Scientific Name: Dioon Edule "Queretaro Blue"

Common Name: Chestnut Dioon

Description: Dioon Edule "Queretaro Blue", also called ‘Chestnut Dioon’ is a cycad, which are some of the oldest known seed plants in the world. The stiff, upright foliage emerges from a spikey cone and ranges in color from blue green to bright green. An extremely low-maintenance plant, on the verge of becoming endangered can be kept as an unusual house plant or an outdoor attraction.

Care: Dioon Edule will tolerate full sun in cooler climates but it prefers partial shade, especially in hotter zones. If kept indoors it should receive bright indirect light. A moderate amount of water to keep the soil moist is best. The plant will slowly become drought tolerant as it ages. Reduce watering in winter slightly, but prevent the soil from totally drying out. Good airflow in more humid conditions will reduce the chances of fungal issues.

NOTE: The item pictured is similar to the plant you will receive. Plants are unique; the shape, color and number of leaves may sometimes vary. "XL" denotes plants that are over 12 inches tall. Contact if you have any questions.
