Sago Palm Blooming

Anonymous added on September 9, 2011 | Answered

I have a sago and it had a big brown dome in the center and some new blooms came out of it. There are some red bulbs attached to the dome that opened up for the new bloom. I have several of these plants but none have ever had this type of center. My question is, what is the dome on this sago?
