Sexing Sativa pre-flowers


#1

Hi:
I have 5 non-feminized Durban Poisons coming to the end of week 2 following switch to 12/12. I see lots of pre-flowers, but all look much the same and I cannot determine sex based on what I’m seeing today (see pics).
Any thoughts? How long might I have before males produce pollen?

Boys
Those
Are
Boys


#3

That’s bad luck. All male, unfortunately.


#4

The pointy bits coming from the top of the buds will not be pistels? The pics of male pre-flowers I’ve seen seem to show male buds as rounder in shape and “bald”.


#5

To my eyes, photo number two is the only one that could possibly be female. The rest are confirmed male.


#6

I agree those are all boys.

@Fever @3high5you @Familyman420 How far off are they from shedding pollen do you think? Thanks for the help. 1st timer grower who will only use feminized seeds from here on out :slight_smile:

3-4 weeks yet, but you should rip them asap.


#9

Sorry bro you got males there


#10

All boy’s… :angry::angry::angry::rage::triumph:
Kill them asap… :wink:

:v: :sunglasses:


#11

BOYS! kill them all :sob:

5 of 5 males, that sucks! If there’s no other plants on there, I’d either get a female in for a seed run or try to collect some pollen for future use.

Its a sausage fest.


#14

Bummer! They atleast look very healthy.


#15

Yes, very healthy and I was very excited to be starting flowering, so quite a bitter disappointment. Oh well, fortunately I have some feminized seeds I can start now. And I’ve learned a lot so hopefully my next grow will be a success.


#16

Right on @Hogfather keepin it positive👍🏼


#17

Wanna borrow my hatchet? Sorry brother.


#18

I did say I was a novice, right? After I removed the obvious males from the SCROG I realized I had 2 plants of a very different phenotyp
