Cycas revoluta 95cm
The trunk of the Cycas is known as a caudex. Stiff, shiny fronds grow in a rosette from the trunk, initially in an upright manner before arching gracefully as they age. New leaves emerge all at once rather than developing continuously. This periodic flush of new growth is known as a 'break'. New leaves are fragile, so avoid disturbing the plant at this time. However, if the leaves start to lean towards a source of light, turn the plant slightly each day until they harden. Cycas revoluta is a majestic option for a house or office plant and will provide an ancient and exotic focal point.
