How to Transplant Sago Palm

I recently purchased a sago palm and wonder how and when I should transplant my plant. It has small pebbles on the top of the plant. I am not sure when it was watered last and if I should water it now or later. Thanks so much for your help.

The sago palms that have the pebbles glue to the top of the soil can be difficult to transplant as the pebbles are typically epoxied to the soil and plant roots. You will need to carefully detach this from the pot in order to repot it. I would recommend repotting when the plant begins to get rootbound. This article will help you to determine that:

I would go ahead and water it now.

Sago Palm Seeds

My neighbor gave me some seeds that came from his sago palm. He could not get them to sprout. How do you grow these from seed?

Sago Palm

My gardener removed all fronds from sago palms and left just the male cones. Are my palms ruined? When I saw them I was very upset! What care must I take for them to survive?

If the fronds were yellow or brown, then they were in need of removal and new ones will eventually regrow. With green fronds, it is difficult to say how well it will come back since sagos do not respond well to lost fronds. I would give it some time, at least another month or so, to see if it will regrow fronds.

What Is the Minimum Temperature for a Sago Palm at Night

I have a sago palm, but I live in Alaska, so in the summer I want to put it outside (which I can later in the summer for sure). It is already starting to be in the mid to high 60s. But the nights are a little chilly. Can you tell me what the minimum temperature it can take is at night?

ANSWERS

Technically, they can take temps down to 10F, but I personally would not push it past 25F.

How Long Does It Take for a Sago Palm Tree to Form New Leaves

I am just wondering how long it takes for a sago palm tree to form new leaves from the beginning when they have only six (6) leaves. Thanks.

ANSWERS

You should see new growth in just a few weeks. It does depend on how ideal the conditions are, but as long as they are not dormant (i.e. winter time), new growth should be seen in a few weeks.

Sago Palm Leaves

We rescued two sago palms from a friend’s bed where the leaves are brown–we assume frost bite. Should the brown part be removed from the plants?

ANSWERS

Yes, you can remove the brown fronds, as they will not grow back, but leave anything that is green alone.
