Plant Species of the genus Bowenia

Information about this genus
Name: Bowenia
Cultivation: CULTIVATION: These cycads prefer wet tropical conditions and revel in the dripping humidity of the rainforest. In temperate climates they require a heated greenhouse and do not readily adapt to normal indoor conditions and cultivation as house plants. Propagation is from seed or by dividing the rootstock.
Description: This genus is composed of 2 very similar species of cycads native to the rainforests of coastal northern Queensland, Australia. They have vigorous underground tubers and do not produce a trunk, instead sending up their branched fern-like ?fronds? directly from the ground. The separate male and female cones also form at ground level and occur through much of the year.
