Encephalartos - The Royalty of Cycad Plant Species

Encephalartos Species

Encephalartos Plants are among the rarest and most endangered species of all cycads. These majestic plants are native to Africa. Encephalartos plants are among the most strikingly unique and sought after cycads. The Encephalartos species you'll find below encompass cycad species from thorny blue Encephalartos horridus to thorny green Encephalartos ferox, from tall green Encephalartos altensteinii to ultra blue-grey Encephalartos lehmannii.
Currently, Encephalartos are available for sale in the USA only.

Here is a video of Encephalartos we saw when we visited South Africa:

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
