    Newly rooted cutting flowering

    Is this normal? Should I try to do something about it or just let it grow? I have a second cutting of the same plant (aristolochioides x spectabilis) which looks like it's going to do the same thing. Both cuttings activated 2 nodes when they rooted as well.

    Cuttings often do this - it's a kind of panic response to the damage of cutting. Flowers are costly for the plant, so unless you really need the pollen, I'd remove those blooms. (If it's female, don't pollinate them! The plant can't support seed production at this stage)

    I have no idea if it's a male or female vine actually. Should I cut the inflorescence or just pinch the buds off?

    Doesn't matter which you do.

    Thanks for the advice. There appears to be 2 inflorescences growing from that growth point I took the picture of, hopefully it doesn't try again after I clip them off.

    if there are two, its not so great because that often means that the bud terminates in a flower

    Id clip the flower stalk off

    Well if that does terminate that growth point, there's already another activated on the cutting, and a third unactivated node at soil level so it should be fine. Just as long as it doesn't try to grow flowers a second time after cutting those.
