Sago Palm Sprouts - Knowledgebase Question

Walnut, CA
Question by ERTRA

We have several Sago Palms. They appear to be very healthy. They all have several sprouts coming up around the base of the plant. Is there a way to start new plants from the sprouts without damaging the original plant?

The new little offsets will eventually develop small root systems of their own and can then be carefully removed from the parent plant and potted up. Once you recognize roots growing from the offsets, gently grasp near the basal portion and twist them away from the parent. Pot each up in regular potting soil and water regularly. New leaf growth will indicate the new plants have rooted successfully.
