Item # SdlgEncAre

Also known as the Alexiandra Cycad, this plant is native to the coastal sand-dunes of the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. It is a medium-sized cycad, with a trunk to about 4-5 ft. long, either erect, or reclining. It requires excellent drainage (i.e. sandy soil), and prefers light shade or moderate sun. It should be protected from frost. The Alexandria Cycad is distinguished by the slightly dull silver or grey sheen of its adult leaves, and its gracefully lobed leaflets.

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
