Sexing Question
    #524309 - 02/07/11 12:25 PM (5 years, 9 months ago)

The baby's are about 12days old since breaking soil, all have 3different sets of leaves starting on the 5leaf cycle, i need too sex these baby's, i will be vegging them till 2feet before flowering, now my question is do you think it will be less stressfull if i pre flower when they are 6-10inches, or pre flower at 20-24" then the momma's can stay in flower and rip the males, or sex them younger when they havent matured as much....note plants are 2inches tall, under 400watt mh, 250watt hps.
i know how too go about everything, im just wondering wich way is the less stressfull way..maybe it doesn't matter, please shine some light

I'm not sure what you mean by,

What do you mean by "If I pre flower"?  How does one force pre flowers?

i meant pre flower as flower before i flower at 20-24".....should i do a pre flower at 6-10" then determine sex let grow till 20-24" then flower again since 20-24" is the height i want too flower at, or should i just do it once they are all at the height i want then remove the males.
i was pretty stoned when i wrote it, hopefully this clarifys

I don't know if I understand you right....if you know you are growing a male there is no point in letting it grow unless you plan on making seeds.

If you are growing clones a plant will show signs of sex ("pre-flower") in about a month but if it is from seed then it will take a little under 2 months. So once males can be distinguished from females then toss them.

*Pre-flowers occur WHEN IN VEGETATIVE GROWTH

Were you thinking of flowering the plants (switching to 12/12) for just a few weeks until they were sexed, then revegging?

That is a possibility, but I think most people don't suggest it.

I think in the end it would take about the same amount of time as waiting for the plants to just naturally show preflowers anyway (because I *think* the revegging process takes quite a while once it has switched) so it doesn't make too much sense to unnecessarily  stress 'em.

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