I don’t know 4/5 of my plants sex!

Hey farmers,
this is basically a “are my plants male or female?” Post.

So with my plants nearly reaching 1 foot in height I feel maybe I should of started LST a little while ago.
I want to start LST now, but the plants will clearly bend over the lip of the pots they are currently in.

My next thought of course is ok time to repot These babies in some 10 gal or 15 gal pots and then start LST, but I’m unsure of the sex for most of my plants and I really don’t wanna spend money on males. Below will be pictures of the unknowns.
if unable to sex them yet let me know what you would do in this situation.

1st plant:

2nd plant:

3rd plant:

4th plant:

The 5th I was able to do on my own as it turned out to be an auto.

I realize the pictures are most likely crap.(my hands shake and camera isn’t the best) but this is what I got.
Thank you all so much.

I'm not seeing any development of sexual organs currently. Repot at you're leisure.

Ok, think I’ll just risk it and repot.
Do you think repotting,topping,and starting LST all at once would be too much strain on the plants?

Yes. Let it transplant shock and recover. Then top and recover. Then LST and recovery. Should take about nine days to run the whole process. Thats just a conservative eatimate, other factors and your personal observations can lengthen or shorten the timeline.

A little update. I ended up purchasing coast of Maine organic soil and some coast of Maine lobster compost.

4/5 plants are now in 15 gal cloth pots with a little lobster compost mixed in each one. For my autoflower I decided to only go with a 5 gal pot.

Was quite sweaty after this transplant lol.

Definitely might set you back a little on the auto. CoM soil very reliable and I have had great results in side by side trials. They will establish fast in that medium.

Love to hear it, but Umm I’m definitely a little too excited and am not thinking ahead and now I have to deal with indirect sunlight for some part of the day.
I was moving the 1 gal pots into direct sunlight whenever the shade got close. I don’t have the best yard for sun.
So now with the 15 gal pots, I could move them still it’s just a lot more effort.
What’s your thoughts on indirect sunlight?
am I stressing the plants moving them? (I keep them quite steady when moving.)Should I just let them deal with some indirect sunlight?

Full sun or as close to it as possible. No need to move them all over. Find your best spots and park em. Use the KISS system and you will be fine.

Plants reacted fine to the repotting, didn’t seem to stress them out at all.
Today I topped all of them. (except the auto)
I will start LST tomorrow depending on how the plants look.

ok, so it’s nearly been 24 hours after topping, it has definitely stressed the plants out more than the repotting did.
here’s some pictures.

These 2 are the most stressed. A lot of the leaves up top curling quite a bit, and the tops are drooping a decent amount.
The other 2:

Not nearly as much leaf curling and the tops are dropping as well, but not as much as the other 2.

So the drooping on the first pictured plant got really bad, like it looked like I started LST on it without anything pulling it down, but now 2 and a half hours later:

This will probably be the last update on this thread for anyone who might come across it.
plants are doing fine after the repotting and topping. They looked great this morning so I decided to start LST.
I feel I could bend them a bit more but I am nervous being my first time, probably should of started LST while ago.
