WHAT IS CAUDEX SIZE?

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
(Diameter)
Container Size
(Volume)
Up to 1 Inch 1-2 Gallon
1 Inch to 3 Inch 3-5 Gallon
