Cyca Revoluta, Also known as sago palm, king sago, sago cycad or Japanese sago palm, this ornamental belongs to the Cicadáceas family and is native to the southern-Japanese island of Ryukyu. It is a very ancient plant, a living fossil whose appearance gives the impression of it being a palm when it actually is not. Slow in growth, it takes 20 to 30 years for it to grow one metre, making it a worthwhile alternative to a bonsai. It can be held interior, but the plant dwells best in open-air settings. It requires lots of light near the window or sunlight, avoiding exposition to intense midday-sunshine. The sago palm adapts to temperatures ranging from -11 to 42 C° and requires water most of all during foliage. Its main enemies are the woodlouse and water shortage, requiring a well-draining soil and effective ventilation.
