Mission Statement of the Jurassic Garden


Our goal is to preserve endangered species, and increase their worldwide population, so they will be alive for future generations. We will do this by:
  • Importing, propagating, preserving and growing endangered plants, pursuing Preservation through Propagation.
  • Teaching others how to grow and preserve endangered species in their own gardens..
  • Selling endangered plants at favorable prices to get as many of them as possible into gardens and landscapes, thus preserving the species.
Ultimately, we will have achieved a measure of success if in the coming years:
  1. There will be ample quantities of cycads of all sizes available to home gardeners at reasonable prices.
  2. Gardeners and landscapers will nurture and care for cycads knowing they are beautiful endangered relics from prehistory.
  3. Cycad habitats in the wild will become intriguing places to visit, examine and study, not harvesting grounds for poachers.

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
3 Inches to 7 Inches 15 Gallon
7 Inches and Up 24 Inch Box
