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.

Hot and dry in the summer, cold with light frost in the winter. Halfway between the desert and the ocean.

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 :)
