Quick question: once these flower and start to die, are they male or female or both? And do they need another one around flowering at the same time to make seeds?

According to this source, they are monoecious (one palm will give fertile seeds): https://www.monaconatureencyclopedia.com/tahina-spectabilis-2/?lang=en

Not mine, but planted at a neighbors property. Possibly the largest I’ve seen here on the Big Island.

How does the size of tahina compare to corypha umbraculifera?
