    Enclosed is a pic of 2 stems(?) I pulled from my palm trees. Are these both female at different times of blooming(?) or is the green one female & the yellow one male?

    This is my first time to post anything, so you may send reply direct to me at jimbrame@comcast.net if that is ok.

    Thank you.

    Hard to tell for sure as the pics are not in focus, but probably yes, a female above, and a male below.

    Emm, well, it's a bit late now that you've pulled them off. ;-) If you leave them be on the tree and have a good bit of luck, you'll have seeds ready to go in a few months. After that, yes, you'll be able to grow your own little palms. What kind of palm are these from?
