Have you read one of the grow guides?
http://www.marijuanapassion.com/Growing-Marijuana.html
Lots of good info there.

I would say it will be a waste of time to keep that male around, not to mention the chance of pollenating your girls. That pollen can travel a long way on the smallest breeze.
The females are usually done between 6 and 8 weeks, some strains take longer than that, I hear blue strains like to take their time.
The fingered leaf thing may change with age or it may not. Some have 5, some 7, and some three. How old is she? Did you change the cycle to flower when she changed or was it out of nowhere? Do you know the strain?

Your only option from regular stores would be flourescent types, either the long type or the compact type (swirly type that plug into a regular socket). They're not very strong and it take a few of them to get any results. I always recommend HPS (high pressure sodium) if you want some real results. Do you just have them under regular light bulbs now?

Those are going to do nothing for you in the long run, throw some pics up. They have none of the spectrums you need to grow anything more than a couple of bowls of scrappy herb.
Back to the 6 week old female, she started showing pre-flowers and not really flowering I would guess. That's usually when they reach maturity and start showing.
You won't need much HPS for just a couple. You could get a 175 wattor something similar for pretty cheap. Check Ebay.
