Fleming Island, Fl
|We have three sego palms that did not produce new fronds the past growing season. One produced only small sprouts another showed signs of forming fronds, and the third produced growths that became pygmy fronds that did not develop fully. These growths are still on the plant. What steps should be taken to rejuvinate the sagos in order for them to produce healthy fronds this year.

|When new fronds turn brown before they develop fully it can indicate your plant is water stressed or lacking in nutrients. Try feeding your sago with a specially formulated palm food fertilizer. Be careful with watering - root rot can develop if the soil remains too wet for extended periods of time. Best wishes with your palms.
