Re: cycad

Speaking of cycads.........saw a sago palm that was a bonsai.  Cute as can 
be.  It had tiny fronds on a pup base, in a bonsai pot......wasn't a young 
pup though.   Could this be done with a regular sago pup, or was this perhaps 
some type of miniature?? The friend that had it didn't know, but said they'd 
had it for some years.   Anyone have any ideas?
