I was blessed with one of these wonderful plants (Cycad Palm) at Christmas, but unfortunately, I've run into a major problem. It was bright green but now it is a sandy brown. I was told to water it once a week through the core of the bulb but it has just up an "croaked on me". Is there any hope to revive this wonderful plant?
Franki, I'm sorry, but I don't know anything at all about Cycads. "Sandy brown" doesn't sound good, and I'd check to make sure the soil and roots don't seem waterlogged -- repot immediately if so, or just take it out of the pot and put it on a paper plate while figuring out the next step.
