Sago Palm Bonsai Tree - With Pup (Cycas revoluta)
What Determines Value in Bonsai?
There are primarily 3 things which contribute to a bonsai tree's value:
Of course, you would expect a decades-old bonsai to cost more than a young plant.
Naturally, a 4 foot tall tree will be more expensive than a 6 inch tree. Older, larger specimens will also usually be more visually striking than young plants. Someone will have devoted a great deal of time and effort toward making them so.
These are general rules. Now, lets talk specifically about the Sago palm bonsai on this page.
I have placed the photographs on the page in order of price. Most to least expensive. I think you can easily see why the bonsai at the top of the page is more expensive than the other 2.
Yes, it is larger. But, to me, its true value is in its beauty.
I love the form of the larger palm. The pineapple shape of the trunk and the way the fronds fan out atop it evokes memories of our tropical Maui vacation.
The pup situated beside the "mother" plant adds charm to the display.
Here in Florida, I see Sago palm trees growing outdoors, in the ground, all the time. (Click the link to see some pictures.) They are rarely as perfectly shaped or groomed as this one.
Sago Palm Bonsai Tree - Double Planting (Cycas revoluta)
This planting also features a "mother and child" which I like because that is the way Cycas revoluta trees grow. If you look at the Sago palm pictures on this site, you will often see that there are pups at the bases of these prehistoric plants.
Sago Palm Bonsai Care
Place the tree where it can enjoy bright light and good air movement. Remember, there is really no such thing as an indoor plant.
Whenever you bring a plant inside, you will need to make certain accommodations to its needs.
This palm will make a marvelous indoor bonsai tree if you house it near a window that opens or in a room with a fan.
It does not need to be in a wind tunnel. A gentle breeze flowing through its stiff fronds will suffice.
Water it as if it were a cactus. Moisten the soil and then let it dry almost completely before you give it more water. Feed your Japanese King Sago bonsai just once or twice a year for best performance.
Exotic Sago Bonsai (Cycas revoluta)
This is the simplest indoor bonsai plant for sale on this page. As you would expect, it is also the cheapest. This does not make it any less desirable than the other 2, just smaller and simpler.
It is still a very elegant indoor bonsai plant which would look great on a desk or side table.
As a collector, you should always buy the plant that you like best. The 1 that "speaks" to you or "grabs" you, if you will.
Think about the space where you plan to display your new treasure. Which plant will best compliment that area of your home or office?
These are all important considerations.
Also, keep in mind that Sago palms are slow growers. It would probably be best to buy the size you ultimately want as it will be a long while before this plant gets much larger.
