Pak Choy usually go to seed whenever there is a seasonal change or sudden change in temperature. It can happen when the weather turns hot from cold or cold from hot, or just a few colder days during spring or summer.

Hi Prasadi, it means that you have let them grow a bit too long, and they might be a bit tough or strong flavoured. Usually you would pick pak choy before any flowers open. You can still try eating it - it might be ok.
