    Now days the ways that people extract oils from the whole plant, grow them out as long as you can. Then make edibles or something even if it's premature it should be good for something. Good luck sir.

      I will say this...there are some who feel you can determine the likely sex from just looking at the seed. I tested this theory on my grow and will let you know if it turns out that it works. I do know there are things that can alter the sex while the plant grows, or even cause it to herm out during grow but this was just a guide to show that under perfect conditions, these seeds should be this sex:

        That is absolutely fascinating, ellz!!! I'm going to put it to the test mos def!!! I bought 10 Black Domina Regular seeds, and I'd love to weed out the males!! I'll let you know my results, and take some pics.

        Ok so update..with pictures
        ok so when I changed the water day before yesterday I notice a brown goop on all the roots thought it was root rot.. I might be wrong.. they seem to have taken to the new light just fine.. I raised the light to combat the extra heat.. seems like that wasn't needed I think I got hella lucky but they seem completely healthy and everything is fine
        Mine thing I'm curious about is on a few leaves there are "puddles" of a liquid and I have no idea where it's coming from

          Was seeing the slimy brown stuff. It has cleared after this water change.. imma keep an eye out for it but as of earlier today it seems to have disapeared but no I'm not really using anything like hydroguard I thought about getting it but I'm refraining for now.. if it pops back up I will also I've already read that lol good read..

          I damn near read this entire site before starting.. it's what I spent atleast 50% of my work shift doing lol.. and from time to time if I see something I remember reading about I'll try to find it.. I post because I like sharing and I always second guess myself and I have a memory like a gold fish.. and can't remember where something was

          Plus it's always nice for someone to help when you need it.. (I swear I'm not old)

        Update..
        all roots seem bright white so that's good I think it was just nute build up..

        they soaked up a lot of water in the last week so I take that as a good sign

        the water is clear instead of merky brown (when I made the water it was almost like swamp water) does that mean I'm not adding enough Nutes?

        Ok so the runt has so far the biggest buds but she has some lower branches that don't seem to be doing so good.. should I try to tie them in a position in hopes of getting more light?
        Leave em be?
        Of chop em off in preference for the main stem?

          Man they are coming along great! By your water being clear do you mean it's still got color to it but you can see through it or do you mean it is like water? Also, are you mixing it well after you add all your nutrients? I do mine in a 5 gallon jug and shake the hell out of it before adding it. It ends up looking like tea when I go to pour it in. It's brownish red but see through.

          I mix mine up in my 30 gallon tote.. use a big cooking spoon and stir my cauldron of growing elixer till it looks like chacolate milk.. or well chacolate water lol
          Then pump it in.. but no I mean from time to time I will check the rock wool to see how dry it is and poor a cup of water from inside the tote over it today it was crystal clear.. if this is why my roots are doing better I'm all for it but I'm just curious if I should add more
          Nutes but I really don't want to change anything specially since they are doing good but if I must I will for the ladies

          You only really need to add more nutrients when your plants show a deficiency in all honesty. However, I usually swap my nutrients once a week and top off with only pHed, HydroGuard water.

        Update time!
        Ok so just trucking along it seems.
        No real problems everything working smoothly
        two general questions nothing to serious

        1.) by the size of the buds how much time do you think I have, I move in three weeks will anything be harvestable and how much?

        2.) see the tall one in the back it's nearing the light I'm concerned for light burn any ideas I could raise the light but would compromise the amount of light runt get(I think)

          Side note
          learnt an interesting lesson few days ago..
          water was a little low so I figured I'd top it off
          put the pump in my back up tote to pump the pre mixed solution in and I did.
          then left for my mini vacation(2 days)
          When I came home about 4-5 gallons was gone and my first thought was is that even possible
          so went to check my back up to see if I even had enough to top off again and to my surprise all the water was back in the backup......
          apparently when I turned off the pump it caused a suction and cyphened all the water plus some in the back up so mixed again and pumped it back.. this time I made sure to remove the pump after finishing lol
