The cycas, also called cycad, grows particularly well in our climate, despite the fact that the cycas is a slow grower. The maximum height that the Cyclas can reach is 3 meters. However, this takes a very long time, up to 100 years and so the palm will most likely outlive you. The cycas can be on the terrace from mid-May to October. In winter, the cycas should be placed in a frost-free place "despite its winter hardiness". However, the cycas can also be kept in the house or office in winter "as a precaution".
It is best to overwinter large plants in an unheated garage or under a shelter. Optionally, you can wrap the pot with insulating material.
Cycasrevolutai is easy to maintain, full sun! no problem. The plant likes well-draining soil and give it plenty of water. Feed monthly, preferably cow manure pellets.
The Cycas Revoluta is originally from Japan and is a family of the Cycadaceae. It is a very old variety and can last a lifetime in your home if you take good care of this plant!
The plant produces long leaves that unfurl "like ferns". The plant prefers to be in a large tub so that it can develop roots well.
Do not touch the leaves of the Cycas Revoluta too much with your hands, otherwise they will turn brown.
The cycas revoluta is a particularly beautiful and strong palm.
