Year-Round Palm Needs Little Attention

The Perfect Palm
The Sago Palm boasts vibrant, feather-like foliage atop a textured brown trunk. The palm fronds are thick and shiny green with the typical cascading effect of other palms. It was in existence long before dinosaurs roamed the land. Hence, it has had plenty of time to perfect itself. It's actually considered a 'living fossil' since the species has changed very little over the last two million years. It appears so flawless, that it is often mistaken as an artificial plant.


Great Plant for Beginners
The Sago Palm is easy to care for, so it is great for beginners or those with less than a green thumb. Left unattended the specimen will continue to grow - no matter what, so Sagos are essentially a mistake-proof palm.  Water requirements are similar to that of a cactus and you should allow the soil to become dry between waterings.  It thrives in bright light but will adjust to moderate light levels.  Hardy to 20°, this feature makes these palms a great choice for many climates-even those that begin to stretch a bit into northern zones.


Grow it Outside or Indoors
Grown as a houseplant or enjoyed outdoors, the Sago Palm has a marvelous presence that provides instant tropical appeal. With its low maintenance habit and stunning appearance, the Sago is a perfect addition whether you pot it and bring it indoors during the winter, or if you are planting it in the landscape in warmer year-round zones. The Sago Palm will provide you with an elegant and breezy island look that can be easily grown in any space.

As pretty as they are, you need to know they can be fatal to pets if eaten

Sago is doing very well
I bought my sago in May/June 2014 and repotted it using special palm soil and have kept it outside. As of late September 2014 it is still very green and the new growth has established itself. I've given it liquid fertilizer 1x/month. Otherwise it survives on water when it rains only. I'm very satisfied so far.

This is a very slow-growing tree, and I expect it to outlive me and remain very small for years. I have cockatiels, and I was looking for a tree they would not strip naked. This works better than any "palm", because it is tougher. It also looks very green and pleasant, but I wish I had started with a bigger one!

My entrance way needed something to enhanced a green and pleasant appearance during all seasons living in the desert this plant adds a dark green and healthy look to any yard all year round.

Is finally growing!
When I received it last spring I put it outside when the weather warmed enough and it just sat and did nothing, but, It stayed alive so I let it be. Here in Portland, OR the weather got unusually hot unusually early this summer (actually, it got really hot in late spring) and it wasn't until this last week some new leaves came out from up the middle so I was doing something right! I hope it does well this winter when I bring it back inside. I'm very happy with my purchase, thank you!

Sago Palm Tree
I really like the Sago Palm Tree. It is easy to care for and looks pretty. It is a slow grower so it hasn't gotten much bigger yet, maybe a couple of inches. I see some other of them around town and really like to image when my 2 trees will be big enough to enjoy them

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sago Palm Tree

Sago Palm Tree Planting Diretions

The Sago Palm (also known as Cycas revoluta) is an amazing tree known for its lush green, feathery fronds and virtually maintenance free care. These hardy plants make wonderful patio or indoor plants and can be grown in USDA growing zones 4-11 but are only recommended for outdoor planting in zones 8-11. They thrive best in full sunlight but can tolerate partial sunlight as long as they receive a minimum of 4 hours daily. The Sago is a fairly slow grower maturing to a height/width of 8-15 feet.

Location: Sago palms need to be in a location with well draining soil. The same applies if you are containerizing your plant. They can tolerate bright to moderate sunlight but they cannot tolerate wet soil conditions. Wherever you plant this tree the soil has to be allowed to dry out in between watering the plant.

Planting Instructions: For warm weather locations, palm trees can be planted pretty much any time of the year. For colder regions, it’s best to wait until the weather warms up a bit before planting. If there is going to be waiting period before you plant, keep the palm’s roots moist but don’t soak them.

1) Dig a hole that is 2-3 times the width and just as deep as the root ball.
2) Handle your palm tree carefully when placing it in the hole. Be especially careful of the tree’s roots and the bud (or heart) because this is where your Palm new growth will come from.
3) Place the tree in the hole making sure the top of the roots are level with the surrounding soil. Tamp down as you fill in the hole to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Water the planting site and then mulch to retain soil moisture as well as keep competing growths at bay.

Watering: Watering for the first several months after planting is critical to the overall health and successful growth of your palm. Be sure to use water that is salt-free to avoid leaf yellowing/spotting. Keep a watchful eye on the soil, make sure there is enough moisture present to prevent it from drying out completely. That being said, you also need to make sure that you don’t over water, which could lead to root disease and limit the establishment of new roots in the surrounding soil. The typical rule of thumb with palms is to water once a week or more often as necessary, with less watering required during the dormant period in the winter.

Fertilization: Nutrients are vital for Palm trees to thrive. As a result, it is best to put your Sago Palm trees on a fertilization schedule throughout the growing season, three times yearly during the growing season. Feed your plants once in April, June and then again in September. Keep in mind Sago palms thrive best when their soil pH is between 5.5 and 6.5. In order to achieve this you can apply palm fertilizers that contain the specific nutrients most suited for Palm trees.The slow release of these nutrients will provide consistent, targeted feeding to help your tree grow strong and healthy. If you prefer, you can use a balanced fertilizer formula such as 8-8-8 or a 12-6-12 for quicker growth. To avoid yellowing and maintain a healthy shade of green coloring, feed your tree a few spoons full of Epsom salt or a fertilizer that contains nutrients like manganese which will prevent the yellowing and shriveling of the fronds.

