While various species of Cycads can be found throughout the world, the subtropical Cycus revoluta is native to the Far East and has been used as a choice container and landscape plant for centuries. Regardless of age or size, Cycas revoluta is one of the easiest plant to grow, indoors or outdoors, by beginner or expert. It accepts full sun or bright interior light, thrives with attention, and tolerates neglect. A 220 year old specimen of Encephalartos, a relative of Cycas revoluta, is on display at the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew England.
