That's what the first leaves do. They almost all have that kink. Another visual. Determining sex should also be easy without a flip. Not shy to show pistils from 5 weeks.

Ok, weekly update...

The two bigger ones were planted May 24 (24 days ago)

And the youngling backups were planted on the last possible day, June 10 (7 days ago).  

My stupid pump timer circuit stopped working, so I'm just watering by hand, every 2 days. Will fix the timer when I get around to it, and put all 4 plants in the same reservoir.

Growth seems a bit slow, probably time to increase the wattage soon. But plants doing alright. Stems getting thicker. Lower leaf maybe starting to lose some colour. Will add some extra cal/mag/nitrogen in the next watering.

Yup yup yup, hope everyone had a good long weekend!

Removed bit about leaf curl - didn't see Totemic's post about it being normal.

Thanks for reminder.

They're coming along, slowly but surely. Turned up to 50W now. Added a bit of Cal Mag, might have helped.

Will likely top the two bigger plants this week.

Little seedlings just doing their thing.

Plants coming along. Will likely upgrade their setup soon. Topped the two.

Quite different phenotypes. One has thinner leaves than the other. Both very ruffly though.

Bit of a discolouration issue on the lowest leaves. I will try find some time soon, to flush and redo the nutrients.

I'll likely change the lighting this week, as I'm happy with the node spacing.

Thanks for the reminder.

So yeah, I haven't got around to upgrading the light, or fixing the pump timer, lol.  Nothing showing signs of sex yet.  

Lots of new growth on the one plant, after topping.  Still some nutrient issue on lower leaves.

Will try find some time this week to increase the lighting from 50W, and change the spectrum, and get back into the competition.

Added another 20W of light. Up to 70W now.  

Added some mycoroot for the hell of it.  Nothing showing sex signs yet. 

Nute issue spreading 😞  Gonna try flush and fix the nutrients this week.  Might even measure the pH and EC this time.

LOL!! I rate it could help narrow your search for problems 😋

Yup turned out my pH was way too alkaline. 

I've plucked the worst leaves, and it looks like the colour is coming back now.

The one bigger one might have female preflowers. Hard to tell.

Update

Just plucking along. Testing out a 3000K QB at 100W now. Put in new pots. Got an extra seedling in there now, a 'Black Valley' from Ripper seeds.

Hoping the big one is female, but no clear sign yet. Probably have to flip to see.

Set up some small tents. Upgraded pots. 

I topped one of the smaller two and left the other one, just to see what happens. Might top the second one too, later.

No signs of sex yet. Accidentally flipped to 12 hours for a couple days. Seems like people are starting to flip. I'll probably flip the bigger ones soon then. 

Bigger ones have a 100W QB now, and the smaller ones have a 75W COB.

Those look like very miniature tents, what size and if you don't mind me asking how much were they?

@PsyCLown We've started stocking "Dark Box" tents.  These ones are 60x60x140.  MSRP is R1600.

Well, good news and bad news.  

Good news:  I have a female! It's the one I thought I topped.  Seems I fimmed it, as the regrowth is lopsided.

Bad news is, the other 3 are almost certainly males.  They don't have balls yet, but the bits are looking more like balls than not.

I've started a new round of seedlings, so I will take the the males out to make room for feminised seedlings this week.

So, it looks like this will be my plant.

Weekly update.  So, down to just the one July 10th baby. 

42 days old now (End of week 6).  Got one 70W COB in there currently.

(Black Valley - Ripper Seeds, in the background, catching up)

Yeah, I'll probably take a cutting, give it a few days to heal, and then flip it next week, so that it can finish up before the comp ends.  I don't think my chances are very good, after looking at the other entries, so I'll be happy to just stay in the race, and have a clone to work with, in case I particularly like chocolope.

Update: Just letting them grow. Flipped to flower. Still at 75W.  Chocolope in front, Black Valley behind
