Cycas Revoluta Flush

Post by GoggleboxUK » Sat May 14, 2011 2:37 pm

I'm not sure if this has been done before but I'm fairly certain my Cycad is about to flush so I thought I'd start a pictorial record of the progress for reference.

The plant is 14 years old (but new to me) and this will be the first time I have seen a Cycad create new fronds.

I first noticed a change in the crown about 2 weeks ago but it was only very slightly raised. It is now becoming more pronounced but still, I assume, very early in the flushing process.

Looking good Goggle for a flush soon,

Takes a while yet.

Here is mine, I bought it last year and it flushed in the same year (August)

The bigger these get, the more fronds they send in a flush.
My largest one sends about 20 each time now. Plenty of water and warmth helps initiate a flush.

Cheers, Barrie.

Make sure you don't move it otherwise the fronds will distort.
