Fresh growth by NaturalCultural


Available to buy on…

The new growth of a Cycad emerges from a ball of tight coils. Soft and malleable as new growth the leaves will roll out and become the polar opposite, stiff with sharp points and very tough. The fresh growth is favoured by the Cycad butterfly with the toughened leaves left alone.
