One-Of-A-Kind Cardboard Palm

The Cardboard Palm is a cycad, an ancient plant species that predates flowering plants and has been around since the time of dinosaurs. It is native to Mexico and has stiff, leathery fronds that resemble a cross between a palm and a fern, giving it the common name "Cardboard Palm".

Some key characteristics of a Cardboard Palm bonsai include:

  • Compact size, typically 1-2 feet tall
  • Thick, rough, and rounded trunk base
  • Stiff, leathery fronds resembling palm leaves
  • Slow growth rate, making it suitable for bonsai training

Care and Maintenance:

  • Bright, indirect light or partial sun exposure
  • Well-draining soil mix, such as a succulent or cactus mix
  • Infrequent watering, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings
  • Humidity levels around 40-50%
  • Occasional pruning and wiring to maintain shape

Cardboard Palms are generally hardy and resistant to pests and diseases, making them a good choice for bonsai enthusiasts. With proper care and training, a Cardboard Palm bonsai can live for many years and provide a unique, prehistoric-looking addition to a bonsai collection.
