This week we’re taking it back to the Jurassic era to introduce you to the stunning Sago Palm.

Native to warm parts of Japan and southern China these slow-growing houseplants are adored for their feather-like foliage that grows in a symmetrical ring. Great for new plant parents, this easy-to-care-for tropical makes for an interesting addition to any room!

While its name may imply that it is a palm, this plant is actually considered a cycad, one of the oldest groups of plants dating back to prehistoric times — hence the plant’s hardiness.

Maintenance & Care for Sago Palms: 

Light: Bright, indirect light. They will tolerate low light conditions

Water: Allow soil to dry between watering. Ensure adequate drainage. Do not let roots sit in water. 

Temperature & Humidity: They enjoy humidity which can be created by misting them regularly or placing the plant on a pebble tray. Bring indoors during Winter months.Protect from temperatures <10°C/50°F.

Fertilizer: Water-soluble 20-20-20 monthly. 

Maintenance: Heat and drought tolerant.

Leaf damage may be indicative of extreme heat or cold exposure. If in doubt, shade & protect.

Growth: 3-10′ tall / 3-6′ wide 

Toxicity: All parts of the Sago palm are toxic to humans and animals
