    Heres a clearer picture , not sure if those are something all plants are going to have or if that's what you look for in a female. Help me out !

    Ideally we'd want a shot of the second node where the first true leaves emerged (3 bladed), however it looks like its still too early to tell, like brettsog said you'll see small green (sometimes they will have a crystaly appearance, more so as the plant matures) teardrop shape (pretty much teardrop size to) growths emerging from the top of the nodes (where the branch meets the stock), these are called calyx and each of them will have two thin white hairs poking out called pistils, this is the tell tale sign of a female, if however there are little green balls (pollen sacks) there then it is a male and unless your breeding get it away from the rest of your plants ASAP!

    Well technically you should be hoping for hairs, sometimes male pollen sacks can appear as tear shaped at first, its the white hairs pocking out of the tears that you want to see, good luck.

    Yea you'll get something out of that.. Not much, but something. Make sure the box i lined with reflective material or atleast painted a flat white so you can get the most use out of your lights in that little box.

    Thanks man, you or anyone else use CFLs and know if 5000 lumens on a 12-12fs would be alright for a little 2x2x3 box. Would like some help! will be using 2 150w equivalents. I always see the HPS light charts and the MH charts but not the cfl one, that would help out alot too. Thanks
