Cycad Horticulture Presentation from the 2008 Cycad International Biology Conference

Cycad Horticulture Presentation from the 2008 Cycad International Biology Conference


The 8th International Conference on Cycad Biology was held in Panama City, Panama, from January 12-18, 2008. This was the eighth in a series of meetings held every three years since 1987 to bring together scientists, conservation practitioners, and cycad enthusiasts to share ideas and to celebrate this remarkable group of plants.

Attached as a PDF file in 4 parts is the PowerPoint presentation I gave on January 13, on the first morning of the Conference.

For additional information on the growing methods discussed here, please see How to Grow Cycads in Field & Garden

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
