One of the most unique, interesting and beautiful houseplants on offer is the Japanese Sago Palm.

Almost prehistoric, this palm-like plant is incredibly slow-growing and structural, perfect if you want to elegantly fill a bright spot at home without much fuss.

The leaves are tough, almost spine-like, and the trunk is woody but covered in thin, brown hairs creating a unique texture below the green rosette of foliage.

_ Unfussy, easy care
_ Toxic when ingested

When Dinosaurs walked the earth

Belonging to the ancient plant family - Cycadaceae, it is a plant with some serious history. Versions of the cycad family were around when dinosaurs walked the earth, over 250 million years ago!

Convergent Evolution

Despite being nicknamed as a palm and its very palm-like appearance, it isn't actually a palm, but a cycad. This can be put down to a phenomenon called convergent evolution, the independent evolution of similar features in unrelated species.

Sloooow growing

A very, very, very slow-growing plant, the Sago Palm can reach up to 6-7m tall. However, it may take more than a lifetime to get to those heights. Current records estimate that the tallest specimens have taken between 50-100 years to reach maturity.

Care tips


Light | Growing everywhere from dense jungles to open plains, this plant can tolerate a range of conditions. However, for the healthiest plant, grow in lots of bright light with access to an hour or two of passing direct sunlight. 

Water | For best growth, watering should still be regular, provided the majority of the soil has dried out in between. 

Temperature | Although relatively unfussy with temperatures, the Sago Palm will not enjoy sneaky draughts or highly changeable climates. For the healthiest plant, keep temperatures between 15-35°C.
