...easy to germinate and need more than 1 year to
Incubated six seeds in moist vermiculite at around 30°C One germinated after 6 months. I was told that germination
can take around 18 months. Planted the first seed in a mixture of kokohum, sand and perlite.

...difficult to germinate and need
more than 1 year to sprout.
Lengthy germination time is an understatement. First seed germinated
after 1 year and others are continuing after year and half. Best
to leave pointed side down 1/3 submerged into soil. No heating or
plastic covering will help. Its actually better to not cover with
plastic or baggie method with most cycads as they do not need or
like this type of dampness or humidity.

This species is quite peculiar in its requirements in germination.
It takes a very long time, one years is the rule. Probably the embryo
need more time to develop completely, because the seeds are very
large. Would be better to don't sow soon the seeds, but store them
in vermiculite or peat, just slightly moist, for several months.
Then, precede in the usual way. However, rate is satisfactory; just
you have to be patient.
