    Not just me, about 5 other growers I know who've tried it. One of those species that simply resists. The only other plant I know of that won't grow from cuttings is x trusmadiensis. Given that lowii will grow from cuttings, it must be from the macrophylla side.

    I'd wait for it to flower to determine the gender myself. Once it flowers then chop it back for a nice bushy growth.

    You know you can still cut it down to one of those growing nodes. This way you get both of your wishes, chances of getting a flower and some extra plants.

    i like to clip the very tip off of my vines, then let the shoots growing at the nodes grow untill they are big enough to pot up.
