    • Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Dioon spinulosum derives its name from Latin, meaning spiny. It has shiny, stiff, bright green leaves that grow in an upright manner. It is the largest American cycad, growing up to 50 ft tall in habitat.
    • In a garden this plant will typically grow to 5-12 feet with a 6 foot leaf spread and a 12+ inch diameter trunk. Its pinnate (feather-shaped) leaves are 5-7 ft long and extend radially out from the trunk with 150-250 leaflets on each leaf.
    • These leaflets are flat, with small marginal thorns tapering to a sharp point.
    • In habitat, Dioon spinulosum grows in rocky, limestone evergreen forests in the states of Veracruz, Oaxaca, and Yucatan in Mexico at up to 1500 feet above sea level. This plant is fast growing for a cycad and may be the most popular Dioon. It prefers a subtropical or tropical climate, and partial shade or filtered sun.
    • Dioon spinulosum can work as an indoor plant in a brightly lit spot, or in a conservatory or greenhouse. It adds an exotic but formal touch in any garden in warm temperate to tropical climates. It can be an excellent feature plant in a tropical or desert landscape, often substituting for a true palm where a large crown is desired without a tall trunk.

    "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."
