Scientific Name: Cycas revoluta

Common Names: King Sago Palm, Cycad

Overview: The King Sago Palm is actually a cycad, a palm-like plant with legendary ancestry in the plant kingdom – right back to the age of the dinosaurs. Native to Southern Japan, Cycas Revoluta is a stunning ornamental that resembles a cross between a small palm and a big fern.

This easy-care beauty has glossy, feather-looking leaves which sprout in a loose rosette around a woody trunk. It can grow to 3 feet long, but is slow growing. Its trunk forms gradually over time. It can take 20-50 years for the tree to reach its full height. Relatively low maintenance, the King Sago has average watering needs during its growing season between April and October. Water sparingly at other times. Fond of humidity, the plant is vulnerable to cold and frost, so remember to bring indoors if you live in cooler climates. They prefer well-drained soil, and should be kept out of prolonged direct sunlight.

  • This item ships in a grower pot.

Description

Elegant Form and Tropical Texture in a Simple

Cycas Revoluta is a very popular houseplant for all those who are only beginning their journey to keep plants at home. The plant has feathery foliage, which makes it an exciting addition to the space. King Sago Palm does have the name palm in it, but it is not really a palm tree and is known as a cycad. This plant is known for producing nuts, but you won’t find any fruits or flowers. These plants are very commonly found in Southern China and the warmer areas of Japan. 

You can still grow the plant if you live in a cooler climate, but you will have to grow it indoors. The feathery foliage of the plant grows in a ring which makes it very mesmerizing. Use this guide to grow the plant to its full potential. 

Caring for your Sago Palm 

With the right care, any plant will flourish, and this Cycad requires a bright and warmer environment and likes humidity usually found in warmer climates. Let’s take a deeper look at all the care requirements, so your plant grows well. 

Light

This plant enjoys bright and indirect light. It would be best if you did not keep them directly under sunlight as that will be too harsh for them. If the plant receives direct sunlight, it is likely to burn its foliage. 

However, when you keep the plant indoors, it is best to find a space near a south-facing window to get maximum indirect sunlight. If you do not have enough sunlight inside your home, you can keep it outdoors under some shade, which would work fine. 

Soil

The Sago Palm can do well with many different types of soil. All you need to do is ensure that the soil of your choice has good drainage. The ideal soil for King Sago Palm is sandy as it is slightly acidic and still has a higher organic matter content.  

Water

The trunk and leaves of the plant are fleshy and store water. Therefore, you don’t have to water it frequently, and it can easily thrive in drought conditions. But for optimal growth, you need to ensure that there is moderate moisture. However, the soil should never be soggy, or that could cause significant damage to the plant. 

 You can reduce the frequency of watering the plant during the winter as the plant is not actively growing then. 

Fertilizer

During the growth season, it is a good idea to fertilize on a monthly basis. You can use a liquid fertilizer or a slow-release fertilizer so that you can get good growth during the season. If you have planted the Sago palm in clay, then you can reduce the amount of fertilizer by half. 

Common Issues

As a houseplant owner, you need to know all the problems that may emerge if you don’t take good care of the plant. 

Pests

Sago Palms are not very susceptible to pests, but there are some pests that can pose some problems. For instance, you must look out for Spider Mites and Scale. These pests can cause your plant to lose its color and cause other significant damage. 

If you want to get rid of these plants, you can use insecticidal soap and clean off all the pests and try to give them plenty of airflow. 

Disease

It may be easy to maintain this plant, but you need to prevent any diseases from damaging them. Some of the diseases include: 

Black Spots 

Black spots are visible if your plant has gone through an insect strike. These spots look like dirt but are sooty mold. You can wash off the leaves to get rid of these spots. 

Wilting Leaves 

The leaves of King Sago Palm wilt when it suffers from a fungal infection. That can be caused by water logging or if your soil is not well draining. 

Pruning 

You can prune your King Sago Palm if the leaves have gone brown. If the leaves are yellow, you can leave them as is. These plants can restore back to health. To remove the fronts, you can cut them close to the trunk and use sterilized shears. 

Propagation

To propagate the plant, you can use its seeds and the division of the plant. While seeds will take longer, the division method is a lot simpler when it comes to propagation. You must transplant the pups at the right time, which can be late into fall or early spring. 

Potting/Repotting

These plants do not have fast growth, and that means that you will not have to repot them many times. It may need repotting once in three years, and so on. You can repot it during springtime and get fresh soil for the repotting.

    I ordered an Extra Large Cycas Revoluta aka Sago Palm from PlantVine which arrived two days ago. I am thoroughly impressed by both the quality of the plant and the care they took to ship it. The plant was both wrapped and had bamboo sticks to keep the plant in place on the box. When the box was opened the plant was very healthy, full and not a branch out of place.

    My Sago Palm is definitely sizeable, 27″ tall and 33″ wide. Exposed trunk is 7″ wide and high. Very healthy. Perfect shape. I can hardly wait to transplant into the ground in a week as instructed.

    I would definitely buy from PlantVine again and would highly recommend them for their care in packing, shipping and choice of beautiful plants.

Why others chose the King Sago Palm

As a challenge to myself...I lost one to scale.

Superb varietal. Long time satisfied customer of PLANT VINE.

I have loved Sago palms for years. A local greenhouse had a huge specimen (probably 7’ in diameter) that I used to “visit” every time I went there. It was for sale - $350.00 in 2001! I couldn’t afford it but always yearned for a miracle that would let me have one just like it. Over the years I have purchased several small inexpensive sages; however, being a slow grower, I soon realized I would never be able to grow my own. 17 years later, I can now afford to buy that beauty but sadly the greenhouses closed its doors a couple of years ago. Enter plantvine. I was searching for a rat tail cactus and purchased it. It arrived very quickly, in perfect condition and is thriving. I decided to check out Sago palms from Plantvine. To my delight I found a 7 gallon beauty for about $165.00! Then they gave me an additional 10% off PLUS FREE SHIPPING! I can’t wait for my long awaited giant Sago to arrive. I am now a loyal Plantvine customer for life. Great value, quality, speedy shipping and large variety.
