Q.Sago Palm Yellowing Spines.

Zone New York City 10030 | Anonymous added on May 9, 2023 | Answered

Indoor, no direct sun. Purchased from a big box store in rather tight soil. Wonder whether I water too much. It never sat in any water. I repotted it with different soil – more like an orchid mix with bark to allow drainage. Reduced watering to once every two weeks. It continues to yellow. Is there a fertilizer I should be using or something to rescue? Thanks very much!
