Zamia pygmaea

Zamia pygmaeaZamia pygmaea is also known as the Red Dwarf cycad. It is quite rare with its most distinguishing feature is its dwarf stature. It grows under extremely dry conditions in extreme habitats, so it is very drought tolerant. Zamia pygmaea becomes more vigorous and produces more and larger leaves and larger stems under cultivation.

It is native to Western Cuba and the Isla de Pinos. Plants of Zamia pygmaea generally grow in open dry habitats, varying from stone outcrops to almost pure sand. It is one of the most xerophytic species in the genus Zamia, so it is adaptable to hot and dry climates.
