My Sego Palms, which were planted at the corner of the driveway and the street, have now grown to 5′ to 6′ feet tall. They, of course, block the sightline of on-coming traffic and is dangerous for me and my wife and much more dangerous for visitors.
I want to prune them to approx.three feet tall and let them continue to delineate the corners but not harm the growth or the beauty of the plant. I’m from Atlanta but retired to the coast and clueless about tropical plants –red clay is MUCH DIFFERENT from Georgia coastal sand!
Please help me solve this troubling problem. -
I live in Middleburg, Fl. In one section of my yard, I have two sago palms. One started getting white spots that looked similar to a mold. I sprayed it with Immunoz, but it continued to spread and got on the one next to it. The prongs of both plants did touch each other as they are only four feet apart. Anyway, it spread to the other one as well. I read your how to prune sago column, unfortunately, after I had already pruned them. The worst infected one has no prongs left and they all had the spots; the other has four prongs left. Help !!!
I have a sago palm at my office and the leaves are turning yellow. It says not to over water the plant, so I don’t want to do that. Any helpful information would be great!
What is the easiest and cheapest way to separate baby sagos from the host plant? What tools and equipment are required? What about infection and disease control?
I have read articles describing the removal of the pups from sago palms. They have described removing the pups and allowing them to dry for a week, or ‘harden off’ before planting.
However, none of the articles indicate if anything should be done to the ‘mother’ palm after removing the pups. Should the ‘open wound’ where the pups are removed be protected in any way? If so, what are the recommendations?
Do we cover sago palms when it is below 32 degrees? We live in Orlando.
My small indoor Sago Palm’s fronds have recently started to twist. Why?
