Q.Big Ball in Center of Sago
I have several sagos in my yard. We live in Houston. They are large and mature and always have grown well. BUT one of them now has a big ball in the center and it appears to be undeveloped leaves. The rest of the plant is turning yellow and is not healthy looking. Should I cut out the ball in the center? The plant is about 4 1/2 ft. tall and the ball in the center is a bit smaller than a basketball- about the size of a soccer ball.

It sounds like it may be flowering. This website can help you with information on that: http://www.rhapisgardens.com/sagos/sagoseed.htm
Do not cut it out, it will damage the plant.
