Sago With Brown Ends


Michmicmon added on April 25, 2015 | Answered

My sago palm has some brown ends to many stems. Do I cut just the brown off or leave it and it turn back green? The entire stem isn't brown, just the ends.

Sagos can experience brown tips from any of the following: cold weather/frost damage, too much sunlight, over-fertilization, poor draining soil, or soil that's too dry.

I wouldn't cut the leaves unless they are completely dry. My research indicated that pruning tips on some of the palms will stop the new growth on that frond.
