Item # EncPteSdlg

E. pterogonus is an extremely rare plant from Mozambique, previously thought to be extinct in habitat. It derives its name from the Latin "pteron", meaning "wing", and gonas, seed, from the wings the unique “wings” or lobes on the lower edges of its pollen cone scales on many of these plants in habitat.
It features a mature trunk of 5-7 feet tall, attractive light green, highly glossy leaves up to 5 feet long, with short petioles and numerous reduced spine-like leaflets, green cones and red seed-coats. Its leaflets are lanceolate, flat (not keeled) in section with opposing leaflets inserted at 180°, arranged at an obtuse angle (45-80°) on the leaf, with basal leaflets reducing to spines.
These artificially propagated seedlings were imported under pertinent CITES regulations, and are available for sale within the USA only at this time.

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
