Sago (Cycas Revoluta) Has Dried Brown Frond Edges

My sago (Cycas revoluta) has 3 inches of brown dried edges on every frond, even the new pup. It’s about 4′ high and quite old (transplanted from another town 2 yrs ago). It’s in the proper partial shade light. I have it on a drip and try not to over water. I don’t see bugs. What to do?
