Why you should start a botanical garden with cycads, a blog about how to make a plant collection of shade loving plants. +


Cycads are an extraordinary family of plants, and they make great additions to gardens and collections. They’re slow-growing, shade-loving, and live for a very long time—which means that they’re also relatively easy to care for. In this blog post, I’ll teach you all about cycads and how best to grow them in your garden.

There are a lot of different species of cycads.

Cycads are an ancient group of plants with a long and distinguished lineage. There are around 250 species of cycad, although many are threatened with extinction. Some species of cycads are native to tropical regions and some grow in climates that have cold winters. The cycads that grow in cooler areas are often considered to be rare by collectors and tend to command higher prices when they appear on the market because they’re hard to find!

If you love plants as much as I do then this is definitely something you should consider starting a collection with! Not only will it give you something new each year but it’ll also help keep these amazing plants around for future generations too!

Cycads are shade-loving plants.

Cycads are slow-growing plants and will be happiest if you can find a spot for them that gets plenty of shade. In this blog, we’ll talk about the basics of starting a botanical garden and how to make a plant collection of cycads.

Cycads are poisonous plants and should not be eaten or handled by small children who may put their hands in their mouths while playing outside.

Cycads are slow-growing plants.

Cycads are slow-growing plants. The fact that they grow slowly is a good thing because it means you get to enjoy them for a long time. A cycad can live for more than 100 years if well cared for, so you’ll have plenty of time to watch your plant grow from an infant into a mature adult.

Cycads also have a reputation for being difficult to grow. This isn’t the case with all types of cycads; some varieties are easy to care for and will thrive even in less than ideal conditions. However, if you do choose one that requires special care, don’t be discouraged! Most people who try their hand at growing cycads find that caring for them isn’t as tricky as they thought it would be (and no matter which type of plant you choose, we suggest starting small).

Cycads can live for a long time, even thousands of years.

Cycads are plants that can live for a long time, even thousands of years. The oldest cycad is thought to be the [[Lepidozamia riedlei]] which is estimated to be anywhere from 1,000 to 8,000 years old! That’s pretty impressive if you think about it. A lot of people don’t live that long and if they do it’s usually because they’re lucky enough to be born into the right family or have been given all the right opportunities in their lives. Cycads are like those people who were born into money with all sorts of opportunities at every turn: they’ve got a little bit more going on than most people!

Cycads also tend to last for many generations of people as well, so if you want something big and long-lasting, start collecting these beauties today!

Cycads are poisonous plants, so keep that in mind when planting them around pets and children.

Cycads are poisonous to pets and children, so it’s best to plant them in a location where they can be out of reach. If you have pets and kids, consider planting your cycad garden somewhere that is higher up or off the ground so that it’s out of their reach. Even if they aren’t poisonous to humans, eating any part of these plants could make your pet or child sick.

Cycads are not poisonous to humans (except for one species), but many people consider them toxic because they contain low levels of toxins called saponins. This is why we recommend keeping your garden away from areas where children play in order to avoid accidental ingestion by kids who may mistake the plants for something edible.

Cycads are a group of plants that look like palm trees but aren’t actually palms. These plants have been around for hundreds and hundreds of millions of years—some believe they were some of the first flora on earth. They’ve evolved to be able to live in very dry places with very little moisture available from the soil or air around them. Cycads also do not need much light: their leaves only catch enough sun energy from overhead rays so that their roots can grow deep into the ground where there is still plenty of water available for them to use over time without having direct access yet again just yet because these plants need time without exposure either way first before they reach any maturity (this is why cycad seeds take so long before sprouting). If left alone long enough (and some species have been known


Cycads are a great choice for any garden. They’re beautiful plants, and they come in a variety of different species that can be used in many different ways. If you want to add some shade-loving plants to your garden, then cycads are perfect for you!
