Cycads date back millions of years when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. They take many years to grow the great stems you see when browsing through the Cycad section at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, for example. These prehistoric treasures are considered of great value and are protected. One is therefore required to apply for a permit from Cape Nature to transport them and to take ownership of them, It is completely illegal to remove cycads from their natural habitat and a stiff fine is issued if caught. Due to their value it is not suprising that they are priced accordingly. Different species are priced differently according to their scarcity and growth rate. Should you require any info or pricing of these exceptional plants, please feel free to contact us.
