Zamia obliqua
Mature 12 Inch Caudex Plants

Item # ZamiObli
Price:$650.00




We have finally succeeded, after a number of attempts, in importing a few of these mature, tall caudex plants.
Zamia obliqua is an arborescent Zamia that can grow to 6 meters tall and it occurs at sea level from the Cabo Corrientes area in the Choco all the way into Panama and at 200 to 400 meters near Quibdo, the largest town in the Choco. It grows in a variety of soils from the sandy coastal soils of Bahia Solano to the heavy latosol clays of the Quibdo areas.
This species has great horticultural potential with its distinctive smooth slender trunk, and apple green shiny leaves with leaflets inserted at oblique angles. It produces leaves simultaneously and crowns on old plants sometimes branch and can carry up to 20 leaves at a time. The cones are large and produce abundant seed. In habitat, Zamia obliqua is under increased threat from logging and development.
We only have a few of these rare plants.
