The flowers are small, green, inconspicuous, and clustered at the ends of branches. Male and female plants produce identical seeds which are released when the plant dies back down to the ground after flowering.

Seeds from male plants do not have this ability so they must be removed from the ground once mature otherwise more vines will appear.
