Growth Habit:

After many years of growth, this cycad may have a short caudex above ground. Typically the caudex remains below the surface of the soil and the rosette of leaves seems to rise directly from the ground. The leaves appear in “flushes” of several leaves at a time, usually once a year. They are tough and leathery.

Growing Requirements:

Partial shade and moist, humus-rich soil.


The new leaves emerge a bronze shade and gradually turn glossy green.

Where at Lotusland:

In the cycad garden.
