Encephalartos kisambo Seedlings

Item # SdlgEncKis

Encephalartos kisambo grows in southern Kenya, in open evergreen cloud forests on steep mountain slopes. The Kisambo Cycad gets its name from the local Taita language.
This medium-large sized clumping cycad grows to 14 ft. trunk height, and can grow multiple stems. Its dramatically erect leaves can grow to 12+ feet long, making it one of the most spectacular cycad species.
The Kisambo Cycad is an easy to grow plant, which prefers light shade. It develops a long tap-root, so for the plant's long-term growth it is best to plant it in the ground. It prefers to avoid a hard frost.

These are seed grown plants.

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
