    I have just harvested a cone which started to dehisce yesterday afternoon.. This is a very rare species and pretty much never available. Seeds are $9 each and limited numbers available. Happy growing.

    Here's a photo of a cut seed showing the embryo also for providence.. Should be very high germination (I pollinated with 3 cones worth of pollen morning and afternoon the fist day, and also the following morning). Happy growing.

    Hello. I am writing from Mckee Botanical Garden in Vero Beach, Florida. Please let me know if you ever have these seeds available again. This plant has been on our Horticultural Directors wish list for quite some time. Thank you

    This species should be available from cycad oriented nurseries or collectors in Florida
