We bought this Sago Palm for 9.99 at Costco several years ago and put it in a pot because the one we had in the ground the year before did not make it through the winter. Each year the Sago palm throws out a shoot from the center which is so green and soft and looks amazing. This year I captured this birth on digital to share with everyone. When I lived in California, it would not be unusual for you to come out of your home and find your sago palm dug up and gone. This is one plant that unlike the stock market today increases in value but just like 401k's you have to hang on for the long haul. We have been patient and loving to our sagos and think we could sell them for a pretty price if our economy continues to tank. Might be worth your while to look into it as an investment.
