It’s a situation where you have no idea of seed genetics.
So…now it’s a let it grow and see situation. Be aware mystery seeds will have males that will gift you a bucket of seeds.

Personally, I prefer to know what I am lavishing time, effort, money and love so I can change the nutes to maximize the health making for a good harvest.

I can’t tell. It’s not clear to me. Some with white pistils look like female to me. Bt the male should be like in this Are these boy’s part? Help!.

I guess you are in northern hemisphere. Yes, some of my plants are getting into flowering stages already. If you read the seed description, it will say flowering time 60 day, 8-9 weeks, etc. That means when they start flower from harvest could be 2-3 months, at least for outdoor growth.

For the male you pull out, you can eat the fresh leaves, making stir-fry. I dried the roots, trunk, and leaves. Then slow cooked them with coconut oil, let it steep for over a day. Then I could use the oil as salve, replace butter in baking, etc. I tried putting it on my face before bed and it helps getting rid of the itch from eczema I’ve had for a long time.

These are bag seeds. The are female. I had a few that already had “balls” on them and pulled them. I am like 75-80 miles west of Chicago.
The seeds I got from this site are not flowering yet. I was thinking in years past normally they start at the end (ish) of July and than ready for harvest by Mid October.
They can be regular plants, just asking, thought it a bit early to flower already.

I guess once they sprout, the veggetative state is dictated by sunlight. Once you get 12 hrs, it’ll hurry up and mature the flowers that started. So they could technically be in veg state with some tips starting to send pistils out. This photosensitivity thing really surprised me. I’d never grown weeds before but have been growing backyard veggies for decades. The one I planted outside in Feb before I knew about the light trigger, flowered in Apr really far along and started to show signs of revegging in Jun but only 1/4 of the branches sprouted out leaves. Most of the buds are still buds. I’m just waiting to see what she’s going to do. The other ones I planted later in Apr-May are just showing a few white pistils but I suppose they’ll be like that until Sept before getting serious fattening up the buds.

I also found the roots are really useful so don;t throw them away. There are a lot of medicinal stuff in the roots especially anti-inflammation compounds.

Nope, don’t have the sack lol.

If I remember, @Larry815 started some plants long enough ago that they would probably be showing preflowers right now, so that’s my best guess.

In this area they will flower before there is 12 hours sunlight too. We won’t hit 12 hours of sunlight until end of September, and there will be some outdoor plants already getting harvested by then.

Thanks man. Probably should have realized ‘preflowers’ and flowering are different stages.

No biggie. I had identified that he was in my hood in earlier posts, so remember there was some plants started pretty early this year. Had I not, I would surely be asking when they were started. Preflowers like this can be seen on some indoor plants on 18/6 light schedule in as little as 7-8 weeks. Just plants way of being nagging wife, letting you know she is ready to go lol.

all my plants are now showing signs of very early flower. It is just the 2 other plants are alot further along. But like I said these are bag seeds. The seed from here and the few others I have are all just starting… So maybe a early strain.

When were they all popped?

I would have to say that I started it was either the last days of February or the start of March.Kept them inside, late this year since we were soooo wet and cold.
I would say the end of April I did start putting them outside during the day, and inside at night. Than the 2ed in May planted them in 10Gallon pots. Since my soil were I am now is crap. I do have one or two in the ground, but most in soil. Just keep wanting to try and be successful in the ground. Since my first grow was in the ground and it did GREAT, but in a different town.

No All the plants are just starting to show signs of flower…very early. But the two I originally posted about are popping more.

You’re nearly a month after solstice, so shouldn’t be surprised? Especially with plants that are4- 5 months old.

I can agree with that, was just surprised it was only 2 of them, and now the rest of my plants are just starting to show signs.
