Cycas petraea

Cycas petraeaAlso known as the "Loei Cycad," this rare and large new cycad species from Thailand has only recently been scientifically described. It grows on Thailand's coldest mountains--the mountains in Loei in the north of Thailand--not far from the border to Laos. On winter nights the temperature here drops well below freezing - occasionally even with snowfall - so this species is well adapted to temperate and subtropical climates.

Cycas petraea can grow a trunk about 7 feet tall. The leaves are short and flat with 32-40 dark green - very glossy - and slightly waxy leaflets on either side and are carried on a fairly long petiole.

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.
