  1. Grow plants to teenager size and in flowering stage of season. (Late Summer/ Early Fall)
  2. Scope around the nodes of the branches to see if you find the pistils and stigmas of a female plant or the pollen flowers of a male plant.
  3. Remove the male plants by hooding with a trash bag or cover then snipping at the ground being careful not to release pollen around the female plants.
