Sago Palm Female

My sago is about 17 years old. She has her crown for fertilization, but there are no other male plants around for her to flower. She had not thrown new fronds–I think because of her crown, which is still in place. Should I remove this, how do I do this or what is the proper thing to do?

The flower will eventually die back and the plant will resume normal growth. You can remove it sooner simply by cutting away the flower stalk. This can be difficult if the flower has already opened and it may just be easier to wait.
