Demand for Cycas revoluta has consistently remained strong over the decades while some other garden plants have gained and then lost popularity. The new leaf flush of a large revoluta still inspires gardeners with its distinctly prehistoric look.

One problem facing propagation nurseries has been the sourcing of fresh revoluta seed. We remedied this by planting a number of mature male and female plants which are hand pollinated each flowering season to provide us with consistent quantities of fresh seed which are then germinated in controlled temperature hot rooms.
