    Neps start to flower when they are 3-5 years old...most likely 4 or 5. Cant tell if its male or female yet, but once it unfurls we will have an idea.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Now that it is unfurled any guesses? I'm thinking male but i could be wrong. It also looks like it is starting to put out another flower is this normal?

    It's male.

    I just had a maxima hybrid pop three stalks of flowers. The third was small in comparison. I removed them because it's an unknown and so not responsible to breed it IMO.

    I've seen weirder flowering habits. There's a N. khasiana at Meadowview that flowered on 2 of the vines, then 3-5 of the basals. It made so little sense. Congrats!
