Male or Female Plant?

How can I tell a male plant from a female plant?

You need to check the plant when it's flowering and take a close look at the blossoms. Female flowers contain a swollen vase-like structure called a pistil. Male flowers have long, thin filament or pin-like structures called stamens.  Some flowers are "perfect" and contain both the male and female parts.
