Ask a Question forum: My Sago Palm has me stumped!

I moved into this house, complete with a lovely Sago Palm almost 5 years ago. Suddenly this beautiful guy has sprouted these HUGE pods of some sort!! I do believe my tree is actually more like 3-4 trees. I really don't know what to do with this! I'm thinking I need to cut the leaves back but I really don't know what to do with these "pods" (I call them that because I don't know what they are). Should I remove them? If so, when and how? Help!!

Thanks in advance!

No worries there, those are its blooms. Just watch and wait, see what happens.

They look very healthy and beautiful.

You have a girl sago producing flowers then seeds! The seeds are pretty red and heart-shaped. They are poisonous to pets, btw. Welcome! Welcome!

If there's a male Sago near by, you may have baby Sagos (if you plant the seeds, that is). Smiling
