Q.Sago Palm Dying

Anonymous added on December 16, 2010 | Answered

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!

Yellow leaves in an office or houseplant tend to be because of overwatering or lack of nutrients. If you feel you are not overwatering, then look to getting some nutrients in the soil. When was the last time it was fertilized? I would recommend adding some slow release fertilizer to the pot, such as Osmocote, but any pelleted fertilizer will work. It will provide continuous fertilizer for the plant and that way you only need to think of it every 3 months or so.
