Abstract

We grow Zamia pumila L. (Zamiaceae), the only cycad occurring north of Mexico, using a low-tech but effective system. After collecting seeds from cones during winter, we simply scatter seeds onto outdoor germination beds composed of growing medium recycled from our container operation. After the first and second year of field bed germination, emergents are transplanted into containers. Finished container stock takes 3 to 5 y depending on desired size.
