how to tell if a seed is female

Having said that, this could all be a big coincidence. However, if this turns out to be a fact, then the world of growing has made a huge step forward!

Firstly, I’m pretty new to posting on this forum so hopefully I posted this in the right category.

If the sprout comes out of either SIDE of the seed, it is a MALE.

If the sprout comes out of either the TOP or BOTTOM of the seed, it is a FEMALE.

Out of the other 3 plants that were potentially female, all 3 have shown sex and guess what, all 3 are Females.

I always see this question everywhere, "Can you tell if a seed is male or female?"

To tell if a seed is male or female, you must first germinate it.
Once the seed sprouts, you need to look where it sprouted from.

We know that determining the sex of cannabis seeds cannot be done. However, it’s unclear as to whether environmental factors have any place in determining the sex of marijuana plants.

So where do all the myths from sexing cannabis seeds come from?

This same chart states that females will also roll easily across a table or surface, while males will not. While it does say that a magnifying glass and pair of tweezers is needed to examine the seeds. neither of these tools will make it any easier to determine the sex of cannabis seeds.

Common myths on identifying the sex of a cannabis seed

Unfortunately, there’s not much truth to any of these interpretations. It’s simply impossible to tell just by looking at them what the sex of any cannabis seed is. If it was that easy, feminized marijuana seeds would not be as popular as they are. People could simply buy regular seeds and look at them themselves.

While environmental factors may not necessarily determine the sex of marijuana plants or cannabis seeds, it is known that certain environments can change the sex of a plant.

While growers may not be able to determine the sex of a seed, does the environment have anything to do with it? This is something else that has been hotly contested online.