can a Sago palm be cut way back? Say from 4 or 5 ft at the crown to 1 ft high? Can the balls be split and transplanted? mine are getting too big!
Bob B on Mar 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can prune all frawns when some look dead . The plant will quickly replace then with new ones. You can transplant the puppies or sucker plants from around the base . Add epsom salts 2times a year for fertilizer or use palm fertilizer . If your plant is a female and the bloom is fertilized you can root seeds buy planting them in sandy soil a few inches below the dirt. Thesuckers or puppies plant halfway in and halfway out of the dirt. Enjoy! Male plants will bloom with a yellow cylindrical pine cone looking bloom . They have a very sweet fragrance. And when ripe slightly open and have allot of pollen. The female Sago has a very spherical bloom tightly matted together does not open same color as the male bloom yet doesn't open. You can breed the plant by breaking off a fully boomed and open male flower and dusting it's pollen all over the female bloom. Several months later the female bloom will open to reveal it hundreds if not thousands or golf ball sized seeds very hard and orange in color. They say they are poisonous so don't allow dogs to ply with them and chew on them. I suggest handing unwanted seeds to politicians. Other wise plant them or discard of them in another way. Hop this helps
Why in the winter do the branches turn brown? The bottom layer needs to be cut off
Joanne T on Jul 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have a huge sago I planted about 15 years ago. Every winter it turns kind of brown. We cut the bottom branches off and it shoots up from the top with new growth. This is normal if you it gets cold in the winter where you live
Could it survive on a north-facing shaded front porch,with no direct sunlight?
larry l on Feb 12, 2015

What is causing yellowing of leaves on my sago palm?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: could be overwatering. leaves come out healthier if you trim back braches and force plant to grow new foliage. try organic palm fertilizer and water heavy only once a week.
My saga palm did not put out this year due to the cold weather; but I do see a yellow/green center growing with small pricks. Why is this growing Inside the center?
A shopper on Jun 10, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This sounds like you have a flower growing. Especially if it has a similar shape to a pine cone. The pricks are developing seeds. Remove the cone if you would like. The cone means that your Sago Palm is a male. Females develop a flower in the center that the male's seeds need to reach for pollination.
why do fronds turn yellow?
Victoria B on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My experience is too much moisture. I keep them in pots in the special soil for palms and cycads that you can get at Lowes's or Home Depot. They stay outside in full sun and I never water them except for a little liquid fertilizer once a month. They only get rain water. You can cut the yellow fronds off without harming the plant.
how fast does this sago palm grow?
Bob b on Jul 4, 2014
BEST ANSWER: About one foot per year.
I purchased one of these sago palms, and the trunk is all exposed. Does it need to be covered with soil like plant roots do?
Mary V on May 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, this is the normal look of the palm as it grows. There is no need to cover the trunk.
How do you take care of the palm when it grows that big thing in the middle?
Sylvia D on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The "big thing" I think you're referring to are new fronds. They will grow, unwrap and you'll have new fronds. cut off any dead fronds below the new ones.

Can you plant sago plant in a pot?
Briggittee P on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I did, and it's flourishing. I had it inside for a while, and then moved it outdoors permanently when I moved to growing zone 9. It seems to do very well in partial sun and with watering every few days, but there have been times when I gave it very little care and it still held its own. My sago palm has brought me much joy. Just make sure to plant it in a large pot, because it will definitely grow!
How far from the house should it be planted?
Glenda G on Mar 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We have the palm replanted in a large planter. It's about a year and a half that we have had it and it sits close to the house. However, the leaves can get sharp on the ends so we keep it farther away from higher traffic areas. It is easy to manage and grows well. Very low maintenance.
Can I grow the sago palm in grow zone 7?
kenneth b on Jun 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I live in Zone 8 ( Georgia), but I still have to bring my Sago Palms into my garage when the temps dip into the low 20's and teens. I believe that if you follow that formula in Zone 7, you would have no problems. I keep mine in large pots by our pool, and I can easily load them into a wagon to move them. I would not advise planting them in the ground.
Can the Sago be kept indoors all year? What kind of container is it planted in? Can it be kept in its original container and maybe that set in a decorative container?
A shopper on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This is a beautiful plant. I transplanted from the shipping container to pot that was slightly larger. I live in the north, I keep indoors when the temp drops below 50, the remainder of the time outside on my porch - afternoon sun. Water every 7 - 10 days.
I was just given a sago palm. It is currently in a small pot. I was told it is about 9 months old. I live inCharlotte NC and am wondering if it will survive outside?

how do I treat scale on sago palm??
DFriend on Sep 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Spray the entire sago palm making sure to get the undersides of the leaves with a horticultural oil spray, that you can find at your local hardware store. Reapply every 2 weeks for 6 weeks.
How deep should it be planted in the soil?
Jean D on Jul 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I've kept the top of the bulb about 2 inches above the surface and as it grew added topsoil and now only about an inch is exposed. I also add one scoop of Bougain (rich in manganese and iron) every month and they have done much better. (I actually had mine tested at Cornell plant lab to find out why they kept turning brown). This has worked well. Can order it on Amazon.
Can I get a female sago if I want one?
Christine H on Mar 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They normally don't flower until they are at least 15-20 years old, so we cannot guarantee if they will be male for female.
what are the large pods which have seeds growing in the middle are they seeds or fruit, if they are seeds how do you plant them?/
james K on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Female Sago Palms produce seeds that you can propagate.
LINDA G on Jul 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You can try, but digging the root ball of an established palm is dicey. I would recommend checking with an arborist and have them dig it and move it.
