    How do I determine a female sex plant from a male?

    Preflowers, as opposed to full blown flowers, generally appear after the fourth week of vegetative growth from seed. Check carefully above the fourth node. Please note that preflowers are very small and impossible to differentiate without magnification. A photographer's 10x loupe is handy indeed when examining preflowers.

    As the images below demonstrate, the female preflower is pear shaped and produces a pair of pistils. Frequently, the female preflowers do not show pistils until well after the preflowers have emerged. Thus, don't yank a plant because it has no pistils.Pistillate preflowers are located at the node between the stipule and emerging branch.



    The male preflower and flower may be described as a "ball on a stick." Frequently, a male plant will develop mature staminate flowers after prolonged periods of vegetative growth. These appear in clusters around the nodes.

    The following image shows a male plant in early flowering. Staminate flowers are located at the node between
    the stipule and emerging branch. Note the clusters of flowers.

    males =look for the football shaped pollen sacs to form under the nodes.. then get his ass outta there. females= white hairs or pistols, no pollen sacs..

    Males will germinate the females and you will have seeds. A great deal of buds can be lost due to seed production. Removing males makes female spend all their energy on creating sticky enticing traps for possible pollen. This is what is smoked :D

    cant you save the male plants and use the leafs of the males to smoke? I also heard if u take the male leafs and rub them against the female buds that the male leafs will pick up more thc and will get you more high.

    Im going to assume by your name that your joking, but just in case your not, if you save the males you will pollinate the females and produce lots of seeds on them and they will not be close to as potent as seedless females will be. As far as rubbing the male leaves on the female bud, you could rub a T-bone steak on them and that will increase its thc content but not enough to get you high.
