Sago Palm, Seed Pod in Middle


Anonymous added on March 27, 2011 | Answered

My 20-year-old sago has developed a 'seed pod' in the middle about four to six months ago.  It's still there and my husband thinks it's killing the plant.  He wants to cut it out, but I told him that if you mess with the middle of a palm, it can kill it. Please let me know what this thing is and what to do with it.
