A monoecious cone (Pinus Ponderosa).

Monoecious is the term that refers to a plant or tree having unisexual reproductive units (flowers, conifer cones, or other structures) of both sexes appearing on the same plant; Greek for "one household". Plants bearing flowers of both sexes at the same time are called simultaneously or synchronously monoecious. Individuals that bear only flowers of a single sex at one time are called consecutively monoecious; "protoandrous" describes individuals that function first as males and then change to females; "protogynous" describes individuals that function first as females and then change to males.[1]
