Sago Palm – Female
We have a female sago palm that produced a blossom ball that never opened. Should we cut it off or let it go? Will it continue to produce foilage as is or do we need to remove the bloom?

For a female Sago, we recommend leaving the flower intact. The flower grows very close to the plant and you risk damaging the plant by removing it and it will not hurt the plant to leave it. You may see slowed growth while it is flowering. This is normal and growth will resume once the flower fades.
