Sago - any experience with deep cutting sago palm

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

 

do you have any experience with sago deep cutting? 

I have 2 sagos. 2021 Texas freeze damage. I was checking the tops weekly and they were firm until today.

Today the top came came off. I cut the tops about 6 inches deep and sagos' cores are rotten. 

But there is firm and live tissue around the cores.

Do you have any experience with sago cutting? I couldn't find anything online.

 

Thanks in advance,

S

Keep cutting until the center is firm and doesn't stink like rot. 

Keep that cut end dry.  So put an empty black plastic pot over it if there's going to be rain.  You can dust the cut end with sulfur powder or Daconil powder.  Good luck!

You can expect your Cycas revoluta to produce many new offshoots, but it's very unlikely that there will be any new growth on the main trunk.

Thank you!

Yes! As I am thinking about it, this is the unfortunate reality! Pretty sad because my sagos were beauties! Oh well, another learning experience with exotic gardening.
