This book has been written by Pedro Capela, based on numerous years of research and actual travel to habitat sites. The author is a grower, agronomist and preservationist, having re-seeded numerous habitats with plants propagated in his own nursery in Mozambique. Mr. Capela has traveled up and down the country of Mozambique, to a large number of habitat sites, and may be the most expert individual concerning the various Encephalartos species and forms found in that country.

1. A Special First Edition, signed by the author,


2. A Premier Sponsors' First Edition, which is signed by the author, and includes a CD ROM containing an abundance of Encephalartos photographic images taken in habitats throughout Mozambique.

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
Container Size
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
