    N. gracilis nigropurpurea cutting flowering

    Hi all
    Has anyone had this happen to them? I took a couple of cuttings from my N. gracilis nigropurpurea 6 months ago. Ive been really busy and just had the cuttings sitting in water in my lowland terrarium. Well I was finally replacing the fan in the terrarium and I noticed that one of the cuttings that has grown to about a foot and a half is flowering. It looks crappy because the fan has been broken for a couple of months so I was wondering if the less than ideal conditions could of caused it to flower.

    Iím also wondering if I should pot it up or just leave it alone?




    Does anyone else think that Miranda and Lady Pauline are terrible names for a male plant?

    You could probably pot that up right now, the roots seem to have developed enough.

    usually when cuttings flower its because they were stressed and thats a last dich effort to continue its lineage. Those roots look rather healthy though! And is that a female?!

    Don't bother potting it up, just send it to me bareroot, lol.

    Seriously, pot it up, it looks fine.

    Its a boy!

    hi all
    its a boy. i was so hoping for a girl and the chance to make some seed. sorry it took me so long to get a pic.


    Ive also got a red alata cutting doing the same thing(also a boy) but that one has no roots yet. im thinking i should cut that one.
    It would be really nice to figure out a way to force this to happen. come up with a way to identify the sex of a plant from a cutting as soon as it starts to vine.
    what time of year do n.alata and n.gracilis normally flower? is this there natural time of year?
    thanks
