Encephalartos aemulans Seedlings

Item # SdlgEncAem

Encephalartos aemulans is an extremely rare South African cycad - whose habitat is limited to a single mountain in the Natal Province. Its name “aemulans” derives from the latin meaninig “equaling” - because its pollen and seed cones are very similar.

Encephalartos aemulans trunks grow to 10 feet tall and up to 1 ½ feet in diameter - with suckers growing from its from base. Its mature leaves are dark green and glossy - 3-6 feet in length. It is suitable for subtropical and warm temperate regions - and also tolerates light frosts. Like all cycads - it makes a great conservatory plant.

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.

Up to 1 Inch 1-2 Gallon
