It grows in open forests, in a well drained soil with some water and some to a lots of sun. The caudex-like stem will get 10 centimetres in diameter and 30 centimetres high. The leaves up to one meter. Both male and female cone are brown. As fare as I know, it can only be reproduced by it's red seeds.
