    that sago palm is a nice tree, my brother has one but it never gets more than 1-3 leaf branches, it grows pretty then they fall off and new ones come up. i like it with only 1-3 sticking out.. nice and small

    Is it inside or out?/how is the lighting? How is it waterd ,is when the soil is damp dry? Do the leaves slays fall off at a specific length or age?

    it is inside, light is about what you get from a kitchen table, indirect sunlight.

    no idea on the other specifics, just know that i like it

    Doent sound like enough light, try agrow light about 2' above, u can get regular sized light bulbs that are grow light off AmazonWeedBulbs : PowerMAX - SINGLE STAGE / FULL SPECTRUM CFL GROW LIGHT 4-PACK, Model:CB1024MA, 24w/120v/60Hz https://www.amazon.com/dp/B013YZYC6U..._DhuBybPNHEJ7K
    This may be a bit easer than having to pick a bulb bases on what your growing SunBlaster 13 Watt CFL Grow Lamp 4 pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AKKUZ7I..._cnuByb1BWXFQF
