Would two weeks into flowering (generally) be to early to ax the male plant from the roots... And for clarification. A male plant will continue to flower regardless of the light cycle? i.e. I could just put the male in my bedroom...?

Nice method New guy..
I do agree with VerdantGreen. You should dry it before freezing.
I will add that after drying you should divide pollen into tiny containers, I like the perfume sample glass tubes. I like to leave little paper packages in each tube with some rice in tube under it.
The reason for small tubes is so you only defrost a Lil at a time when needed leaving the rest frozen which let's it stay viable for years.
If you use 1 container you can't refreeze pollen as cell walls rupture from 2ND freeze.

Great thread New Guy

Mr.Spliffy has a valid question here. I would like to know, and I'm sure there are some other readers that would like to know- What is the expected flowering time for a male plant?

I had a Black Widow male drop pollen 3 days after showing me he was a he.

Most other males I've worked with give me a week or two after showing before they start dropping pollen.

From that one experience w the BW I'd say your best bet is to keep an eye on your boys.
