    When the flower stalk comes out, the male flower's inflorescence will be very round and will have pollen. The female's inflorescence will be much more ovalish.

    Inflorescence usually refers to the part of the flower that actually does the "magic".

    The inflorescence is the scientific term for "flower stalk;" basically, it's the entire thing. I would recommend just being patient, as while it can take some time for some Nepenthes to flower (and some are more reluctant than others), once they do you can be more sure that it's because of good health and not stress.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    So, basically, just put it under good conditions and hope for the best.
