Sago Palm Soil

Anonymous added on June 18, 2012 | Answered

I have a couple of Sago Palms that I'm trying to keep from dying. One I have from when we lived in Florida, the other is one I bought at a local Walmart. We currently live in north Mississippi. Currently the Sagos are in pots with rocks and potting soil. We are starting to see the leaves yellowing. What would be the best soil to grow them in? Also, what type of fertilizer do you recommend?

Well-drained, sandy soil (like that for cactus should be sufficient). Use a balanced, standard fertilizer on it. Use a slow release type, and then you only need to fertilize 2-3 times a year.
