I know this question gets asked a lot but trying to figure out if this crop is male or female. I was hoping for some help. I'm not sure on the females if I'm identifying the new growth as female or not...?

I forgot to label one. Is image 5 male?

Also, on all the 4 I had questions on you identified them all as male. I was wondering if you could tell me which characteristics specifically helped you make this decision? I'm not doubting you. I just want to understand so I can tell in the future. Did I identify all of the other ones correctly?

Male.

Ok males will be round or as I describe like a watermelon you can see even stripes where it splits open like a flower would in multiple place evenly around it. It also often has a tiny stem at the base connecting it. As it progresses you will see a small cluster form around it like tiny balls.

A female will have a more stretched tear drop shape, no stem and only 2 stripes on opposing sides where it splits open and the pistils come out. The pistils are the 2 small hair like protrusions that confirm it to be female.

Maybe take a close look at the last two and see if you can sex it
Well they are the only ones that I wasn't sure of because they don't have balls. I think they're both females albeit I can't find any pistils I'm assuming it's simply due to the fact that I haven't switched to 12/12 yet

Did you show all six? They were all showing if so

I don't see any males. I think I see a female but check on it in a week. The males usually show earlier so I think you are clear but nothing obvious yet. Maybe one pistil in there but I could be mistaken

Thanks! Yea these are all from the one hydro plant I have left. The other one is soil and it's slow growing. I didn't see any pistils and the others seemed to have a ton of male parts. So hopefully good.

I'd keep checking constantly till u confirm them as female/male(daily at least)u dont want to wait a week and it sprays ur room with pollen in the meantime,and kill any with balls straight away,better safe than sorry!.good luck.76
