Cycad cones and flushes


Urban Rainforest

Recommended Posts

Sweatness Stevo. No expert, but it looks female kisambo to me. The male cones that I have seen are taller and more narrow.

Very nice photo! Cool that the leaves start out so brightly colored.

What species of cycad is that? An encephalartos right?

That baby rocks George, the leaflet angle makes me think latifrons, but the leaflets look different. It's hard to tell from that picture. Is it a hybrid?

I've been getting some first time coneage this year on a few of my Cycads. Here is another pic of my coning E. Kisambo. I think it is safe to say it's a female because these cones are HUGE!

I just noticed that I'm getting my first bit of coneage. This Dioon palma sola just finished hardening off it's latest flush. I am totally stoked.

It looks like it will be a great coning season this fall.

But that does not mean the flushing will stop .......

The "fuzz" around the previous flush has not even gotten dirty and it is already flushing again.

Happy flushing (here is an opening for you Bill),

Here is what the Alti x Tri from Post 167 turned out to look like.

On some of the leaves you can see how they are still turning blue

from the bottom up towards the tips.

I was standing on a stepladder to get more of an inside shot but I could not get the entire plant due to it's 8'+ width.
