Is it a Sago palm ? I have one too. the pot.
Is it in your yard Kaustubh? New for you?

Did you know that Sago palm is not a palm? It is Cycad which is not related to palms.

Glad you agree Delonix as I know that you are an expert on palms.
The one in Kaustubh picture is a beauty.

Yes, there's several sago palms which look like this one posted here in San Diego. It's very common.

Yup Klahanie this is in my front garden. I sort of knew this wasn't a regular palm as it was labeled something different when i'd bought it (back then it was like 3 leaves) but didnt know it was a cycad.

Delonix, as always you are amazing.

Thanks! :>)

We know cycads here in San Diego. The San Diego Zoo has the second largest collections of cycads in North America.

Here's a few photos of some of the large cycads here in San Diego, CA.
