    Ok so my plants are 2 months old now and im growing outdoors in New England. I realize Plants will show sex as the days shorten, but ive heard that they will show preflowers before this time? I cant however find a definitive answer to this. So with this being said, when will mine show their
    sex?

    Usually, yes, you get pre flowers around two months of veg but not always either depends on strain but usually, yes!

    Age. Usually 5-8 weeks from seed for pre flowers.

    If you have alternating nodes, the pre flowers should be along shortly. The alternating nodes show up first. It is a sign of plant maturity.

    I'm currently in the same position as you. Got 3 mystery bag seed that should be on the verge on showing some sex within the next little bit. Can't wait.

    some strains show sex based on their age, but all strains show sex when time cycle changes.

    Why? They hurt when u get hit there, they get women pregnant, always have to "adjust" them so your legs dont smush em and they aren't exactly pleasing to the eye. Lol jk I love mine too despite all that
