Sago Palms

A very large Sago was cut back rather vigorously and there are many pieces that were chopped off and left with a large piece of the white root exposed. These pieces have fonds attached and are very healthy looking. I have left them for 3 days now in a cool dry place but I need to know if I can merely plant them as is. I live in the middle east where it is really warm during the days and ever so slightly cool at nights and early mornings for now. It does get a little colder in Dec/Jan but not freezing and not with frost.

I would wait until it makes enough of a recovery to look somewhat normal again. Transplanting now would likely result in the plant having to work extra hard to regenerate, and adapt to the new environment. If you are able to wait, then you will be better off to do so.
