What am I? Type? Male, Female or Both?

Purchased seeds last June. Out of the seeds I purchased only three plants survived. New to growing so I chuck it up to growing pains. I am not sure what type of plant this is since the saved plant names ended up wet and unable to read.

What am I?

Also, am I Female, Male or both?

@Friesianluv welcome to the forum. That looks like a “true hermaphrodite.”

Did it start to flower early and did you stress it young? Light leaks? Heat stress?

I’m not 100% because it’s hard to tell in that lighting but it does appear to have some pollen sacs as well as female flowers.

Man I’m curious as to why it has only single and triple finger leaves, is that part of the hermi problem?

@Eggs those are male growth patterns. That’s why I was wondering if it flowered early and there was low light and a light leak. For a female plant to grow spindly like a male it would have to herm as soon as it flowered.

If it is a true hermie, you will notice that soon, very soon. Since it is the only plant you have, no worries about pollinating anything else. There are light issues, are you trying to grow in windowlight? Won’t work, sorry, not in your situation. In a few weeks or so you should see the male sacks continue to form. I only see female pistils emerging from the sacks but the males may be right behind. Let it grow

My Grinspoon looked Just like that when she began to flower. From the breeder “like lil beads on a string or vine.” Never Grew to flowers really.

I almost removed her because she looked male. Afterwards I bet I culled some females because I only got one female out of the whole pack.

Do you remember if they were called Grinspoon? Wet tag I know :upside_down_face:

Pinch the fullest calyx. If there is indeed inside I stand corrected. If soft and and squishes between fingers it could just flower like Grinspoon. Dip you think you had landrace Sativa or an unknown seed source?

I was waiting for you to tune in. I had a ‘feeling’ it might be Dr. Grinspoon, but I’ve only observed from afar without working knowledge.

So she hasn’t been on a lighting schedule?
She is a photoperiod that is revegging. That’s why she has single bladed leaves.
My guess is she has been grown in a window full time?
Looks female to me but highly stressed. Pronounced calyxes but I don’t see male flowers.

Calyxes plural
Calyx singlular
I would not squezze all the calyxes since so few. So I used singular calyx

Not sure if you received my email response. Here it is, sorry if duplicated:

Wow you are all so awesome! New grower and started with window light. She is one of three. My husband ask a few growers he knows and advised it was a male. So we separated her from the other two that are thriving fairly well.

Seeds started natural light, outside most the summer, brought in under grow light all three until we thought smaller of the three was a male, now back to natural light just for lil piglet. Lol.

Pics attached of the other two.

I thank you all for your insight and knowledge. Still learning the art of growth!!

Okay, I pinched the fullest calyx. It was soft, moist and fragrant. No seeds or anything hard like that.

Guess will get a smallish grow light for piglet and see how it goes.

Will keep you and everyone posted.

Thank you all again.
