I live in the Florida Panhandle. My pot planted Sago had a white scale. I took off all the fronds and was going to trash the entire palm. New fronds have started to sprout. Can this be planted in the ground? If so, should I keep the old root ball, or should the entire palm be trashed?


I would give it a try in the ground in a sunny, dry place with the root ball. If it does not survive, then trash it.
