Why Should I Grow A Cycad?


Why grow cycads? Here are four reasons you should consider growing a cycad in your garden, conservatory, greenhouse or home:

1. Cycads are survivors of pre-history. Imagine growing a rare plant in your garden, a collectible that has existed for over 280 million years, in the time of the dinosaurs, before plants even knew how to flower.

2. Cycads are living sculptures--Awesome looking architectural plants that add a distinctive touch to any garden or landscape.

3. When you grow a cycad, you are preserving an endangered species. Every time you nurture a cycad in your garden or home, you are part of a worldwide endangered species preservation movement, ensuring the survival of these plants that are threatened in the wild.

4. Cycads are environmentally friendly. They require little water or other resources to survive and thrive.

WHAT IS CAUDEX SIZE?

You’ll notice we list and price cycads by their caudex size (diameter in inches). The caudex is a cycad’s woody, bulblike trunk. Caudex diameter is a good measure of a cycad's age. The chart below can give you a rough idea of how this translates to pot size.

Caudex Size
(Diameter)
Container Size
(Volume)
Up to 1 Inch 1-2 Gallon
1 Inch to 3 Inch 3-5 Gallon
3 Inches to 7 Inches 15 Gallon
7 Inches and Up 24 Inch Box
