Handbook of cycad cultivation and landscaping

Handbook of cycad cultivation and landscaping

This guide is created so that workers at botanical gardens and nurseries, as well as serious hobbyists can rapidly access vital facts needed to keep cycad plants in good health. In this guide you will find, at a glance, information to select watering, light conditions and planting site for a cycad, whether in a pot or in the ground. Included are possible pests and situations to avoid. As well you will find things to anticipate such as pollination times for those species you wish to propagate.

It is a work in progress intended to be an open access work to promote conservation through best practices in cultivation.  It reflects on your institutions’ commitment to serve the cycad conservation community.
