No, they do not have male and female plants. There are many reasons your plant may not be blooming. The first is that it may be lacking phosphorous in the soil. Some balanced fertilizer will help with that. Another reason is that it may not be mature enough to bloom yet, while your boss's is. The light may be another factor. Not all light is created equal. A southern exposure light is very strong while a northern exposure window's light will be weak and may not be providing enough light for the plant to be able to bloom.
