: I have three sagos that were here when
: we bought the house 7 years ago. I
: don't know what variety. They are
: about 3 ft high and very full &
: wide. The bottom fronds have been
: cut off regularly. We have had
: serious scale problems I've been
: trying to manage with vox oil and
: dish detergent. The new flush on
: one came out all curly and brown and
: most of the lower fronds have also
: died. When we were cutting off all
: the dead fronds, we noticed very
: thick, brown spongey
: "stuff" totally covering
: the apex. It has the consistency of
: insulation and looks like it will
: smother any new frond growth. What
: is it? Does it have to do with the
: scale?Is it a fungus? Should I
: remove it? What should I do?
