We are a reputed manufacturer, exporter, importer and supplier of an entire range of Cycad Plants from Kolkata, West Bengal, India. Cycads are plants, which grow from seeds and typically take a long time to grow into a full fledged tree and they also have a long life. We offer some of the most popular cycads from across the globe, which can be acclimatised to the region they are being planted in. We can offer tropical cycad plants from Africa and Madagascar to South East Asia, Mediterranean Cycads from Europe, Continental Cycad Plants from America and Mexico and also some xerophytes that will grow in semi-desert conditions.
Cycads are seed plants typically characterized by a stout and woody (ligneous) trunk with a crown of large, hard and stiff, evergreen leaves. They usually have pinnate leaves. The individual plants are either all male or all female (dioecious). Cycads vary in size from having trunks from only a few centimeters to several meters tall. They typically grow very slowly and live very long, with some specimens known to be as much as 1,000 years old. Because of their superficial resemblance, they are sometimes confused with and mistaken for palms or ferns, but are only distantly related to either.
Cycads are found across much of the subtropical and tropical parts of the world. They are found in South and Central America (where the greatest diversity occurs), Mexico, the Antilles, southeastern United States, Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia, Japan, China, Southeast Asia, India, Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and southern and tropical Africa, where at least 65 species occur. Some can survive in harsh semidesert climates (xerophytic), others in wet rain forest conditions, and some in both. Some can grow in sand or even on rock, some in oxygen-poor, swampy, bog-like soils rich in organic material, and some in both. Some are able to grow in full sun, some in full shade, and some in both. Some are salt tolerant (halophytes).
