I don't know of a way to induce a Nep to flower. Even if there is, it takes time to grow and mature, and it wouldn't grow fast enough to help.
Thanks though.

Thank you for looking but i have decided not to try to pollinate the 2nd flower, the first one is taking so long. i need to get the plant chopped up to a size i can bring in the house this winter. (5ft vines already) I want to root the cuttings outside where its more humid, so i have to start as soon as the 1st flower is done.

If only they were compatible. It would be like breeding a cat with a dog.
