i brought my Sago Palm inside last fall.
The leaves have started to bleach out( die) from inside out ( starting from the bulb toward the tips).
The plant is getting couple of hours of indirect sun every day.
how do I keep it from dieing?

If the lower leaves are exhibiting this behavior it's perfectly normal. The oldest, lowest fronds eventually die out and you can cut them off the plant. If the newest leaves are looking bad, sunburn (which can take months to begin to show) is probably the cause. Aside from sunburn, it could be that the leaves are exhibiting the effects of stress - overwatering, temperatures that are too cold or too warm, etc. Without seeing the plant it's really difficult to diagnose!
