    Zamia loddigesii , first photo of male cones. 2nd two photos are of female cones in the same group planting. Got viable seed last year from these plants. Must be real healthy producing female cones in sucessive years. Last year was the first getting female cones. :)

    Zamia fairchildiana , a cycad native to Costa Rica. Got this as a seedling last year. It is now budding its third leaf and the caudex has already increased to 1 inch in diameter. :) Zamia psuedomonticola should be considered a synonym of Zamia fairchildiana according to Loran Whitelock. ;)
