I’m growing two plants outdoors, both of which seem healthy and happy. HOWEVER, one of the plants turns out to be a male, which has flowered profusely with long stalks covered in male pollen flowers; the female has itself started budding. I only separated them about a week ago, so I don’t doubt that some pollen got on the female; even now, they’re only about 50 or so feet apart in separate yards. The plants are both for producing edibles, so all I care about is what I can extract when it comes time.
What should I do with my flowering male? Should I get rid of it? Let it continue to grow and flower? Will it still produce useful amounts of THC, terpenes, and other cannabinoids?
What should I do with my female? If any of the flowers have been fertilized, what does that mean or imply?
