Q.Sago Palms

Zone 8 (South Texas) | rbisking added on October 4, 2015 | Answered

I have two sagos that are approx 15 years old. They are about 6 feet apart. They are both healthy and gorgeous. One sago is a female. It produced its first batch of seeds two years ago. It has its second pod of seeds that I plan to harvest in the spring. The other one has never produced a male cone or a female seed pod. However, it produces pups like crazy. My guess is the female is being pollinated by other males from our cul-de-sac. Here are my two questions:

1. Any thoughts on why the one plant has yet to “show” its gender?
2. The female has yet to produce pups. Is that unusual?
