  1. Hi, I hope you can help!!
    I purchased my Sago Palsm at Wal-Mart, this past x-mas. Did not know it was Bonzai family, until reading today – how to care, etc. I placed my plant outside for a few days, (60-70’s) and all the leaves fell down to the side. Temp dropped to the 40’s and I covered it and brought it inside for a couple weeks. It is uncovered, and the leaves still on the side. 1. The pot is standard issue of regular plants 2. Can I save it and get the leaves upright again? 3. What method do I use? with best recommendations of pot type to soil. 4. Can I clip from it to begin another one (if it isnot dead).
    I live in Lexington, Ky…not sure of the region.
    Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully you will be able to help me. I think was beautiful and really want to keep it.
