I bought a Sago Palm about a month ago from Home Depot of course. I planted it in a large plastic container using potting soil, compost and worm castings. It gets sun from about noon until 4:00. I also water it a little every other day. Can you tell me if I'm doing something wrong.
Thanks in advance,

You are overwatering your sago and it is showing its stress by developing yellowing leaves. Water it thoroughly and then allow the top inch of soil to dry out before watering again. If you keep the roots too moist, the leaves will turn yellow. Best wishes with your sago!
