This is an attractive small cycad and one of the most common cycads in the nursery trade. Unfortunately it is usually misidentified as Zamia fishceri, which is a much rarer plant. This plant has papery thin, wide leaflets with very small indentations or teeth on the leaflets. The petioles have small spines. This is a very adaptable and robust grower, handling low light situations, some coastal sun, all sorts of soils and watering schemes and even does well as an indoor plant. From Mexico.
