Rooting sago palm pups
I sent an email to one of the best cycad experts in the country, bemoaning my failures, and since he has a greenhouse, I asked if it necessary. He said no. And he's doing it just a few miles away from me, in the Phoenix, Arizona area, so it isn't a climate thing.
I just went out into the courtyard and did an inspection of one of the pups that has been there for about two years. I don't see any roots, do you? That's just a piece of string there, by the way.
So, I pushed it back in and will leave it alone. Time will pass, and maybe I'll live long enough to see this become a plant!
Water once a week, if in the Phoenix area, where it's hot in summer! Otherwise, monthly.
