    I can't see anything definitive there, bro. At seven days in, you're in 'wait and see mode', sorry. The good news is, you are only days away from knowing for certain. Good luck. :)

    Thank you for the prompt response.
    Yea, that is definitely a positive way to look at it, couple more days. With youre expierience, if youve grown a male and caught it, what did the preflowers look like exactly. I see pics of male "preflowers". And there seems to be a variety of ways they reveal. The crab claw, and balls.
    Will it immediately display balls. Or look similar to a females preflower in the earlt stages? I appreciate your help on all accounts though.

    What I see there are stipules, what I want to see is a calyx with two white pistils coming out, and they aren't there yet. I do see what could become a calyx or a pollen sac, but it's not developed enough to determine which it is. If female it will become more fig shaped and produce pistils. If male, at first round, then more watermelon shaped until it begins to split and open with petals and pollen. Soon, brother. Stay positive and observant. :cool:

    I am aware of what stipules are.. If you zoom into the picture you can see what im talking about. Stipule is to the left the "preflower" in question sits to the right of said stipule. On the internode branch.

    Update.

    Week 1 and 1 day into flowering on a hybrid (indica dominate). I noticed my baby has her first pistil.
    If you look towards the top of the plant, to the right of the stipule, you can see the calyx. The pistil of that calyx runs along the stipule ( not attatched to the stipule or a part of it in any way) and then peeks from up around the base of that stipule.
    Thanks for all the help and feeback. Time obviously was the remedy. But its nice to get an idea of when to look out for the changes. I will continue to post pics of her progress.
