Did a bit of research, Cycas revoluta has "coralloid" roots, which are nitrogen fixing nodules. That would be a good thing. Compare with this picture:

Be careful not to water immediately after you put the plant back in a pot. Give it a few days to heal from whatever root injury it may have experienced while being handled. Maybe a week if it's not too hot and dry.

No, just Sego Palm roots.

Those look like nice healthy roots. Your Sego should be fine... with time.

I have planted a lot of Segos with NO roots and NO leaves. Most of them grow. The one I rescued from my father-in-laws compost pile (he thought it was dead so decided to compost it) now has a trunk 3 feet tall.

The danger with Sego Palms is overwatering. Let them dry between waterings. Don't bury any part of the trunk. If it won't stand up alone, puts some stakes around it to hold it in place. Be patient - it might be next spring or summer before you see signs of life.

My DH's grandfather was a Japanese nurseryman in Berkeley, CA. He brought Sego palms to California (from Japan) in about 1910. He brought them with no leaves and no roots, just a trunk. Most were about 6 - 8 inches long. They are growing all over the San Francisco Bay area now.
