Pollen Policy
Our policy is based on the philosophy of sharing, so if you send us pollen, we'll give you 50% of the seed we generate from it. Likewise, if we send you pollen, you will send us 50% of the seed you generate. We always offer to include the floaters when we send you seed, so that you know we're doing our share. Likewise, we'd hope you'll offer to send us your floaters, too.

It would be great to increase the worldwide population of these species. Please email us at if you have or need a match for any of these. In your email, please write in the Subject line the species and sex of the cone, if you know them.



Please Note: All sales are limited to items available in stock
at the time of your purchase and are subject to prior sale.

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
