Just say'in #2
Use to see on older sago's in the past, suckers not only sprouting from the base of the trunk but also about half way up out of the trunk itself, proud to say we've joined the big boys, ours are too!!! lol
From the post about SP not producing multitudes of seeds from time to time, our serenoa is the same way, seeds galore one year but the year after or so.......next pic
Just a few & thats it!!
On the other hand, our windmills are prolific producers.
It's been cool enough to sit out on the pier the last couple of days between rain showers.
