When you have a doubt about if your have a female or male marijuana plant…. read this thread. Differentiating sex of cannabis plants is easy. Currently, if we have a cannabis plant, it is possible to know if it is a male or female marijuana plant from the fourth or fifth week of growth. No need to wait until the plant begins to flower, although it is the easiest way to identify plants! Male cannabis plants, during flowering, form small clusters of “balls”, which after a few weeks open, and release pollen!
If you do not want to wait until the plants start blooming, you can know their sex during the growth stage. From the fourth or fifth week of life after the seed is germinated, you can consider that you have a sexually mature marijuana plant.
If we look at the nodes in the upper part of the plant with the help of a magnifying glass, we can see a small “pouch”, which indicates that our plant is male or a pair of pistils (white hairs) indicating that our plant is female. If it is unclear, it is possible that the plant still needs a week or two to become more mature sexually.
This technique is used to know the sex of marijuana plants that come from regular seeds. Today, a majority of seeds are feminized, so it is not necessary to follow these steps.
As a result, many farmers save time and space, knowing that all plants will be female since males are not smoked and usually only used for breeding work/play, to obtain more seeds or develop regular junctions.
The auto flowering seeds sold in the market are also feminized in majority, so you never need to follow these steps.99% of feminized seeds are female plants; only 1% of those seeds are usually male, so if you do not have time or space to rule males, our best option is to always buy feminized seeds.
