A Sago Palm is salt tolerant. Some other salt tolerant palmsinclude cabbage palm, Canary Island palm, and the Chinese fan palm.
The most common reason for the fronds turning yellow is OVERWATERING. Once you stop overwatering them, the fronds will turn back to a deep green and they will be healthy.
Yes. Sago cycad seeds contain highly poisonous compounds. Consumption of cycad seeds has been implicated in the outbreak of Parkinson's Disease-like neurological disorder in v…arious locations in the Pacific such as Guam. Highly toxic cycasin and BMAA compounds are found in all parts of the plant, but are most concentrated in the seeds. These must be removed through extended processing before any part can be safely eaten. Consumption of any part of the plant can result in liver failure or neurologic disease in domestic animals.
a sago needs to be watered less than more because it likes dry better than wet
Humans are animals. Yes, they are dangerous. This is a toxic plant.
There are two different types of trees usually referred to as Sago Palm. One belongs to Cycas genus and is growing in many countries of South Asia. May be (and probably) it is… native to India, besides South Japan and many other locations. But ask me again later: I'll know for sure (new_jalsomino at yahoo.com). This Cycas is not really a palm, even though it looks like the last.. Another species is Metroxylon sagu, which is NOT native to India, but rather to Indonesia-Malaysia-Moluccas-Philippines region. Both trees can be used as food, but the former one is poisonous if not cooked properly. Beware. The later species is easier to cook and so it is a more famous source of Sago starch. It's a very good tree, because nobody needs to work hard for it's cultivation. God gave men of all countries many various sources of free food. It's a pity that so many foreigners today destroy native trees in their own and in other countries, and plant instead species which require hard work for their cultivation. Thus they also damage out planet's climate. Local flora must be preserved in each place - without making any barriers between local natural resources and local indigenous communities.
the hardiest species of cycad is tolerant down to about 10 degrees F or USDA hardiness zone 8a, eg. memphis, atlanta, richmond, seattle
well for one, the sago "palm" is not even realy a palm. its a cycade. but i know what you mean. but it seems like you are a little confused, a bonsai is not a type of tree, it… is a way of growing a tree. so those "bonsai palms" you see at the store are just sago palms grown to be a bonsai. but still the same type of plant as the other sago palms you see.
Yes, the bloom is highly toxic and will kill a dog if ingested.
about 4 inches tall
Sago palms do well when potted, as long as they are kept in their preferred conditions. They do not get very large, but their container still needs to be roomy enough.
