I'm thinking thrips. I can't tell from the picture but do you also see little black spots? If so then that's thrip poop. They are cigar shaped critters and move very fast for how small they are. Take a white sheet of paper, hold it under the plant, and gently shake the plant while trying to catch anything that falls off. Thrips will try to run away very fast so be prepared with your camera as well.

It's not thrips or TMV or any of that, its just regular leaf variegation, normal and happens quite a bit in some strains. It will likely grow out of it, but if not it doesnt really matter. Its not a disease or anything, it's kinda like the plant version of vitaligo. Chemdog has it a lot, so does my forbidden zkittlez.

This is my FZ with it. Plant grew out fine. Was really good actually. Turned out to be one of my favourite strains in the room!

For sure its variegation. Thrips damage looks like a bunch of microscopic slugs were crawling on the plants. They leave what looks like super tiny slug trails that look almost shiny.

I have no science to back this up, But I was told once that quite often, plants that show that trait turn out super potent. Chemdog for example. My FZ for another.

Usually need to wait for preflower so yeah, 4-6. What I often do is as soon as I have a lower branch big enough to root I cut it off, label it and put it in a peat puck under 12/12 light. Itll show sex in a week or so usually and tell me if mom is a he or a she...

Yh can do that but only space it can go is with the female plants that are in flower. If they were to be male how long wud it take the pollen to mess up the female plants.
