- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. This species is endemic to southern Malawi and Mozambique. Between the two localities, habitat can vary significantly. Plants grow on wet forests and ravines into open savanna.
- Encephalartos gratus is a medium sized cycad. Leaves can grow in excess of two to two and a half meters, depending on exposure. Stems are fat and can reach heights of three meters over a very long time. This species can produce basal suckers, but does so sparingly.
- This species has many favorable characteristics. It is fast growing, has a very tropical crown of leaves and is very showy! Leaflets and petioles are armed, but the spines are fairly flexible and soft. This cycad is similar in appearance to other Central African varieties, such as E. hildebrandtii, but is easier to grow than many of them.
- In coastal areas, this species does well in sun or partial sun. For inland areas partial sun or filtered light is better. In desert areas, this species need filtered light or shade. This species is water tolerant and likes a good draining top soil. They can tolerate going dry (as the do in the savanna), but they will not maintain full crowns.
- This plant is a great show stopper! I makes a large trunk and crown of leaves which are impressive to see, consequently it will need some room. It should be set in a location for optimum viewing as it will greatly enhance the beauty of your garden.

"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."
