Any way to tell (besides waiting) if this is pre-flower or if I got auto-flower seeds?

We're still in veg stage, and I've only seen white pistils like this after flipping to 12/12... I'm trying to hold back from leaping to the hostile conclusion that I got duped and these are auto-flowers. Obviously another week will show for certain.

I've already leapt to that conclusion but the older I get the more I realize new ways that I'm impulsive and impatient. Figured it might be a learning experience. Buying seeds online really seems to be a shit-show.
buy them from reputable sources and it isnt. Seedsman, ILGM, Seedsherenow. all 3 great companies. seedherenow is owned by james bean and hes been on plenty of podcasts. i trust them the most because i know hes a stickler with who he carries and he vets their processes. no pollen chuckers allowed.

Same here. Every year I wait until sept 18th for the Boston Freedom Rally or I hit up some local events like the TerpTown Throwdown. In 2019 I got some stuff from topdawg seeds even got a shirt and shot the shit with JJ for a while. I love to be able to talk right to the breeder. They always have great advice on growing their cultivars. TopDawg isn't going to be there this year. But he was at the Throwdown.

Id say preflowers at first glance but if they continue to throw out more then yeah auto. Looking closer it looks to be flowering but give it a few days and you will know.

i might also add. if you grow the freebies you gotta understand the risk. the freebies are probably testers and not ready for a release. sometimes you get scary stuff.

I had the same problem with growers choice. Set me back two months. Learned a lesson though. Always pop extra plants and get a variety. Fuck their credit And their business! I don’t want anything more to do with them! Hang in there Nate.

Interesting development: I left a 2 star review on Trustpilot and Pacific Seeds asked me to fill out their Germination guarantee form. My expectations are low, but I filled out the form... we'll see what happens.

They will probably replace them. GC offered to replace mine but it wasn’t worth the hassle to get a bunch of questionable replacement seeds. Rather be done with them. I have noticed the ones that I have gotten to grow don’t seem to resemble the type of plant I ordered. Could do a wholeSeason of Montel Williams growers choice edition. Good luck man. Take the replacements and hope for the best.
