Our Trip to Africa


(Please click on image to enlarge this photo.)

My son Adam and I took a trip to South Africa in 2002. We visited the Johannesburg area, as well as the Eastern Cape, and Natal. In the Durban Botanical Garden, we took the picture you see here. This is the original Encephalartos woodii, harvested from the wild by Medley Wood in 1895. All E. woodii's around the world are descended from this plant!

Included in these pictures is a contest, Name that Plant! Please click on the bottom link here to play, and maybe win a free gift from A&A Cycads.

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
