Zamia sp. ‘Alvarado’ Seedlings

Item # SdlgZamAlv

(Please click on the image to enlarge it.)

This species is from a town in Mexico named Alvarado. It grows 350 yards from the ocean. It is a relatively cold-hardy zamia, with thick, leathery leaflets, which have a blue-grey cast to them.
These seeds are descended from plants which grew from seeds donated by Loran Whitelock many years ago to the Hawaiian botanical gardens. Below, you will see a scan of one leaf, which has flattened somewhat, as is has been placed on a scanner. The leaves are more of a V or keel-shape.

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
