|Hello, this is another plant I took out of ground that was being repurposed and potted a year ago.
Leaf edges yellow because pot too small?
What is name? Can't find name online. Thanks.

|It is called Sago Palm and is a type of Cycad. There are many possible causes of the leaf browning although the small pot is not likely unless you are not watering very often. I assume you keep it indoors in winter.

|That is a cycad, not a Palm.
They are very prone to insect damage. Most note ably brown armored scale, Boisduval scale, mealybugs and false spider mites.

|I agree, not a true palm, it just has the common name of Sago Palm (Cycas revoluta) or another type of Cycas, there are many: https://garden.org/plants/sear...
I can't offer advice because I've never been able to keep one alive in a container for long.
