CYCADS THAT I AM GROWING OUTDOORS

Most of my cycads were grown from seed or purchased as small seedlings and planted mostly as one gallon plants. Some are faster than others but most seem to grow allot faster in the ground than in pots. The one exception I have found is Lepidozamia peroffskyana grows much faster in pots than in the ground for me. Most have been outside or in the ground for at least four years and have not had any problems with cold except with Cycas sp"blue thai" and Cycas Thouarsii with some spotting after a cold rain.  

I also grow many ferns, Platyceriums (staghorns) grow well for me and add a really dramatic air to any garden. I am growing the following ferns outside without any major problems.
