I am not exactly sure as I am new to this plant stuff, Just wanted some form of beatification for my house.

The plant name is Tiger Sago palm tree. After some checking online, I gathered that a common pest is spider mite that causes brownish leaf on the plant.

This is what it looked like when I bought it.

infact i suspected spidermites also, i wanted to be sure cuz the infestation looks exactly like spidermitee but not sure wether they attack such a plant as this. Next, i would hav ask you that is if u hav a magnifying lens to look on the underside of the leaves for some red dot moving around the underside of the leaves. U can use a systemic insectide such as cypermethrin. Or if u hav non use a liquid soap solution with water and spray and wash d leaves throuroughly every 3-4 days dat way it will break their life cycle.
