Encephalartos (Bread Palm)

Bread Palms is a small archaic genus with evergreen plants from Central and Southern Africa. They are slow growing plants and with age they make a short to almost-tree like stem and a crown of hard pinnate leaves leaves. All Encephalartos species are dioecious, i. e. male and female inflorescences (the so called cones) occur on separate plants. Most species are easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot throughout the year. In winter keep plants drier at a minimum of some 15°C. Seeds will be shipped with the fruit flesh in order to protect them from desiccation. Prior to sowing soak the seed for 24 h in warm water and remove any adherent fruit flesh.
Sow large seed flat in any rich, well drained substrate at a minimum of some 25°C throughout the year in full sun.
1 large seed per package.
Seeds are available for a delivery within Europe (with the exception of Norway and Switzerland) only!
