This ultra-rare Colombian species grows in small populations at the highest elevation of any neotropical cycad, ranging from 1500 to 2500 meters above sea level, where the temperature can go down to 2 C and below. This cold tolerance makes Z. montana a plant with unique horticultural potential as it can be grown outdoors in subtropical areas, and potentially in temperate areas with shelter.
The plants we have are 12+ months old, slightly younger than the plants pictured above, which are 2-3 years old. This easy-to-grow plant is particularly attractive when it flushes because of the rich golden hues in its leaves. In their natural habitat some plants live on top of hills and in cliffs in full sun while others live in the depth of cool and moist forests.
We are working with a Colombian exporter to propagate seeds from artificially-grown specimens. Hopefully, this will take pressure off wild populations. These artificially propagated plants are being imported under pertinent CITES and USDA regulations.
These rare seedlings are available at the price listed below, plus shipping to your door.
