Sex determination in hermaphrodites? plants?

... like X, Y then if an earthworm is XX, how will it reproduce with itself to give male babies? 2} How is sex determined in plants? like in unisexual plants or bisexual plants? Do they have chromosomes for that? any other mechanism? Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
