Welcome to The Cycad Jungle. We have had our nursery since 1986,
but have changed our main focus as we find new and interesting
plants. We started as a wholesale woody ornamental nursery along
with having a landscape business. During this time we personally
installed between 1200 and 1400 landscapes. We have grown 275
species of palms and over 200 species of cycads. As the cycad
collection grew to the point that we couldn't landscape and take
care of the cycads at the same time, we became a full time cycad
nursery. Because we have been both collectors and landscapers,
we know the wants and needs of all our customers. We work with
our landscapers who sometimes may need help deciding what cycad
to use in a particular situation as they are designing a new project.
This is becoming more important to them as they are looking for
alternatives to cycas species because of the Asian scale destroying
the king and queen sagos. Most landscapers have just scratched
the surface as to what cycad species can be used, and we help
them make their projects more diversified and unique. We also
grow other cycads that collectors may be more interested in. We
want everyone to grow and propagate their cycads, so we have included
articles that we have written on every cycad cultivation subject
you can think of. Collectors can benefit from our first hand knowledge,
but our landscapers can also use this information, and pass it
on to their customers. After you read our articles and you still
have questions, we have included The Cycad Bulletin Board where
you can post your questions for us to answer. As we have found
a need for certain products that haven't existed in the general
market place, we have formulated our own fertilizers for cycads,
and make an enzyme available to help collectors clean their seeds.
We are happy to help all our customers with their individual cycad
needs, so feel free to contact us.

We have two sections for plants. Our price list shows mainly
cycads for the collectors. We now have our new section for landscape
plants. We carry cycads, palms, and other unusual exotics. We
have gingers available, as well as our new line of full sun, cold
hardy bromeliads (Dyckias). Our landscape section is still under
We are now certified for AZ, LA, and TX on all our 3, 7, 15,
25, and 45 gallon cycads, palms, gingers, and Dyckias.
*New* See new Dyckia pages in the landscape section!
We have a new feature that is linked to the price list. Click
the linked species for pages on the different genus. For people
who need cultural information on a particular species, we have
pictures of the plants, special cultural preferences, and descriptions
of size at maturity. We will be adding pages on other species,
so look for more information in the future.
We are now growing clivias of all colors. Clivias are in the
amaryllis family and produce large umbels of orange, yellow, red,
and apricot flowers. For more information on clivias, pictures
of clivia flowers, and plants available for sale click the link
We have our special cycad fertilizer finished and tested and
we are making it available to others. It is good for king sagos,
as well as other, more rare cycads. Because of the minors package,
it is also good for many landscaping plants. I have used it on
100 cycad species and 75 species of woody ornamentals. For people
who have already purchased some of this fertilizer, we have an
information section to expand on what is is printed on the label.
This will help with application rates, etc. We have other products
available to help you grow and propagate your cycads.
After reading all the articles, if you still have any cycad
questions, we have a bulletin board for you to post your questions.
Look through the bulletin board first, you may already see someone
else who had the same question.
