Brown streaks on sago leaves usually indicate an infestation of scale insects. Check the undersides of the leaves for raised brown bumps. Any you find can be gently peeled away with your fingernail, killed if you dab them with a Q-Tip dipped in rubbing alcohol, or you can suffocate them by spraying with insecticidal soap. Repeat sprays may be necessary. Be sure to apply according to label directions.
