You can prune away the brown fronds now. As we said before, water stress can cause the newly emerging fronds to stop growing. A lack of nutrients can also cause the problem, as well as browned areas along the fronds. About the only other thing that might cause brown streaks is sunscald. If the plant is receiving more sunshine than it has in the past, this might explain why the fronds are developing problems. Try feeding with a palm fertilizer and watering once or twice a week during the growing season. Best wishes with your sago!
