Pollen sacs not opening

In Bloom
Hi all. I bought some Blueberry seeds and wanted to make more to look through so I kept a male in a solo cup. It's got lots of pollen sacs but none have opened and some look discoloured and dead. I opened up some of the discoloured ones but pollen just discoloured bananas. I have it under my 400 and it was kinda close, probably within 12 inches, now I've raised it to 20-24 inches hoping it helps. Really want to get some pollen of this stud as he's super frosty, never had a male with frost before.

Any help I'd greatly appreciated.

Are there any leaves on him, I'm not seeing them in the pic. Have you got some full plant pics to post?

Not many leaves at all
Was a couple near the bottom that are just starting to die off. There's not much more to the plant than what you see. I can try and get a full plant shot.
Wondering if I should repot it into a 1 gallon. Or maybe I could try and reveg. It's got to be rootbound. If I had knew it was going to be this frosty I would have given it a bigger pot

I'd give it a shot for sure. I've had some pretty rough plants come back doing that route.

@Justblazin Looks to me like hes still got a lil time left before he starts opening the sacks to release the pollen. True males are usually quite giving in pollen and you dont really even need to intervene to get it once it is ready -it just starts dumping. Hows the temps?
The temps are 25-30
What concerned me was that alot of the sacs are dying without giving out the goods. I was thinking it was cause I had my 400 right on top of it like closer than 12 inches maybe even 8-6 inches. So I moved it up to 20-24 and re potted it hopping it drops some pollen and hopefully reveg after.
