Zone Colorado | Bdunnslater added on June 1, 2015 | Answered

How big does the pot need to be for root system on a full grown sago? 18 inches tall and 18 inches across is the size I have my sago in now. Can it be in a smaller one? They don't seem to be very long.

Has the plant been in this pot size for quite some time?
It would be unusual for a plant to go down a pot size if the plant has been doing well, or it has began to outgrow the existing pot.
It's important that the plant have good potting soil with proper drainage.
