Dioon with cone ID
I'm not very good with Dioon identification, and this one is coning for the first time. I bought it as a seedling in a 3"x9" band about a decade ago. I think this one was labeled as Dioon edule "Palma Sola" form. Any thoughts on whether the label and my memory serve me correctly? Also, any input on the sex of the cone. It may still be too early to assess the sex, as it's still pushing out.
Digging a Dioon- easy, hard or ?
Pictured below is what looks like a Dioon mejiae, under my spreading Brahea brandeegii.
I'm planning to mulch heavily with wood ashes and palm leaves and I want to dig out the Dioon.
I'd greatly appreciate any shared experiences about digging and moving them. I assume they move relatively easily, but if I'm wrong please advise.
Thanks in advance!

Dioon spinulosum variegated- CONFIRMED
By BS Man about Palms
Sooo.. I was digging through old threads and found I picked this up, or more accurately spotted it working a sale for Phil at Jungle Music, waaaaay back in March, 2008
The older leaf appeared to have variegation, but the newest did not. It was decided it was likely variegated, but to not fertilize it or keep it in the sun..
PS- was surprised to see that, a) my photobucket link was still working, that I had so many cool old pics there..
At the end of the day .... Dioon spinulosum i think
i was really excited thinking that my seed was encephalartos but i guess it is dioon spinulosum, its a very nice cycad although.... What do you think??? i need some comments here hehe
