How do you tell a male from a female? I have two 10 year old plants and they look identical. They get morning sun filtered through a couple of live oaks. Thanks, Ken

Female flowering sago palms produce a round, fuzzy mass that is golden in color and males produce a long, golden cone-like structure.
