Sago palms are native to warm parts of Japan, and in cooler climates they're often grown as houseplants. They're best planted in the early spring or late fall. These plants are extremely slow-growing and often put out only one new frond each year, with the feather-like foliage growing in a symmetrical ring. They generally grow larger when planted in the ground versus when they're in containers.
Bright, indirect light. Avoid placing them in direct sunlight, especially hot afternoon sun in the summertime.
Water when top inch of soil is dry, add water slowly.
Easy care. Fertilize every 6 month. Slow growers.
Very toxic to pets.
*If you suspect your pet may have ingested a potentially toxic substance, call the APCC at (888) 426-4435 or contact your local veterinarian as soon as possible.
