    I've had my plants on 12/12 now for going on 2 weeks. Still no signs of sex on any of them.

    How long do you usually have to wait until they start showing? Thanks.

    1 week to 8 weeks is avarage. Some strains are faster than others...

    What week did you switch them to 12/12? If they have been going for 2 wks and still showing no sex then they are probably not old enough to switch into the flowering phase yet. When they are ready to flower and in 12/12 at least by 2 wks you'd still a pistil or a ball or something. Pics?

    I grew for 30 days then just under 2 weeks ago I switched to 12/12. Nothing showing yet.

    So you've been growing for 44 days total with 14 of those days 12/12? Not sure I understood, but if so no need to worry, you still have a few more weeks to go before it shows anything :). Some plants show sex as early as 4-5 wks but some takes longer. You might wanna get a microscope to look at the nodes to see the small preflowers growing or you could just wait for them to get big enough to see with your naked eyes.

    they started (i had 20 plants at the start) to show sex on my 6th day of flowering. Yesterday, my 15th day, finally my last male showed up! 15 males out of 20 baggie seeds! those odds suck! but I vegged for 2 months under flouros so a total of 2 1/2 months until the last one showed
