Default How Do You Prune A Sago Palm?

I just bought a Sago Palm about 2 months ago, and wasn't sure about it as the leaves were a little dry on edges, but got it anyway, and was surprised when about 3 weeks later, shoots of new fronds started coming out of the middle....

They are about a foot longer than the original leaves at the bottom and tend to curl on the ends... I was wondering if these are supposed to be cut off? The ends that is....will they likely straighten out?

The original fronds on the bottom was more of a straighter angle, I have never had one of these and wanted to get one, but not sure how to keep the fronds looking good....

thanks for any advice...

Default Sago Palm Trimming

Yes the new fronds should be left on the sago. You do not want to cut them. The old dying ones are the ones you should cut. The curling of the Sago Palms will straighten out and they will turn evergreen in color. Make sure to fertilize. This is when the sago palm needs a good fertilizing.
