My Sago Palm Has Two Heads This Year
Should I let both grow or trim one off? It had two flower posts and now has two centers at the top.

You can trim one off, but it will likely be lopsided after this.
Thank you Heather, It would actually be best to have my sago palm lopsided, because it was planted in a tight space, too close to a fence. It was there when I moved in. I believe I will trim the back head off and let the front head grow and it will be great for the place it is in. Do Sagos get two heads very often? I have lived here 8 years and have 5 large Sagos and this has never happened before.
New question: If you cut the bloom off, would it hurt the sago palm and would it keep pups from forming? My goal would be to keep pups from developing.
