No Sex Plants???

I ordered Feminized and Auto-Flowering seeds Only. In the 10th week now I noticed some plants never flowered but were stronger and taller and greener than the rest, They don't have "the male balls" on them. I pulled a few out because I did not want to risk pollinization of the females, but I think these
big tall, very green plants are sexless. I transplanted my plants outside after about 5 weeks. So now it has been another 5 weeks outside and a total of 10 weeks, and I am close to harvestng the girls. Has anyone else had sexless plants like these or could explain whats happening? This is my first grow

Sounds to me like they fucked up your order and you got some seeds that weren't autos mixed in...

Did you mean feminized auto flowering seeds? You worded it to sound like you ordered some of each.

I did order both types. Some were feminized and some were auto-flowering. I think the autoflowering ones grew shorter and were the first ones to flower. I think the Feminized ones grew taller and were larger than the auto-flowering ones. However there was a third type that grew larger and stronger than the rest and show no signs of flowering or the male balls after almost 11 weeks now. Almost all my seeds germinated. I just put the seeds in plastic cups with potting soil and added water. Very simple. When they got bigger , in about 5 weeks I transplanted outside. About 30% of theplants are large, Green, and sexless.

Let's play the strain game, what exactly did you order for seeds?

I actually misread the fact you ordered both auto and photos.... Sounds like a late finisher or two, check your strain info from the seed company.

You didn't say where you live on the planet so Ill give you the generalized version.
Plants which are not autoflower depend on a lowering of the duration of sunlight. It signals the onset of Fall and winter and triggers the plant to produce flowers for possible pollination.
Typically in southern Canada and the northern states the sun rises and sets in about 141/2 hours at this time of year
When the light reduces from 14 1/2 hours down to 14 then 13 then 12 etc the plant will go into bloom. They should be ready for harvest in approx. 8 weeks or so. It is usually ready by mid to late October.
Hope this helps

I know why my plants were not flowering. They were feminized and had to have less
daytime light. They also grew to about 4 1/2 feet tall where the autoflowering ones were between 1 and 2 feet tall. Fortunately I pulled less than half because I wrongly thought
they were males. The autoflowering were the first to flower, some even flowering before transplanted outside. 42N. I did not keep track for long which was which but I think I have a White Widow and Crystal Ice strain. Will a drop below freezing hurt a 3 month Old plant? Anyone ever use a Patio Heater in an outdoor grow area when temps deep below freezing? Its supposed to go as low as 30 to 32 late nite, with daytime highs of 50's and 60's. Will they keep growing if it warms up enough?

One plant that I castaway as a male with the root dirt ball intact kept growing in the brambles and underbrush and is now flowering with buds growing up from her side. This will be a special smoke.
