You will get berries in a year or so, maybe a little more. The plants will flower before that, but they will most likely abort the seeds. This type of premature 'false' flowering is pretty common in coca.
Those plants look pretty healthy, would you mind sharing with us how you treat them?
From one coca grower to another: please, don't get scared when the sudden leaf drop happens, it will happen. My plants tend to do that in the exact stage your plants are in. After a slow recovery they grow twice as vigorous.

Distilled water?! Wow, that's something I would never do, due to the fact that it usually breaks apart plant cells thanks to osmotic stress. But if it works.. Keep using it!
Keep in mind though, that once the soil is depleted of nutrients, the water will damage the roots (since it will be devoid of salts). Typical for this kind of harm, is that the leafs tend to droop as if the plants are too dry, even though the soil is moist. As soon as you see that happen, consider switching to rain water.

Anyhow, good luck with these babies!

Awesome! Did it survive? My shoots tend to do poorly; every new shoot is accompanied by another on the opposing side. Either one of those makes it, the other doesn't. But then again, I'm dealing with 11 degrees C at night and humidities as low as 15%. Oh Europe..

Are you blasting them with cannabis lights perhaps? I have noticed that growth speeds up remarkably when they're put under single 20W CFL bulbs. I used to keep them under 2x55W T5's, but that's just too much for them. It helped a lot changing lighting; they're now keeping every leaf they produce, instead of letting the youngest ones die for a few times before one pops out and makes it. I think I'm seeing the same thing happen in the pic.

Those are lovely WT!
I grew a couple of these recently, started in august and they made it to December, they died rather quickly, and I'm pretty sure Jansteen answered why above concerning distilled water, so thanks to both of you, I will try again very soon!
