Well you were right. It's a male lol. So does each species have a higher common rate of being male or female? Or is that just a specific thing with Miranda? Anyways guess my wishes have changed. Any active females right now?
It's not a species issue, as much as a "clones available in cultivation" issue. Remember that many commercially available plants are mass produced in tissue culture, or propagated vegetatively via basals/cuttings. This means that though there may be thousands of plants in circulation, these are generally clones (genetically identical) of only a few individuals (could be as few as 1). This individual, or the majority of the individuals, may by chance all be male/female. This results in an artificial skew of males/females not necessarily present in nature.
It also means that if everyone has the same clones (miranda), and they're known male/female clones, then one can predict what a young plant is before it flowers, as hcarlton has.
Post some pics if this Miranda. I have two different Miranda clones that have not flowered for me yet. These two are slightly different from each other and I'm curious if yours matchs the appearance of one

plantguyty1: Does anybody need pollen? I have N. Miranda it's the first time it flowered for me so I do not know if its sterile or a good candidate. Is there anybody with an active female that would like to give my pollen a shot?

borneo: Yes, they work superbly. But you don't need expensive lights, cheap ones work well too.
