In this recent question the shy flowering nature of Epipremnum aureum (Golden Pothos) was discussed:

Where can I find a picture of the inflorescence of Epipremnum aureum (golden pothos)?

To summarize: (1) The two first and only observations of the plant flowering date back to the 60s and (2) genetic analysis yields a potential explanation for why the plant is so rarely flowering

Question: Is this sufficient evidence to conclude that E. aureum has lost its ability to reproduce sexually?

(Triggering thought: It is very unlikely that two specimens flower simultaneously, at a distance from each other that allows pollination, that pollination actually takes place and that the seeds germinate and successfully grow into new plants)
