Some Cycas sp. in Australia.

An older one from a German botanical garden.

And a really big one from the beach of The Philippines.

   This member of the Cycadaceae family was described by Carl Peter Thunberg in 1782. It is found in Japan, growing in drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The caudex will slowly evolve to a 30 centimetre thick stem, 2,5 meters high. Both the male and the female cones are brown, and besides seeds it can be reproduced by offsets.

 

The two centimetre large nut.
