Weeds In A Sago Palm
Posted By: angkymac, 02-16-2024, 03:16 PM

I was scanning through the potted plants around the clubhouse and found that the grounds-keeper needs to be replaced!
Sago palms were huge, and we ate the starch from their trunks where I once lived.
These are just the small landscape trees in pots but they still have all the typical features of our old palm trees.
Well, except for the weeds--which seemed to be there just for the purpose of enhancing the photo!

Indeed. Even worse, in some incidents the baddies shot and killed the cycad guardians! Outrageous!

(actually, I have a seriously overgrown cycad in the front yard, apparently not of interest to the thieves, because nobody has dug it up in the middle of the night, but it's a very common landscape cycad here...sometimes i wish somebody would actually dig it up and relieve me of the monster... )

Well, if I lived on the other corner of the continent, where you live, maybe I would "help you out" and come over to chop it open to make "pepeda" (sago starch pudding) out of it!

But then, if they are able to return from their below-ground pieces, it just might pop right up again!

Thanks, but not this one...Zamia furfuracea ("cardboard cycad"). All parts of it are poisonous.

i dunno about it sprouting from underground. Possible. I do know that you can cut/prune it down to a stump and it will grow right back. Former boss had several in his garden and his groundskeepers regularly did that to keep the plants more or less contained. It's attractive when smallish, but it will eventually take over your yard if you let it

Fascinating!
I guess I'll always find such info fascinating when it comes to trees.

Oh, plants in general too.
Only there are soooooo many of them that I have to limit myself.
Trees, if only because I used to call myself a forester.
