We currently offer anadult plant grown in 14 x 20 cm pots, locally grown from seed. Leaves longer than 90 cm do not fit in the box. If you agree, we will cut of all parts above 90 cm in height. The plant may look ugly at first but it will produce new leaves after some time. These cycads are very tolerant of leaf cut because they have very thick robust bases and can sprout back quickly.
