Zamia furfuracea - Cardboard Palm
This sale is for 10 fresh seeds of the Cardboard Palm - Zamia furfuracea
Another very easy to grow Cycad with the added advantage of being fast growing too.
A native of coastal Mexico, it has been widely introduced to other areas. It is very popular as it grows quickly for a cycad and soon forms a dense cover of leafy fronds.
In cultivation this needs a rich potting soil, a bright location but away from direct sunlight which would scorch the 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 or 3 leaves the first year and perhaps 10 - 15 thereafter - making it very fast for a cycad (normally you would expect only 2 or 3).
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 ground cover outside in areas where there is no frost.
