Here is my Cycas revoluta with its second flush of the season in early July. I showed the first flush in April earlier.

Thanks, Ddve. My C. revoluta is the biggest around here. I never have fertilized or anything. Anyway, I am proud of it. It gains several inches of trunk annually. Do you grow this cycad? I had a Cycas taitungensis at my old place. They form a nice trunk about as fast or faster than revoluta. At least it did for me. I wish I had brought it here, but I moved in July and it was so hot and dry, i worried I would kill it. I had rather leave it and let someone else enjoy it than kill it. The new owners did love it. That let me know it would remain there.
