You can keep your King Sago patio palm in a container for many, many years. Their rate of growth is extremely slow. The fastest rate observed is three new sets of leaves and an increase of 1" of height and trunk diameter per year. When grown as potted indoor specimens, Cycads may add only one set of new leaves every year or two and remain somewhat the same size for years. Enjoy your new plant!
