In the wild Cycas revoluta is restricted to a few of the islands of the Japanese archipelago but, worldwide, it is the most commonly cultivated cycad. This is due to its ease of culture and ability to withstand a wide range of conditions. In appearance it is the archetypical cycad forming, in time, a tall rough trunk and with crown of glossy deep green leaves at the top and often surrounded by offsets. Indoors it is best grown in a bright position or conservatory. The Sago Palm is also one of the few cycads worth trying outdoors in a milder garden.

Pot sizes

With items such as ferns, juvenile tree ferns and herbaceous plants it is difficult to give the exact size of each species when such a wide range of plants are grown so we specify standard pot sizes to give an indication of the size and/or age of the plant you are buying.

Sometimes the pot size might vary slightly from the standard or we might listed as 2-3 litre pot, depending on the growers we purchased them from. However, the sizes of the plants are similar in height and spread.

Sometimes the plants might be photographed in decorative pots. However, please bear in mind that our plants are kept in plastic nursery pots.

Plant height

For the outdoor plants, that are meant to be planted in the ground, the height of the pot is excluded from the measurement. The height is measured from the top of the pot to the tallest leaf or branch of the plant.

All plants are measured when brought to our nursery, however, due to natural factors, the actual size of the plant might change over time due to adjustments to the environment. When picking multiple plants for an order, we aim to pick matching plants.

Product warranties

We can guarantee that the plants leave our nursery disease free, but weather and local conditions might affect their survival. Make sure you always make an informed purchasing decision.

The plants that leave our nursery are in the best condition, free of disease. Kept in adequate conditions (positioning and care), the plants are guaranteed for 3 months if they are planted in the ground or one year if they are kept in their original pots. Return policy applies only to plants that are in their original pots.

Customer reviews


Received a lovely plant in a very attractive pot. Looks great in my conservatory.


I visited the palm centre on Tuesday very big garden centre i was satisfied with my purchase i will return with my sister next week Thanks ..


Having spoken to a couple of very friendly and helpful staff at the Palm Centre I ordered the 9ltr/80-90cm cycad revoluta. My order arrived extremely well packaged a couple of days later. The plant is an absolute beauty, very healthy and in excellent condition. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Palm Centre.


After finding online, we took a trip to The Palm Centre, Amazing place and bought a Cycas Revoluta which we are going to put out in a month or two, potted and into a fairly sheltered position. Also bought a couple of smaller plants, Will be back, just a nice place to wander round.


Super size, larger than I was expecting it to be, although I'm not the best at sizes in cm. Fabulously healthy plant, very happily planned in it's new position. I have bought many similar plants from the palm centre and everyone has been better than anticipated, I love their plants


My Cycas arrived well packed and in excellent condition. i am very pleased. I am currently revamping my garden so will definitely visit the Palm Centre again/
