leaflets." the plants have been through some stress (root rot, ph flucuation, nutrient probs) but are doing great now. anyone else ever had this prob? I don't want to blame the seed dealer if this is something I have caused to happen. oh and is it possible my females are pollinated now (i have been reading but it seems every site has a dif answer to this ?) today is really the first day I could tell the sex for sure, but i am a total newb so this grow has been a real learning experience!

    Of two feminised skunk #11 plants I have one turned totally male, or at least was covered in male parts. I think the stress thing is overrated and that it's to a seed company's benefit is they use the stress excuse or we second guess ourselves every time one "males" or hermies on us. I know from reading a couple other guys had great experience growing indoors with my strain. I'm outdoors. I read a report by one guy who started five fem'd skunk 11s and got 5 females and another person chimed in and had similar results with fem'd seeds. There are several ways to produce fem'd seeds I believe so it's no guarantee all companies are alike.

    Had your male plants pollen sacks had time to pop open? I caught mine within 7 days of forming so they didn't have time to release the pollen.

    I have three plants of another fem'd strain growing and they haven't had time to show sex. It will be interesting to see how they do.

    i don't think any opened, i did my best to check the two males over when i chopped them today. it was a sad moment! i don't know if i should buy fem seeds again or just get reg seeds for half the price. is it normal for a strain to have plants that vary so widely in their appearances?
