The Sago Palm is an easy to care for house plant that is recognizable for its unique feathery green foliage growing on trunks. While the common name might suggest that this plant is a palm, it is technically not considered a true palm at all, but instead considered a cycad. Cycads are one of the oldest groups of plants, dating back to prehistoric times, which accounts for the hardiness of this plant. Although the Sago Palm is hardy and easy to grow, it does require some specific growing conditions. This plant prefers a warm environment, high humidity and bright light for best growth.
