|Yellowing leaves can indicate a need for fertilizer but they might also be a sign of insect problems. Closely examine the undersides of the leaves for scale or mealybug insects. Their feeding can cause the uppersides of the leaves to turn yellow. If you find the pests you can try applying a neem oil based insecticide. Use according to label directions so you won't harm the leaves. Good luck with your sago!
