Encephalartos Ferox - 25 cm C.D.

EmailButton
Cultivation of E. ferox is quite simple. Provided with well-drained soil, sufficient fertilizer, and a bit of heat, it is one of the most rapidly growing cycads.
Description
 
Encephalartos Ferox 3    Encephalartos%20ferox%20Fact%20Sheet
 
E. ferox is one of the most attractive and widely grown of the African cycads. It requires excellent drainage and does particularly well in deep sandy soil. It commonly grows in some shade, however in cultivation plants grown in full sun grow much faster than those grown in shade. However, if a position can be found where E. ferox gets 3 or 4 hours of sun a day, and part shade, the foliage is often more attractive. This cycad is one of the best species for the home garden. 
 
 
E. ferox grows well in frost-free areas and enjoys plenty of heat and water, consistent with its conditions in habitat. One of the fastest growing of all cycads, it can cone within 12 years from the time of seed germination. Plants prefer shady conditions with well-drained soil and respond positively to both inorganic and organic fertiliser applications. Whilst this species will serve well as a container plant, it is used to best advantage as a landscaping feature plant where its luxuriant foliage contributes dramatically to a tropical impression. Groupings of several plants compound this effect and of course increase the possibility of eventual seed production.
