Grow questions SA

Questions from a fellow grower:

We are currently experiencing winter in Cape Town and its flipping freezing with some lekker warm or I should say some sunny days however not many and it gets pretty cold from about 4PM how do I ensure that my babies germinate when the temperature is pretty low? (I am planting out doors in a pot)

How long does it take from planting to smoking ??

Determining the sex of the plant is incredibly confusing for me, can I send pictures to you as my plants grow ? as I do not want my Girls to be inseminated (keeping the men away from my little girls is important hahahahaha) as I want to produce the best and most potent smoke possible.

Tips Tips Tips please !!! I really want a nice successful crop.
