Cycads

Post by Oxalis » 26 Feb 2020, 06:49

Hello all!

Recently I was browsing the potted plants at the gardening store in the hopes of bringing spring here sooner. I started thinking about the cycad plants, which I call "dinosaur plants," and how they've changed little since the Jurassic. There are quite a few species of cycads (including the sago palm), which all belong to the order Cycadales; those are: Cycadaceae, Stangeriaceae, and Zamiaceae. The Wikipedia page mentions a neurotoxin in the seeds; but do you think the leaves OK for tortoises?
