Cycads with Fernlike Leaves

Cycads with Fernlike LeavesCycads are sometimes mistaken for ferns, and some resemble ferns, such as these species below. And while ferns and cycads are both prehistoric plants, they are unrelated, and their resemblance is coincidental.

Tree ferns and cycads both have a central trunk, topped by a whorl of leaves. Cycad and fern leaves have a central stalk flanked by rows of leaflets on both sides. But these similarities are merely superficial. Each plant reproduces very differently. Cycads produce cones from their trunk, whereas ferns bear spores on the undersides of their leaves.

With that being said, here are some cycads that have fernlike leaves!
