That is a stunning collection, Josef. Do you over-winter them in that greenhouse shown on the right? Can you give us a list of the species shown?

Cycads

Post by chumleycycads.com » Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:36 pm

Looks like my cycads.......only mine are in the ground and more of them planted in colonies and some are much larger.
I live on 12 acres in Central Florida about half way between Tampa and Walt Disney World.I have seed colonies of over 60 varieties of cycads. I have over one half acre of variegated cycads and I make many hybrids as well.

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of potting mixture are you using?

Hi cycadfreak, welcome.

You say your cycads are in the basement.
Is there a reason you're not summering them outdoors in Colorado?
