Can you help tell me the sex or is it too early?

Are these autos? I tend to have some sneaky females waiting a while to show their sex growing ruderalis

Is it too early to tell the sex? I really hope I get a female this time. The age is 28 days (from seed).

Thanks,
Looks male bud but wait it out to be sure. If those are pollen sacks they will stack up like coconuts before they drop pollen, you will be able to tell long before it causes you any issues. This is how a male looks before dropping pollen for reference.

I really have no idea if it's an autoflower or not, I have them constantly vegging since seed.

4th time I try to grow and first 3 turned out male. Bad luck. Here are 2 more close ups I just took

Thanks for all the comments.. I'll wait another week before I pull the trigger.

Don't be pulling the plug just yet but they both look possibly male. Just watch for white hairs popping out of those little pre-flowers. On the 2nd pic it looks like hairs starting to poke out so should be out in a day or too if it's a girl. Can't tell with the first pic.

Good looking plants tho!

:peace:

It looks male, but has resin all on the leaves and such. If it turns out a pure male and not a hermie it may be worth keeping for breeding.

One day I would like to get to the bottom of why people are having such a hard time figuring out plant gender.....plant anatomy is literally the easiest thing to figure out. You just look at a picture of a male and female pre flower once in your life and compare it to the pre flowers on your plant..if you can't tell, wait a day or two. It's not rocket science. I have people come to me all the time asking me to check the sex of their plant. My usual response is "do you have the internet? If so type in male vs female marijuana plant".

It's like people are unable to do that themselves and just want everyone to hold their hands. We should make it a requirement that you can visually tell the difference between a pollen sack and a calyx before you can post here. I'm serious. Someone that is interested in cultivating marijuana should know this before attempting to grow. It's something that will take a second on applications, and will filter out a thousand posts a day asking the same questions. There's probably tens of thousands of posts here were people confirm and explain gender over a decade, yet people are completely unable to check them and use their skills of deduction to spot the difference between two pictures and their own plant.

Maybe your hunch is right? I took pictures again today and is that a pistil I can see? Hyped, however a bit concerned about the pre-flower on the adjacent stem is not showing anything yet.

@VincenzioVonHook Maybe you've grown your fair share of plants and it's trivial for you but understand that it's a bit confusing to new growers especially that a female pre-flower could look like a pollen sac right after it emerges. However I totally agree with you regarding patience, patience is key.
