Mature Sago palms, or Cycas, produce offsets that can be detached from the parent and planted to become new palms. Offsets which are complete with their own root systems should break easily away from the parent. Gently grab it at the base where it attaches to the parent and pull down and out. Then pot it up in a container filled with moistened potting soil. Keep the soil moist but not soggy, and keep the new plants out of direct sunlight for a week or two. Offsets with roots will begin to grow right away. Immature offsets, those without their own root systems, should develop roots within a few weeks of being separated from the parent. You can separate offsets now or wait until spring. Best wishes with your sagos!
