    Same question as above. We recently moved into a new home and there are quite a few of these in the garden. That all look to be about the same minus one which has red seeds/bulbs at the bottom. Any idea what they might be..?

    Those look like sago palms (cycas revoluta). Its not indigenous.

    I believe one has to have a permit for indigenous cycads.

    I bought a few from the KNP nursery and they came with a permit as well.

    Mine of the cycas variety grow much quicker than the indigenous ones, don't know why, same place, same water regime, they just don't seem to grow as quickly.

    Yes,Revolutas not as valuable as our own species.

    The term "sago palm" refers to how it was used in a traditionally.

    Yeah those Sago Palms are pretty, but quite cheap. I have a bunch at home. Got one that someone tossed out a few years ago, stuck it in a pot, then it shot up babies. Shortly after the dogs chewed it down to the stem only, and then it sprouted again. Dogs repeated the process. It's only now recovering. The babies it stuck out I planted out, and all of them where ruined by the dogs. I almost gave up on them and just tossed them in their pots into a back corner of the yard, and the other day I saw one bulb survived and it's got a nice new leaf coming up. So yay.

    Thanks for the input! Yes they're really nice all around the house. Lots of them have small ones at the bottom.

    On a different note. I have 4 different plants. They were there when we bought the house. Is there someone in Centurion I can contact to tell me what they are and sort out permits?

    If you post photos of the plants, and of the leaf structure, Iím sure someone here would be able to ID them.

    You can get the permit application form here (province specific): http://cycadfriends.co.za/site/legis.../permit-forms/

    Local enthusiasts/growers would also be able to help ID. There are a couple of growers in Centurion.

    Also have a look here: http://www.cycadsociety.org/
