House Plant - Sago Palm Yellowing

riley11riley11 Posts: 1

Hello! I am new to this forum. I have come here because I have a sago palm that is having problems and I'm not sure why. I've had it for probably 9 months and I haven't had any problems. It is a house plant and lives in a pot. Recently, it has had some yellowing and drooping of it's leaves. I thought maybe it was a sunlight problem, or even a water problem, but nothing seems to be helping it. The only thing I could think of is that it possibly needs a bigger pot? The only problem is, I have ideas, but I have no clue which it is! I am also including pictures, so if any one has any insight as to what is wrong with the plant, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!  imageimage

    I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT HOUSE PLANTS SO THIS IS JUST SOMETHING FOR YOU TO THINK ABOUT:

    HAVE YOU BEEN FEEDING IT WITH PLANT FOOD?

    HAVE YOU TAKEN IT OUT OF ITS POT AND HAD A GOOD LOOK AT THE ROOTS TO SEE IF THEY HAVE ROTTED?

    COULD IT HAVE BEEN CHILLED AGAINST A COLD WINDOW OVERNIGHT?

    SORRY, THAT'S MY OFFERING.image

    We grow these outdoors here in The States.   I honestly didn't know you could grow them indoors.  Mine out in my side garden lost all but 3 of its leaves in our two very severe freezes this past winter and I was certain it was dying off.  It was planted already when we bought this home 2 years ago, so I don't know how old it is, but the trunk s about 8" tall. 

    Well, much to my surprise, just today up popped a cluster of 3 new leaves/fronds and another side cluster of around 6-7 new fronds.  I'm learning to never write off a plant as a goner until the Fat Lady Sings.  :)  You might try planting it out in the ground and see if it snaps back.  This is the perfect time of year to do so I would think.
