I too have a Male plant received from Freshops and I have no objection with sorting it out with them and continuing to recommend them to potential growers. Sometimes this just happens as I have come to understand.
I am trying to determine if there are any environmental conditions that favor a specific gender and if it posible to force a Gender change but, I seriously doubt it's possible.
I consider my Chinook to be a loss but, have chosen to allow it to live as I have someone interested in the plant and I am going to donate it. So, I'll keep it alive and pull it out when it goes dormant.
During a recent harvest, I doscovered two otehr plants that exhibit hermaphrodite qualitites and have stareted some e-mail correspondence with growers to find out if it's possible to force the male persuasion out of the plant. Again, something I suspect is not possible.
