    So after the start of 12/12, how long does it take to see the female hairs?

    10 days for me

    After a week you should check the plants intencly every day.

    Well, it can take up to 3 weeks for a long flowering sativa. It's normally 10 days though, because the plant has to get used to the new light cycle.

    Infact, i said that wrong, its normally 2 weeks, not 10 days for a normal plant.

    Sorry.

    Hmm...

    I've got 6 plants 12/12 now for only 6 days. All of them have tiny little growths where buds grow. Tell me this is noobie worry but 5/6 seem like male flowers...the other i'm not sure because it's not as far along...do the first signs of flowers always look like tiny little nubs? It's just bag seed and it's been pretty easy growing but I'd hate to have the last 2.5 months waisted by not having any females out of the crop...

    I agree with buster. Give it 14 days. Any with balls take out and kill them.

    If they have white hairs love and cherish them.

    a lot depends on the strain ... the Cinderella99 strains Im growing now, have the ability to 'pre-flower' automatically after about 6 weeks of vegging ... first time I ever saw this happen, pretty cool to see the sex before you even adjust the light-cycle, etc ... now I have clones 2" tall, with female buds, hairs ... :smokin:

    cool will do....as it stands one looks definetely female and the other 5 look male. The flowers on the ones I think are male are entirely different from the female and the female has sprouted little white hairs....Wonder if I should just keep growing or put her back into veg to make clones.
