Default dioon edule spotting kept indoors

I know this is probably not an indoor palm but I have one given to me by a friend. It is now spotting and I do not know what to do. Any help or information would be grateful. I do not know much of anything about cycads or palms....

Can I keep the dioon edule indoors?

What can I do to help it? I live in Portland.

Default Just put it near the window and see what happens

You are probably only getting about 8 to 10 hours of good sunlight this time of year so try to give it as much as possible. You can pretty much grow anything indoors though. Try using grow lamp or bulb to make sure it gets enough sun..

I use a lamp on all my palm trees that are kept indoors. I actually have a full sun palm growing perfect indoors. A couple of lights replaced with grow lights and you should be ok. Also a ornamental fertilizer will help.

Post Cycads Definition Information about Cycads

Heres what I found
Cycads Leaves grow directly from the trunk, and typically fall when older, leaving a crown of leaves at the top. The leaves grow in a rosette form, with new foliage emerging from the top and center of the crown. The trunk may be buried, so the leaves appear to be emerging from the ground, so the plant appears to be a basal rosette. The leaves are generally large in proportion to the trunk size, and sometimes even larger than the trunk.

The leaves are pinnate (in the form of bird feathers, pinnae), with a central leaf stalk from which parallel "ribs" emerge from each side of the stalk, perpendicular to it. The leaves are typically either compound (the leaf stalk has leaflets emerging from it as "ribs"), or have edges (margins) so deeply cut (incised) so as to appear compound. Some species have leaves that are bipinnate, which means the leaflets each have their own subleaflets, growing in the same form on the leaflet as the leaflets grow on the stalk of the leaf (self-similar geometry).

With that being said these are die hard plants from the jurassic era I love the name cycad looks like I don't even need a green thumb for this one
