I love all kinds of Cycas as much as I love palms and all the other tropical stuff that I grow. They are delightful impressive antiques! Thanks for the pics. More??

You should try the E. arenarius pollen on the natalensis, could come up with a very gnarly looking hybrid. Nice plants.

Why not indeed, can someone tell me the Best pollination technique. I was told to pour the male pollen into a flat (no more bubbles) bottle of Soda Water and pour over female cone as they are opening. Look fwd to hearing "what works best" Pete :)
