Post by shanks » Fri Apr 27, 2012 9:30 pm

the wife has wanted one of these for a while, she bought a small one ages ago but it snuffed it as we were'nt into tropicals then, anyway, it came from spain is about 110 cms high not including the pot and caudex is about 25cms high and very thick, leaves are still a bit scrunched up but i guess thats with being tied up all week and in the dark

That's a cracking plant Shanks, what did that cost you?
Once upon a time there were 3 little bears. Now there's thousands of them.

Shanks, you have to select one perfect place where more light is available for your Cycas. Observe Simbha's, Dave's winter technique. If you observe mine all that divine flush happened in just 14 days at 38*C. icon_sunny

Buy Cycas from New Zealand's nursery where every single Cycas is cute in this link

I wonder why those trunks are red. icon_spiderman
