Veracruz, Mexico.

Distribution & Habitat:

Wet, tropical rainforest.


A small cycad with a trunk to about 20cm tall, but with leaves up to 3.2m long, and leaflets to 30cm long, and 15cm wide.


One of the most sought after cycads (rather obvious why), but very, very rare. Apparently only about 30 plants are known to exist in the wild.


Warm, sheltered and moist.
