It's a pretty palm, Varda, wish you luck with it!! Thanks so very much Varda!!
Man, do I ever know that for sure. I live in a rather old neighborhood, and some of the homes here have older people (older than me, even!), and they aren't able to take care of their property but refuse to leave, and so a few of the places are not looking so well. I feel for them, but like you, I think that they shoud have to maintain their place.
Yes, Tex - - I saved a planter full of amaryllis, some small succulents, and two pots of hibiscus that are still in recovery mode. Much of the landscaping on the vacant property is dead or dying, including an orange tree that I try to squirt some water on through the fence now and then, but it is probably a lost cause. There ought to be a law that banks should maintain their real estate obtained through foreclosure; derelict properties are not good for a neighborhood.
Cool plant, had them in Ca and FL but cannot grow them in SC.
Wow! Like the others you rescued (wasn't one an Amaryllis?), they love your kindness and green thumb. This one looks really healthy. Thanks for posting.
I really don't know anything about sago palms - - this one belonged to my neighbor, who left it behind when foreclosure forced him to move. This palm was in a very small pot, and had not had very good care, as you can tell from the yellowed tips of the old fronds. I put it in a larger pot, and it seems to be responding to a little TLC. Since transplanting did not seem to bother it, I would guess that it should be easy to transplant any baby palms that sprout.
I love Sago palms! Any suggestions as to how to transplant the young plants that grow beneath the parent plant?
