    As this is my first grow, Im not sure if this is a male. I have four plants total, all 9 days into flowering. Everything with them is going very well. All four plants are showing signs of sex. Three are female for sure, but one Im having a problem identifying. It seems that it would be a female, as it is short, very bushy, and starting to smell. The big tall one I have a pic of here as well, with long internodal spacing, I was sure was gonna be a male, as it is the tallest and prettiest plant. Turns out it was the first to show the hairs. So now Im confused. This is a seed grow and all plants are in a three gallon pot as I am tight on space and in an apartment. In certain spots on the plant in question, it seems like the beginnings of hairs are starting but the up close pic certainly seems to me like it is a cluster of balls. Anyone have any advice as to if this may be a hermie? Oh yea...the strain is unspecified...some kind of cross between a strawberry haze and cheese. My friend does the breeding himself and gives me the seed. Any input would be greatly appreciated!! IMAG0325.jpg IMAG0326.jpg IMAG0327.jpg IMAG0328.jpg

    These seeds were not feminized either. So far, three out of four are definitely female. Hoping the close up pic of the plant is not a hermie. Shooting for 4 out of 4.

    Sorry but that's as close as I can get to it. Any closer and my camera won't focus. I can't believe that a small bushy plant like that would be a male and the tall slender one will be a female. Is this common?

    more like the opposite skinny tall ones are males and bushy small ones are females but going by sex organs is the only way to tell

    Looks like a male to me. IME females will usually have some sort of reddish tinge on some part of the main stem. 100% green usually indicates male. That, and I think I can see preflowers forming, but not where calyxes would form.

    I'm thinking it's a male too. Hexthat, I understand what u are saying and I know that is the general rule of thumb but it turned out that the tallest skinniest plant I have, which is the one on the front left of the pic of the four, is a female, while the one I am asking about has the short bushy typical male look and there is red on the stem. So I dunno. I guess I'll be able to tell for sure in a few more days.

    And another thing, the other three plants are showing pistols while the one in question is barely showing signs of sex.Which is another confusing thing because males almost always show sex first, but this one is last. Seems like everything is completely backward with this one

    IMAG0335.jpg IMAG0336.jpg IMAG0337.jpg IMAG0338.jpg IMAG0339.jpg IMAG0340.jpg Now here are the better pics. The first plant in the pic looks like your typical male, tallest, best looking plant out of the bunch with a lot of space in between nodes. Turns out, it is a female and was the first plant to show its pistols (as you can see in the two close up pics right after it. Now, the short bushy plant in the middle, which has your typical female look, tight internodal spacing, short and bushy, seems to be the one I think is a male, which also seems completely ass backwards. lol The way it seems is that the one you would assume to be male is female (for sure a female, as its pistols are showing and can be seen in the pics), and the one you would assume to be female, may just be male. Any thoughts??

    UGH!!!! Fuck lol....it was the second best looking plant!! Thanks for your input though, it is highly appreciated. As I said before, this is my first grow but I have definitely done my homework. I eat, sleep, breath, and eat growing now. Four plants total, three female. 75% Female to Male Ratio. Id say that isn't bad for my first grow. Thanks man. I think Im gonna give it another day or two, maybe three, just to make sure before I put him to sleep. I really really really don't like killing plants, even if they are male.

    I would wait and see if you get hairs or balls. I have a cousin how makes something he calls smash. Male hash is how he described it.
