One of my Sagos has doubled it crown and now produces fronds from 2 heads on one plant.
How common is this?

So sorry for the late reply, but I had trouble finding a contact in California -- and obviously we don't know much about palm trees in North Dakota. However, James Bethke, nurseries and floriculture farm adviser with University of California Cooperative Extension -- San Diego County, said, "It is not common, but certainly not unheard of. A quick search of the Internet images shows lots of examples."
