Sagopalm - Knowledgebase Question

Scottsdale, Ar
Question by ejankjos

I planted a sagopalm last year in a pot on my patio.
It gets hardly any sun at all.
I water it about once a week.
The new leaves from this year look perfect, but why are the old leaves so brownish on the end of their leaves. Not yellow.

Brownish tips on sago palm leaves usually indicate overwatering - or fertilizer burn. Watering thoroughly once each week is probably fine for your sago. If you are feeding, use a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer so you won't burn the roots. Aside from the above, there's really no reason for the tips of the fronds to turn brown. Wish I could offer more suggestions!
