Botanical name: Cycas Revoluta
Common name: Sago Palm
Don’t overwater me and keep giving some of that good morning light. (Novice)
Feathery (but sharp), large quill-like green fronds. Definitely a conversation piece and unique addition to your ever growing plant family. Although palm is in the name, it is not a true palm. It is a member of the cycads genus – which dates back to when dinosaurs and Keith Richards roamed the earth.
As houseplants, these slow growers will reach about 2 feet in height when mature. They do need room to allow for their wide fronds.
Bright light, but not direct sunlight is key for the Sago. If you notice an almost bleaching effect on my fronds, this may be a sign of too much direct light. Move it away from the direct light source to help it recover.
These plants do not respond well to overwatering. Allow the soil to dry out fully in between. The Sago does like regular fertilizing - it's only needed every two months to ensure optimal health. They will thrive in a humid environment.
Light, well draining soil. A cactus potting soil would work well.
Toxic...and sharp! Keep this out of high traffic areas.
Toxic, keep Mrs. Nibbles away
