I have 2 sago palms (medium sized) that I planted about 2 mos. ago, and they are turning yellow. I water 2x a week, it is very sunny and hot here, what might be causing this, what can I do about it?

An iron deficiency is what causes yellowing fronds on a sago palm. It is most apparent in the summer months but can happen at any time. Iron Sulfate (Ironite is one brand) will help them green up again. Apply in amounts as recommended on the package. It will take 30-90 days before you see changes in your sago palms.
