Flower spike emerged on my N. x miranda. I think it is a female. Anyone have an opposite gender?

N. x Miranda is a clone so it should be male. Otherwise, if yours bears female flowers...is a Miranda look-alike and not Miranda. :flowers:/>

Cut the stalk off unless you want to store the pollen because it causes the plant to stop pitchering in most cases.
