Answer: You may have removed the sago sprouts a bit prematurely. Generally they take their nourishment from the parent plant while they are developing and producing roots of their own. When they're ready to make it on their own, the roots are visible and they will almost completely separate themselves from the parent plant. In fact, they'll either fall off on their own or you can remove them with a gentle tug. Since you've already cut the little palms away from the parent, you can try to coax them to root by planting them in moistened sand or potting soil. Bury the bottom 1/3 of the plant in the moistened potting soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy wet and place them in a protected site (out of direct sunshine). If they're mature enough, they'll produce roots. Best wishes with your new little palms!
