Cycas angulata

A large and robust cycad from a small area in northern Australia, where it grows in seasonally dry grass and woodlands. The tall, occasionally branching trunk holds a spherical crown of distinctly V-shaped, arching, gray-green leaves with narrow leaflets. An imposing plant for the drier tropics and warm subtropics.

... are very easy to germinate and need up to 1 month to sprout.
Very easy to germinate when fresh, I soaked for 24hours in water and then put the seeds in a zip bag with damp coco peat. I kept the bag at 25°C, first seed sprout after 5 days or so, after 3 weeks 90% of the seeds had sprouted.

Lucky me to have fresh seeds. This time I tried a different method. I soaked the seeds and as they cracked (they started to crack by the 2nd day), I put them in a clear plastic box with moist newspaper as the medium. Temp was in the 80F constantly. It only took 8 days from soaking to germination. By the 3rd week, I have potted 8 seeds with long radicles and the other 2 look to germinate anytime in the box.

Cycas seed is mostly very easy to germinate. After moved the outer shell and soak them in water for 1 day , please do not forget to fill some fungicide power into the water and insecticide power as well. Make the seed dry for 3 hours and then lay them all into a pot. Used sand + peat moss as an germination media. The germination media should not dry and should not wet too. The seed will be germinated round 3 - 4 weeks later.

Suitable for: all

The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is the definitive account of all palms that can be grown for ornamental and economic use. Palms are often underutilized as a result of their unfamiliarity—even to tropical gardeners. To help introduce these valuable plants to a new audience, the authors have exhaustively documented every genus in the palm family.
825 species are described in detail, including cold hardiness, water needs, height, and any special requirements. Generously illustrated with more than 900 photos, including photos of several palm species that have never before appeared in a general encyclopedia, The Encyclopedia of Cultivated Palms is as valuable as an identification guide as it is a practical handbook. Interesting snippets of history, ethnobotany, and biology inform the text and make this a lively catalog of these remarkable plants.
