I think I've ID'd my biggest Cycad

I think my largest cycad is actually not a Revoluta but a CYCAS THOUARSII (pictured below) What do you reckon? http://www.junglemusic.net/New%20Plant%20Arrivals/Cycas%20thouarsii%2015g%205%20ich%20(Large)%20(Small).JPG ...

Whats eating my Cycas revoluta?

Been spraying it with Plant Rescue once a week for 3 or 4 weeks. Doesn't seem to have made any difference. Should I wash the "bugs" off? The plant was bought in the sale (I'm thinking it arrived with bugs ... not seen these on anything else I have), and has been under MH lamp for 3 or 4 weeks - alon...

Palm,cycad and Tree fern Grave Yard

Close to where my in-laws live is a small bungalow where an old lady used to live. Earlier this year a middle aged man moved in (possibly her son) and since then a lot of dead plants have been put in the front garden and down the side of the garage. These are several Dicksonia antarctica between 3 t...

Emperor Cycad

Has anyone tried growing the Cycas taitungensis, or Emperor or Prince Cycad, over in Britain? I know it grows as far north as Oklahoma City, zone 7, and further north as a cut-and-come-again perennial.

The Emperor is reportedly more cold-hardy (and larger) than the common cycad revoluta.

Thanks.
