    ive had it happen to me a few times.....in my limited experience with this sorta thing, if its a female it likely wont produce much seed if any in a situation like this.....course the plants it happened to me on were a lil more touchy than a ventricosa.....at the very least ild let a few flowers open to confirm sex and likely chop it, but thats me....

    I agreed with rattler. At this stage the roots are not established, either a male or female flowers wil not be very viable.

    Capensis, there's a double negative - positive in your statement, leaving me unclear as to what you were trying to communicate. I hope I was clear this time.

    I am in agreement with a few others here as well. You can even cut off the tip and let a couple buds flower to determine sex, but every time my cuttings flower like this, i get rid of them. The flowers will definitely eat up the plant's energy and slow it down. 3 months is not enough time for the plant to grow an extensive enough root system to support new growth and a flower spike. That's just my opinion/2 cents though. Good luck, and let us know how everything turns out down the road!

    Oh, haha. I mean that I don't think it'll do as much harm to the plant like VFTs. But the typo wasn't that confusing. Lol.

    Anyway, I'm probably wrong since it's a cutting and not a completely established plant. Lol.

    Only enough I had to ask what you meant, just that much.
