What do y'all think? Is this C. revoluta in need of a "minor"? Is a minor being blocked maybe?

RE: Mineral needs

I don't think it's nutritional--I think it's burning from excessive sun and heat. These cycads originate in subtropical islands (southern Japanese archipelago) where excessive heat just never occurs. I have seen this on my containerized ones in past years when I had them in midday, direct sun. This year, I have them in locations shaded from the hottest sun and they have never looked better or grown faster!
