The cycas also called palm ferns grows very well in our climate, despite the fact that the cycas is a slow grower. The maximum height that the Cycas can reach is 3 meters. However, this takes a very long time, up to 100 years and so the palm will probably survive. The cycas can be on the terrace from mid-May to October. In winter, the cycas will have to be in a frost-free place despite its winter hardiness. However, the cycas may also be stored in the home or at the office in the winter as a precaution.
You should do the wintering of large plants in an unheated garage or under a shelter. Possibly you can wrap the pot with insulation material.
Cycas revoluta is easy to maintain, full sun! no problem. The plant does like well draining soil and give it enough water. Give a monthly diet, preferably cow manure pellets.
The Cycas Revoluta is originally from Japan and is related to the Cycadaceae. It is a very old variety and can also last a lifetime with you at home, provided you take care of this plant!
The plant makes long leaves that unroll like "ferns". The plant prefers to stand in a large tub so that it can make roots well.
Do not touch the leaves of the Cycas Revoluta too much with their hands, otherwise they will turn brown.
The cycas revoluta is a particularly beautiful and strong palm.
