Cycas revoluta, commonly known as the Sago palm, is a fascinating plant that often gets mistaken for a true palm but belongs to the cycad family. Native to Japan, this slow-growing and long-lived plant has gained popularity as an ornamental plant in gardens and indoor spaces.
Water: Allow the top 5 cm of the soil to dry out before watering. Overwatering can be detrimental to the plant, so it's crucial to let the soil dry between waterings.
Sun: Cycas can tolerate partial shade to full sun. However, they often thrive best in areas with dappled sunlight or where they receive morning sun and are shaded from intense afternoon sunlight.
Soil: These plants refer well-draining soil. Use a mix that allows water to pass through easily, preventing waterlogged conditions that can lead to root rot.
