Will it regrow? I'm sure I've read on here that you can cut the caudex up to save plants or generate n...

Cycas circinalis

Francis, how is your cycas circinalis doing ? Mine has sat with leaves tied loosely together in the greenhouse all winter, from what I can see it looks pretty much as it did when I put it away. I know yours was a nicer plant and if ...

Cycas Winter care

See pic attached, My cycas new fronds were not a big as the previous one when taken outdoor this year, the larger one were when it was indoors.

With frost now started in west midlands, can this plant be kept indoors in a garage now, it has a window for light source?

Problem with Cycas revoluta

Hello.

I have a small revoluta I bought in 08 from Ikea. It's planted out and put out 5 fronds in 09. This year it put out one stunted frond in June. In August it started to put one more; it got to about 2 cm then stopped....then dried and died. What could this mean? Is it doomed??
