    You can't really "make" Nepenthes flower, they do it when they are good and ready. Kinda likebosses, they give you a raise when they are good and ready.

So as far as getting your plants to flower, treat them like any Nepenthes....wait. Thats all you can really, is wait until they get large and mature enough.

    Hi Everyone,
    I have seen N. madagascarensis flower! It took a vine nearly six feet long to do it, growing in straight long fiber sphagnum in very lowland conditions in a friends greenhouse. It has the reputation for being difficult, but this plant grew like a weed. The bloom spike tip was near the apex of the greenhouse, and the plant was in a large pot sitting on a standard greenhouse bench.
