Males Grow Faster?
    #405290 - 04/22/10 06:34 PM (6 years, 7 months ago)

So I Have 3 Plants That Are Bout 2 Weeks Along... All From Same Strain Of Plant. I Have Noticed That 2 Are Growing Very Rapidly And The Other Is Short And Petiete Looking.... Healthy But SMall.... Could This Mean The Tall Ones Are Males And The Smaller One May B Female... ?

Eh, I have noticed males growing quicker before, but it's not really of any relation to sexing the plant. Most the time its just genetics that cause uneven growth patterns, especially when it's bagseed.

If you have them on 18/6 they should start showing signs of sex around 30-45 days.

For some reason, all the males I've had (out door, indoor, made it through flowering, I killed on accident, etc) have been a lot more stretchy than females.

I don't know if its a coincidence or not, but thats just what I've seen...and I had 3 or 4 males last year, and 2 indoor. Not really the best source of info, but its IME :P

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

I have noticed this also. Take for example, my first grow. I started out with about 70 seedlings. Out of the 70 I picked the tallest, best, most vigorous 12 to go into flowering. Out of 12 I got only 3 females!!!

Biggest is not always best when dealing with regular seed.

seems to be the opposite with these early skunks i have, the girls got way bigger and bushier sooner than the males which was quite a delight:sun:.

That's sweet. In which case I would say it must be strain dependent.

My old timer grow buddy doesn't even know what preflowers are, but will say "That one looks male" and point out a tall lanky plant.        :shrug:

I'm guilty of this too, but its just wishful thinking to believe its that easy. Like BCBudMaster said my skunks were the opposite, the five tallest stretchiest plants were all females, while most all my experience has been the opposite. Strain dependent at best or totally random at worst IMO.
