I bought this Sago Palm today and would like some care instructions as it came with no tag.

Also, would it be best to place outside on hot Summer days and kept as a houseplant when the weather is colder?




Fairly resilient, needs a minimum temp. of 50 deg F in winter. Don't stand outside in hot sunshine when you do put it out - being indoors most of the year, it won't cope too well with full on, midday sun. Repot only when essential, they don't like root disturbance, don't allow to stand in water for longer than half an hour, water when the surface of the compost dries out slightly, less in winter, more in summer.
