    A spectacular new and recently described cycad from Bocas del Toro, Panama, where it grows on a remote offshore Island on sandy soil very close to the coast. It forms a trunk to 2.8 m tall, topped by a a crown of up to 20 large leaves to 2.4 m (8 ft.) that hold up to 12 pairs of giant, elliptic, pleated (grooved) leaflets to nearly 40 cm (16 in.) long. The new leaves emerge bright green. Its leaflets are more numerous but slightly smaller than those of Z. skinneri and it is considerably larger in all aspects than Z. neurophyllidia. Understandably, is highly desired by cycad collectors. In cultivation it is easy and relatively fast growing and, especially when small, does best in sandy soil. Zamia nesophila is a wonderfully grooved leaf plant from Panama. It grows in islands in the Bocas del Toro region of Panama. The species name "nesophila", means "island-loving" in latin. Its large plicate (grooved) leaves, emerge light green, hardening off to a deep glossy green.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
