He said its 3 weeks old, so its probably not showing sex quite yet. Unless he is flowering it.

In a couple weeks you should be able to tell with most plants.  As far as I know, there's really no way to tell without either flipping your lights or waiting for it to mature.  I believe by about your 6-7th node you should be able to have something to look at, though it wont be as obvious as in the example pics above for some time...

I would wait 2 weeks if you can't flower it before then... I don't think trying to clone would be useful for sexing unless you were trying to test genetics.

Sing her a song, watch a romantic comedy, and water her with some red wine.

If all goes well, she'll be yours for the night. :wink:

My computer wait berserk for a second..... Anyways....


Most strains of Marijuana will show their sex on their own after six weeks of veg. This is called pre-sexing. This is a natural occurrence. Your plant will show you what sex it is and stay in veg so long as your photo-period is 16 hours or more. If you want to induce flowering on a young plant. Just switch your photo-period to 12 on 12 off. 48 hours of total darkness between the veg and flower cycle will send your plant(s) a strong signal to flower. Try it. It works.:thumbup:

No most strains will show sex within 4 weeks.

I don't think I've ever seen preflowers :shrug: I've vegged for as long as 8 weeks and had plants not show sex, I usually just flower and then weed out the dudes

Uh. Triptonic. I have seen it happen hundreds of times all right around six weeks, sir. I am not going to tell you that you have not experinced that. You do not need to be telling me "No".

Really!?!. That's crazy dood. Asstated earlier. I have seen pre-flowers a hundred times. 

Plants grown from seed under an 18/6 day/night photoperiod will usually show pronounced pre-flowers before plants given 24/0 day/night photoperiod. Under a 16/8 day/night regimen, pre-flowers show faster and are more pronounced, usually.

You can either bud them from here or pick desirable females for mothers.

maybe that's part of it, I veg under 21/3 so I guess I just give them too much light for them to show sex :shrug:

Then again, I'm in a very MJ friendly state so 90% of my grows are from clones so I don't even bother to check sex, but the 3-4 grows I've done from seed I've never seen gender before I flip the lights
