Cutting Brown Fronds Off Sago

beandog2007 added on August 20, 2012 | Answered

We transplanted very healthy sagos from the backyard to the front. Now the bottom fronds are turning yellow/brown. Should I cut them off and is this just the shock from transplanting them? Same soil in both areas. . . more sun in the front. There are some that were already in the front that are doing beautifully!

Yes, this is likely caused from the transplanting and they should come out of thshock on their own given proper care while re-establishing their roots. You can remove the yellw/brown fronds, as these will not regrow, but leave anything green alone.
