How can I tell if my plant is male or female? I planted a seed two months ago and I still can’t figure out what I’ve got.

You should be seeing pre-flowers any day now, appearing in the middle of the node where branches meet the main stem. Use a loupe to look closely at any growth at the joint. Females will indicate themselves with stigmas, or fuzzy white hairs extending from a teardrop shaped bract (also known as a calyx). Male preflowers don’t have pistils; they resemble a closed fist at the end of a very short arm and eventually turn into a tiny bunch of yellow bananas hanging downwards.
