So I went on Google Maps and was looking around near Cairns Australia just to see what it looked like, and I saw this. Does anyone know what cycad this is? It looks really cool.

I'm not an expert either, but definitely qualify as a cycad fan.  My assumption with those wide leaflets in an Australian cycad was immediately L hopei as well.

I can't see where its located in the state, but it appears to be quite a ways north on the coast.   Media is native north of Brisbane.

Media is the most common Cycas around Cairns although there are others inland. You see plenty only a few hundred metres from beaches/coastline. This is a C. media near Cairns only about 7 or 8 kms from the coast.

      Does anyone know of any good fruiting banana varieties? I am wanting to start some banana seeds in the fall and grow them indoors to a nice size and then plant them outdoors the next Spring with the hopes that they will get big enough to produce some bananas later in the summer.

      What is this plant? I am sure it is an easy one but I have never seen it before, it's planted at a pool. I like the looks of it.

      I received three giant dioon seeds from Seedman.com today, how do I properly germinate them? Do I soak them like palm seeds? They are massive, like the size of small eggs, and I hear rattling inside when I shake them.
