    Hamish,

    I store my pollen in the freezer. I heard that it can be stored that way and viable for up to a year. Maybe that might bridge the hemisphere conundrum. I agree on the vining. My aristo didn't flower until this year off of a vining stem. My hamatas aren't into vining yet, but one looks close. One I'm growing in full sun like the aristo yearround, the other under partial shadecloth. It's taken a beating but has that look like it might vine. I know that my mature plants in sun always flower every year.

    Also my eymae I've had for years from a cutting has only produced uppers. Not even a basal shoot! That thing is a good 3 foot and still won't produce any basals. Like you I'm waiting for it to flower. It certainly is of age!

    Joel,

    Sorry to say that is a typical trait of eymae. It will vine for years and years without producing any basal shoots. However, it will produce numerous lateral shoots, so you will get plenty of branches. In these respects it can be differentiated markedly from maxima.

    Mine is about 5 foot tall, no basals, but 4 branches off the main stem. I'm going to take cuttings from it this year, and there are another 7 plump nodes that I'm sure will shoot when I cut the tips.

    Hamish,

    I was worried it might act like inermis if I were to take a cutting. I'd hate for the plant to go into some sort of funk after being cut and die like inermis seems to do.
