Flushing Cycads

Cycads are very slow growers compared to other plants. My Encephalartos caffer hasn't produce a single leaf in almost two years. The gardener's patience is almost always severely tested. But some guys get lucky like the guy writing this post . The onset of the rainy season must have triggered something in my garden. Look at these cycads, zamias, cycas and dioons, all flushing at the same time.
