We have just begun digging cycads that have been growing since 2007, around 12 years in the ground from a 5 gallon plant about 3 years old, a total of 15 years.  Many are hard-to-find and all are exceptionally strong.  Our experience is that plants grown in the ground are free to expand, forming large root bases; as an example, most of our 3"-4" caudex cycads have root bases that fit snugly in a 5 gallon container, whereas cycads grown in containers usually do not have such large roots.  A large root base will likely have a greater rate of growth.  And, you can be assured that these cycads are fully acclimated--no need to "introduce" these plants to the sun.  The list below is of these dug cycads, some in Hanson A-1 soil (the very best) and some are in perlite.  Why?  Cycads that were extracted from the soil that was soft from recent rains came out blemish free and can go directly into soil.  Cycads that grew lateral roots (roots growing sideways) that were struck during digging or were in hard DG, decomposed granite, may have had roots that were nicked or broken; the procedure is to clean then seal the exposed areas with pruning seal, dry then plant in inert, bacteria-free perlite for 3 months.  This is done so the cycad does not intake harmful pathogens and become diseased during its period of recovery.  Does this concern you?  We are confident of our process and offer a guarantee for one (1) year for any of these newly dug plants; just bring back this cycad and we will replace it with your choice of a like-value cycad.         

 

Plan to spend as much time as you want looking over our wide selection of palms and cycads.  There are many mature plants IN THE GROUND to help you imagine your new palm or cycad at your home.  See our hillside bank of African cycads.  Over 550 palms and cycads are in the ground.  You will find value and high quality.  We will be glad to answer any and all of your questions and instruct you where and how to place your plant. 

 

We accept credit cards.
