sexing a clone
I would rather not change the light cycle on my mother plant but curious as to how soon a person could/should put a clone into flower? They are starting some roots and moving from the aeroponic system to soil this week.
I have heard of some growers covering one branch of a plant with a bag, so no light gets to it, for 6 extra hours compared to the rest of the plant.
This makes one of the branches flower but not the whole plant.
I have never actually seen it done, so not 100% if it works, but worth a go and reduces the need to takes a cut?
Otherwise, as long as a cutting is over four weeks old ( the moms genetics) it will be mature and will flower. If its just to test the sex, then flip it as soon as its rooted and growing
the bag is annoying though get lots of humidity inside the bag careful with lights

Definitely could see that black bag method working well.
Another quick and simple way to find out sex is to cut a lower branch and put it in a cup of water inside of a dark cupboard, it should show sex in a week or less.
