Sago Palm in Ceramic

Cycas revoluta

[ Height: 15" - 16" | Diameter: 5" - 6" ]
The Sago Palm is not really a palm at all. It is a cycad, a type of plant that has existed on Earth since prehistoric times. Extremely slow-growing, the new leaves on the Sago Palm will emerge in a ring around the center only once every year or two. As the new growth unfurls and stiffens, the color transforms from gold-brown to blue-green. Requiring little care, the Sago Palm is a rugged houseplant perfect for people on the go. Here, a Sago Palm is presented in a modern, white cylinder container. Plant delivery in Manhattan with Plantshed.com.

Plant Care Guide

Light

Requires bright, indirect sunlight. A few hours of direct light is okay—but too much in the summer will sunburn the leaves.

water-plant-guide-iconwater-plant-guide-iconwater-plant-guide-icon

Water

Check for about once every 2-3 weeks. Allow soil to completely dry out. Water less often in winter. Pre-measure amount of water to ensure excess does not build up in bottom of container. About a cup of water should be enough.

Level of Care

Easy! Just make sure it has enough sunlight and that you don’t overwater.

air-purifying-1

Air Purifying

Sago Palms remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.

fertilizer-plant-guide-icon

Fertilizer

Feed with a liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.

high-temp-plant-guide-icon

Temperature

Remarkably cold tolerant. Can withstand temperatures down to 15°F for short periods but prefers an average of 60-80°F.

soil-plant-guide-icon

Soil

Use a well-draining, sandy soil. Cactus/Succulent Potting Mix works best, or a ½ perlite, ½ peat moss mixture. The plant will rot without proper drainage. Be sure not to plant too deeply!

Pruning & Propagation
