Sago Palm growing

Mirch86(6)November 5, 2012

I have a Sago Palm that has not been showing any signs of activity all summer long. I kept inside on a window sill that get morning and afternoon sun, and also i had a screen on the bottom part of the window, so I guess it got plenty of fresh air. For the past couple of days, the leaves have started to lower themselves and got a greenish-yellowish hew. Does this mean it's preparing to sprout new fronds? Or is something wrong with it?

Means those fronds are dying. Keep an eye on your watering, either too much or too little.

It could be getting ready to jettison those fronds for a new flush, but over wet conditions is also a possibility. Had that happen with mine (in the ground) where part of the year it gets too much seepage. The old fronds all slowly yellowed but were replaced with a new flush. It would be far better off if I moved it to a better drained site with less risk of it rotting.
