: I have a bunch of King Sago's that
: were infested with white fly when I
: bought this house. They are much
: cleaner now with your help.
: Two questions. One must of been hit
: by a gardener or another worker,
: because I found it bent half way
: over. This plant is healthy and
: about 14 inches high with 4-5 small
: pups. I righted the plant and it
: stood up fine. I have no doubt that
: many of the roots were damaged. The
: ground is wet currently. Is there
: anything else I should do?
I wouldn't worry about the roots. You would want this area to be a little more dry if possible, but if this isn't possible, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I'd worry more about possible stem damage, or bruises on the stem that may come on later. Many times when they lean like that, a car has pushed it over, but not hit hard enough to snap the stem off.
