This is my first serious indoor growing with a well-decked grow-room. I have a bunch of females budding, about half were even feminized seeds. Then my HID crashed a couple weeks ago and I had to wait for a replacement to ship. I used a VHO about 8 days in the meantime, always 12-hour periods, but way less grow light. Anyway, about 1/2 my females (more each day lately), well-along budding, are popping up small male patches near the female buds at higher plant levels now. Maybe from stress? Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this, and what they do for it. Just pinch off any male patches that sprout up? And do think my diagnosis of the cause is correct, or is it likely something else?
