Cycas or also named peace palm is easy to maintain.

Place your Cycas in half-shadow, on a light spot, although not in the direct light from the midday sun. 

Watering Instructions
Depending on rainfall, new plants need to be watered weekly through the first growing season. During hot spells
thoroughly soaking the ground up to 8” (20 cm) every few days is better than watering a little bit daily. 

Plants in containers can dry out quickly, depending on the weather, and may need water more frequently than
plants in the garden bed. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants
are wilted, it is time to water.

Apply water at the soil level if possible to avoid wetting the foliage. Water the entire soil area until water runs out
the base of the pot. This indicates that the soil is thoroughly wet.

Deep watering encourages roots to grow further into the ground resulting in a sturdier plant with more drought tolerance.

To check for soil moisture use your finger or a hand trowel to dig a small hole and examine the soil.
If the first 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, it is time to water.

Fertilizing Instructions
Fertilizers are available in many forms: granulated, slow-release, liquid feeds, organic or synthetic. Determine which
application method is best for the situation and select a product with a nutritional balance designed to encourage
blooming (such as 5-10-5). 

Too much fertilizer can damage plants so it’s important to follow the package directions to determine how much,
and how often, to feed plants.

Slow-release fertilizers are an especially good, care-free choice for container plants. A single application can often
provide plants with the proper level of nutrition all season long.

Pruning Instructions
Pruning may be needed to remove dead branches, encourage bushier growth, promote more flowers, or maintain
a specific size or shape.

Most container plants can be pruned freely to maintain the desired size and shape. Keeping the foliage trimmed
also keeps the plants looking neat and tidy, encourages the plant to develop more side-shoots and flowers, and
reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system. This is important since the roots are in a
confined space.

Many shrubs can be regularly sheared to keep them shaped as a hedge, edging or formal foundation planting.

When pruning to control a plant's size or shape, cuts should be made just above a leaf bud and at a slight angle.
This bud will be where the new growth sprouts. 

Remove old flowers to keep plant looking healthy and prevent seed production that drains the plant's energy at
the expense of forming new flowers.

Always use sharp, clean tools when pruning. There are many tools available depending on the job. Hand shears,
pruners, and loppers are ideal for most shrubs. Pole pruners and tree saws are better for large, mature shrubs or
trees. If a tree is so large that it can't be safely pruned with a pole pruner, it is best to call in a professional tree service.

The potsize is 17 cm, the height of the plant is 55 cm.
