Sago Palm is one of the easiest houseplants you can grow, and it's no wonder. This plant is a living fossil, dating back to prehistoric times. If Sago Palm has survived thousands of years relatively unchanged in nature, it should be a good candidate for your living room!
Showing off dark green leaves that look feathery, the fronds top a swollen stem that almost looks like a scaled bulb. Sago Palm is perfect for adding a touch of the tropics, but also looks right at home with contemporary, country, and other home design styles.
Grow sago palm in medium or bright light. It does best in bright spots, and sago palm can take direct sun on its foliage when grown as a houseplant, even in hot summer areas.
Water sago palm when the top inch of the soil dries out. This drought-tolerant houseplant doesn't need a lot of water, so take care not to overwater it. Most of the time when sago palms die, it's because they're overwatered.
Sago palm doesn't require any pruning except to remove old leaves as they fade. Fertilize sago palm a couple of times a year in spring and summer to keep it growing its best.
Sago palm may be poisonous. Keep it out of reach of children and pets.
