Cycas revoluta - The Sago Palm

This sale is for 5 fresh seeds of the Sago Palm - Cycas revoluta.

An easy to grow cycad, one of the most popular and widely grown.  The seeds are very large and heavy averaging 13 grams a seed.

Native to southern Japan, this is now a widespread ornamental in tropical areas as well as being a popluar houseplant.  It is a relatively slow growing plant and it is unlikely to outgrow its location.  Old specimens can get to 6 or 7 metres tall, but this takes many years.  The plants are either male or female and both are needed to produce seeds (mature plants over 10 years old)

In cultivation this needs a rich potting soil, a bright location but away from direct sunlight for the first few years which would scorch the young leaves.  It is tolerant of a wide range of cultural conditions provided the note about direct sunlight is observed.  The plants will put out 2 leaves the first year and perhaps 3 - 5  thereafter.

Germinating the seeds is really easy and once the root appears and you pot the seedling up, you should have the first leaf a few weeks later.
Ideal as a houseplant in temperate areas or as an ornamental outside in areas where there is no frost and high average summer temperatures.

UK customers -  these seeds have to be sent packet post due to the size of the seed

International customers - in order to keep the price down, I need to charge the exact postal cost for these seeds.
