actually, this is the first mention I've ever seen you make about cycads on your property (perhaps I haven't been paying close enough attention though....)

I'm sure I have posted cycad photos in the past, but it's certainly been infrequent. I'll see if I can find a few more cycads tomorrow... :lol:

Bo, Those plants look awesome! George said if they are flushing and coning at the same time that they are happy plants. If thats the case you got some VERY HAPPY plants there :) . I bet the growth rate is just ridiculous there as well. That Laurentianus is gonna get HUGE :blink: . I'll have to plant some on my side of the pig fence :drool: .

Here are two leaves of seperate plants side by side.

They are only a few days apart in putting out their latest flush (well two new leaves).

Slowly turning green from bronze.

I don't understand Bill.

I thought that was a real answer to the question.

I hope I did not unknowingly imply that.

Woohoo. I just noticed that my little blue Encephalartos longifolius is flushing. It sent up two leaves each about two months apart last year. Maybe if I get lucky I'll get another couple in July or thereabouts. I planted this out just about two years ago exactly when the little caudex was about an inch and a half. I'd guess the caudex has just about doubled in size since then.

With this one it is more the question :

Is it flushing because it is happy or is it trying to get attention so someone will give it's roots some more room ?

Two years ago it coned (female) and was ignored .........

Latifrons x altensteinii, my favorite hybrid. Every bit as slow as latifrons.

OK I'm new at this.... will someone PLEASE help.... with the picture situation, it is driving me nuts. I can't get large mega pixal images posted, and I can't seem to reduce my normal hi-res photos down to 250k-... And I see most of you posting large hi-res photos.... :huh::blink::angry::rage:

I've tried to figure this out, but I must be missing something. I have some flushing C. Mt Surprise pics I want to post...

Thanks
