    Wide fat leaves tend to be from an Indica strain. Very thin leaves tend to be from a Sativa strain.

    You will usually have leaves that are somewhere in the middle, but tend to be a little wider or a little thinner; judge accordingly.

    The problem is that judging a strain by the leaves is like judging a person by the colour of their skin.

    Indica leaves are more rigid, its said the far northern/southern early maturing varieties of land races/pure breeds have more rigid leaves. Sativa's on the other hand originating from the equatorial area/tropics have the skinnier longer fingers with close blade formation, hope this helps. The fingers have something to do with collecting water from air im not 100% sure at the moment, just being a parrot as 2 what i read online a while back.

    You won't be able to tell until they are a couple nodes old. I grow Purple Kush from bagseed and Master Kush from Dutch Passion and they look completely different as far as leaves and overall structure. The Purple Kush has broad leaves with deeply serrated edges and grows short and compact while the Master has medium to thin leaves and tends to grow more upward.
    The above post is fictional and should in no way be taken as truth.

    If I were to grow cannabis, I would only do so to supply myself and my close friends. Doing this would take myself and my friends out of harms way by knowing the source of our cannabis, as well as take hundreds of thousands of dollars off the black market annually. It would also lower the demand of black market cannabis, and would ultimately help keep cannabis out of the hands of minors.

    Looks like one is a nice heavy indica.

    The other just needs water LOL.

    Hey, if you are having trouble with seedlings try foliar feeding them with a fine spray mist and a very mild fertilizer. Use distilled or filtered water.
