Idea to tell plant sex early?

Hi guys,

Is it possible to go from a 18/6 growth veg cycle in the early stages to just perhaps a few days or so of 12/12 flower cycle to identify a plants sex earlier on?

And then back to 18/6 cycle to reveg?


I think it would make for a long grow. It would start flower then have to reveg then to flower again. It is possible but in my opinion not advisable. May even cause hermies later on.

I’ve heard of folks taking a clone from their plant to accomplish this.


I’m not sure how much room you have in your tent but by week 5-6 I should know if I’ve got girls.
I take clones in week 4-5 right before I go to 12x12 on my girls.

It is possible, yes. But much easier (and maybe cheaper in the long run) to utilize Farmer Freeman for a sex test at a very young age. You can get a 10 pack of tests for $120.

I’ve known breeders to do this but not the average grower.

Midwest has the cost effective idea. Root clippings and flip the clones. Keep meticulous records!
