Now, I've never had a sago palm before, but I'm skeptical about some of this, just based on my experiences with one at work (big huge thing, very pricey, bad-tempered, was there almost as long as I was and then sold last winter or spring). So, how many of these are lies?
1) Wants minimal attention
2) Grows virtually anywhere with minimal care
3) Low light and high light
4) Never below 40F
5) Keep soil moist but do not let the plant stand in water or let the soil dry out
6) Fertilize every two months
I'm most skeptical of 2/3/5: when the light was low at work, the new fronds (leaves?) would come in long, weak, and pale, so I don't believe for a second that this is a low-light plant. No idea on temperature. I know if we gave the big plant at work water when it didn't want water, it would drop leaves, so keeping the soil constantly moist doesn't seem quite right to me either. But greenhouse care is different from home care, so I don't know. I'm sure some members of the audience have had these before, so -- what's wrong with these instructions? And what are the right instructions?
