Cycas tansachana is one of the largest cycads, native to limestone mountains in Thailand, about 100 Km North of Bangkok. It has a clean yellowish trunk and large leaves with long stiff leaflets. It can reach up to 7 m, with many branches and large base up to 1 m wide. It is attractive as a young plant because of the swollen base. Cycas tansachana is suited to pot colture.
