Mini Sago palm, sweet at the corner


I know the word “sago,” its tree could reach 50 feet (15 m) in height after 15 years old.


The species of Metroxylon sagu produces starch called as “sago” or “sagu” starch.


Other two species of palm trees produce sago starch are:

- Arenga spp.

- Maurilia spp


One sago tree could produce 90 to 180 kg starch. The starch is used generally as:

- foodstuffs such as noodle

- textile sizing

- adhesives


The trees are found in freshwater swamp areas of South East Asia and Papua New Guinea. 


Fruit from mini sago palm


Here in America, we have another type of sago, mini sago palm with scientific name Cycas revoluta.


The plant native to Asian regions, include southern Japan. Since its small size, it is popular as one of ornamental plants.


We have grown the sago in the corner of our house, some people do grow its as an indoor plant.


Several advantages of sago plants:

- easy to take care

- grow well outside and indoors

- free of pests

- available in most nurseries.

- may be grown in pot


Mini sago plants grow slowly, and they reaches about 15 feet (5 m) tall after several years. This is another reason why people chose sago plant to put in their garden.

  1. When I lived in South Georgia, many people were pulling their sagos out since the fruit, which looks like a dog toy, is quite poisonous for dogs, or at least that was what I was told. We didn't have any at our house, but there were folks downtown the street with them. I never knew they were used for starch.

  6. Thanks for the info. Years ago when we visited Florida I brought home a palm seed. We ended up transplanting it several times as it grew very tall. We had it a long time and then one summer it just dried up. I don't think it was a Sago Palm. I'll have to look for one at the nursery.

  7. I love planting! Thank you for sharing about your little sago. I'll try my best to have my own small garden where I plant my favorite flowers and plants.
    Have a happy day!
