Default SAGO INFO....For everyone.

Since I have Seen many people ask about the sago palm. I figured I would help and do some research to add. I will put the tops that the article states rather then putting the whole article because it is long and i was advise not to by the Admin. Soo here are the topics if they apply to you then click away.

Care and Culture of Cycas revoluta:
NEW LEAVES
TEMPERATURE RANGE
HUMIDITY
LIGHT:
RATE OF GROWTH:
LONGEVITY:
SOIL:
WATER AND FERTILIZER:
INSECTS:
LETHAL CYCAD SCALE IN FLORIDA!
REPOTTING
PLANTING IN THE LANDSCAPE OR GARDEN:
TRANSPLANTING or MOVING
Variegated Cycas Revoluta:


Thats just one Reference Page. Which is the best over all I will add more.


How to grow them from seed.


And here is a link to a place for Books about cycads.

Cycad Book Shop

Cycas revoluta from WIKIPEDIA


I hope this helps everyone. If I find More i will post another thread.

Default I never knew there was so much info on cycads

I have a sago in the front yard and i never knew what they were until a couple of years ago. They don't grow fast thats for sure.
Thanks for the helpful links. I never really had a problem with my sago but when i started to read about them i soon found out that i did have some problems with it. I just never fixed it and it got better on its own.

Default the reason they are so expensive is because the time it takes to grow them

Its a very slow growing palm
