Central American Cycads Flushing New Growth Please visit us a: Here's a short video on some of the Central American cycad species throwing new leaves in my collection.

World oldest potted plant- Kew Gardens. This huge Jurassic Cyclad botanically called 'Encephalartos altensteninii' which grows at 2.5cm a year, was first installed at Kew in 1775 and has outgrown several pots, it was planted in the most recent 25 years ago. It has another 250 years of life left in it and might have to un dergo further "Pot Re-plantation" within the "Palm House" of Kew Gardens where it has been growing. It has another 250 years of life left and is a "Ripley's Believe It". The ancient cycad was collected in the early 1770s from the Eastern Cape in South Africa by Kew's first plant hunter, Frances Masson. It was one of 500 species gathered for the botanical gardens during Captain Cook's second voyage around the globe. Honestly, i am no fan of "Botanical Study's" just a "Balcony Gardner", but, a visit to Kews gardens is advised to any 'Package tour or backpacker tour" tourist, just, to witness this amazing tree and the basic concept of growing different types of vegetation under "Controlled artificial climatic conditions".:-Blogger/Backpacker Rudolph.A.Furtado(Saturday 29-5-2010 at Kew Gardens in London) z
Alocasia and Cycads ( 不喰芋と蘇鉄 ) Explanation of the Expression "Alocasia and Cycads" Picture of Tanaka Isson. Tanaka Isson ( 22 July 1908 - 11 September 1977 ) was the pseudonym of a Japanese Nihonga painter from the Showa period noted for his flower-and-bird paintings of the Amami Islands. His real name was Tanaka Takashi. Isson was born in what is now Tochigi City, Tochigi Prefecture, as the son of a local sculptor. Interested in art at an early age, he won his first award for a watercolor painting at the age of 7. In 1926, he enrolled in the Tokyo Bijutsu Gakko (the predecessor to the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music), where he specialized in Nihonga painting, but left after a few months without graduating due to his father's illness and lack of funds. From 1938, he lived at various locations in Chiba prefecture, and although his future initially seemed promising, his isolation from the mainstream art circles meant that he had difficulty in establishing a name. He was forced to work at numerous odd jobs to stay alive, while attempting to paint on the side. In the years of World War II, he endured illness and poverty. It was only in 1947, in an exhibition sponsored by Kawabata Ryushi, that his name became known to the art world. In 1958, at the age of 50, he decided to relocate to Amami Ōshima, where he found employment at a silk factory, earning just enough for a frugal life. He continued to paint, using the nature of Amami Oshima for inspiration, and his output through the 1960s and ...

Enjoy and please visit the link above for more about cycads and plants in general.
