Redlands Collection at Indian Rock


Indian Rock Cycads and Palms is assisting a couple in Redlands, CA in selling their collection of specimen cycads that they have grown in the ground for 22 years.  We have grown our cycads here for 20-25 years so we are experienced with cycad care from cone, to seed, to seedling, to 1 gallon on up, then growing them in-the-ground. 

Our conceptual contribution has been to suggest a competitive selling price (because we know the market very well), develop a comprehensive inventory list with high definition photos, and then direct interested customers to these owners in order that the sale can be settled. 

Our hands-on contribution has been to dig these cycads using our "Soil Wrap" technique leaving a protective wrap of soil around the root base.  A special tripod with hand-operated winch is used to extract the cycad from its trenched, wetted location.  We carefully inspect the roots and, if required, protect them with fungicide and spur growth with root hormone.  These cycads are then placed in the appropriate container with Greatsoil LLC proprietary soil for cycads.  When this is done these cycads are ready to be planted in the ground immediately or to stay in this container for years.  

You are invited to view these cycads at our nursery.
