Would you like for me to host a giveaway on a specified date,or would you like something personally when I get ahold of something I don't really need?
It's no big deal, this for fun after all and learning that pineapples are apparently carnivorous to some degree is a treat in itself.

My hint is: An angiosperm that never flowers

But there is no such!
Gymnosperm would have to be a suitable answer,as after an entire hour of googling and wikipidea-ing,all I found was the word "Gymnosperm".

Yea, but maybe they meant it rarely flowers.

That could be possible, but we will probably need another hint. Also, nice choice on your new avatar! I like it :D

It is an angiosperm, and is technically capable of flowering, however in the wild it does not flower as in order to flower it needs certain hormones that it is not capable of producing enough of. If these hormones are artificially introduced to it it will flower.
