Post Encephalartos poggei.......cold hardy???
Acquired this encephalartos from Josef and maybe I shocked him by telling that I wanted to plant it rightaway (sorry Josef)

Quite a big caudex it was with new roots and the emergent leaf bulge looked promising

So in it went on 14/11/ 2016

Another pic on the same day

Weather was fine with occasional rain and daily temp range 7/15 ºC
3 weeks later

4 weeks later

5 months later

Life is good here in the sunny Algarve

37º 04' 16 71" N
8º 50' 13 59" W

Cycads do things following trauma. Flush when good times return. Congrats Charles on one of the rarer cycads.
