Cycad, We Have A Problem


I cut this Sago Palm back in spring and put it in a hot sunny place until it flushed out and looked very dapper. Then I moved it to a less sunny area. Oops. My bad.


I’m going to give him one heckuva bath this weekend using my favorite fighter-of-mealybug, Dr. Bronner’s Soap (in lavender). I’ll let you know how that works in Le Forum.

p.s. I have to highly recomment the Facebook page of Bastard the Cycad…. He’s on Twitter too!
