Sago Palm, aka Cycas revoluta, is one of the oldest houseplant varieties, dating back to prehistoric times. With sharp, dark green, leathery leaves, the fronds sit atop a swollen stem, that almost looks like a scaled bulb. Despite its common name, it is not actually a Palm at all, but it is definitely one of the easier houseplants out there.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

Sago palms are extremely slow-growing and often put out only one new frond each year. It can easily take a sago palm five or six years to achieve its full pot size of 2 feet. Also, they are poisonous, so keep them out of reach of inquisitive children and pets.

Care Guide

How to take care of Sago Palm

They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.

They will thrive in bright light, but also can tolerate medium light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. They can be placed anywhere between the middle of the room and the window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They like the soil to be relatively dry before the next watering. That usually takes about 2 weeks in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but for them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. droopy, floppy, or soft leaves). Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.

This plant is extremely toxic to pets and should not be kept around any animals that have a tendency to eat houseplants as it will lead to severe reactions.

Introducing the Sago Palm, a living testament to the ancient beauty and resilience that comes with time.

The Sago Palm, also known as Cycas revoluta, hails from the Cycadaceae family, a lineage that predates the dinosaurs. It’s like having a small piece of prehistory right in your home. Its sturdy trunk and feathery fronds evoke an aesthetic that's both tropical and prehistoric. Just like this plant has stood the test of time, it inspires us to remain resilient amidst life's trials.

Preferring bright light but with a tolerance for a variety of lighting conditions, the Sago Palm reminds us to find joy in any situation we're placed in. However, remember that, like us, it also appreciates the occasional 'sunbath.'

When it comes to water, less is more. Allow the soil to dry out between watering, echoing the arid conditions it's adapted to survive in. It's a reminder that adversity can shape us into something beautiful and strong.

As your Sago Palm matures, its cycad-like structure becomes more prominent, developing more fronds and potentially even cone-like structures if it's a male plant. Just like the Sago Palm, we are all works in progress, constantly evolving and growing with time.

Invite the Sago Palm into your home. It's not just a plant; it's a symbol of ancient resilience and adaptability. Let its journey inspire resilience and flexibility in your life, reminding you that you're capable of withstanding time's tests, just like this ancient beauty.
