Sago Palm Low Light Problem

Anonymous added on May 22, 2011 | Answered

I have a Sago palm that is about 8 years old. I moved it into a lower light area and it grew super long fronds that are triple the size of the older fronds. Should I remove these long fronds and move the plant to a well lit area? How do I trim them if that's what they need?

I would leave the fronds, but would definitely move it to a better lit area. They get leggy like that when they do not have enough light.
