False Inflo?

I've had some people tell me it is probably a true inflo, but I just want some extra opinions! I really hope it's true, because I haven't really had an inflo before. My fingers are crossed!
Sorry for the image quality. In real life, it looks very much like a stalk underneath the top you can see in the picture.

You have an inflo - congratulations! Give it lots of sunlight and heat - it's so exciting, isn't it?!!!

It looks like a nubben or false inflow. If grown from seed, this is very common. Several of mine seedlings have done it and then branched. My first seedling (from maybe 2008) bloomed this year....very week and strange flowers. It takes a few years to produce the true flowers.

Sorry I forgot to mention that this is on a cutting of an Aztec Gold so it's not seedling, which makes me really hope it could be an inflo more than a false inflo... But either way I would be happy. When it grows more and I know which, I will post pictures and keep everyone updated.
Thanks for the feedback.

Wow, that's a tough call. Normally I'd think false inflo, but with Aztec Gold I don't think you any color on the buds until they're much bigger. Hope it's a true inflo for you!

RE: False Inflo?

That is a real tough call. I can't tell but I see several new branches getting ready to emerge. I just had a false info on a 5' tall 3 year old seedling, but yours doesn't look to me like the normal false inflo. I would think in a week or so if it's in the sun, you will know. Hope it's an info and you get blooms. Good luck!

I don't know if you can tell in the picture, but I see some yellowish coloring at the top of the buds(?) Picture update:
