Slightly unique C. Revoluta...maybe ?

Post by Arlon Tishmarsh » Tue Dec 21, 2010 8:06 am

Have had this tiny little cycad pup for a couple of years and was in the throws of giving it to Squirrell when we both decided it was a little unique ..so i kept it :lol:

Would anyone like to hazard a guess as to why it maybe a little unusual :?:

Wow! You should definately keep it - I've never seen one produce a golf ball as a pup before.

Ok you left it outside last winter and it died, so you chucked it on the compost heap, and on Easter Sunday it flushed a single frond :lol:

Smart 'arris :lol: OK keep the grand...me and Red didn't need it anyway...we can get rooms at the local hostel over xmas. :lol: :lol:

Its actually got 5no pups on it which have been there for ages and we thought considering its only a wee pup itself it was quite unusual.
