Dioon spinulosum Giant Dioon Cycad

Cycad Requirements

Giant Dioon Cycad prefers  full sun but an irrigation bubbler line will need to be installed with at least 1 good soaking per week during dry season. This dioon prefers alkaline to neutral, well-drained soils and full sun. It has a slight salt and cold tolerance but is happiest in warm soil with a little bit of limestones in its composition.

Cycad Description

The tallest member of its species, the Giant Dioon Cycad can tower at 40 feet overall, which it reaches at a moderate pace. Its petioles are toothed and slightly curved, a warm shade of green and rigid. Dioon spinulosum is a unique and low maintenance alternative to a shrub, in terms of size and placement.
