Brown spots on my sago palm
For a couple of weeks now I’ve been noticing some brown spots on my sago palms leaves. Just today I noticed one leaf was completely brown and there are a couple more that have broken off because of the brown. What can I do to help him feel better?

Could it be getting to much heat and light? They like sun but depending on the intensity, it might be too much, especially if the sun gets quite hot and direct for many hours in the afternoon. Do you have any air vents that blow on this plant?
@malobee It’s possible. I just moved a couple of days ago and it’s been getting more light, but at my old house it didn’t get all that much. It could be the heat though
@NumberoneKowhai I would say then that it is the move and the change in light conditions! Changes like that can be stressful, and if it getting more light than it is used to it could be getting a wee sunburn until it can become accustomed to its new spot.
