    My first nep is flowering! It is a miranda and I do not know if it is a male or female. Is there any way to tell early in the flowering process? If it is a female, how long will I have to polinate it?

    Look at the flower, if it's a ball on a think stalk, it's a male. If it's a ball on a thick stalk, it's female. If it's female, you should polinate within a few days of each flower opening.

    also the "caps" on males are more round while on females they are more oval.

    Thanks for the pics and the descriptions. It definitely appears male.
    Anyone need pollen? It has 3 spikes so far, one is almost 2 feet long now.

    Most varieties you can tell by looking at the bud. This is female:


    This is male:
