What’s New

Version 1.04

- Fixed an issue where the wrong species was sometimes displayed when navigating to the plant (vegetative features) via the cones list
- Correct a price typo of one of the E. ghellinckii (mountain) price size bins (a result of 2018 prices having been processed and incorporated recently)

South African Cycad

It’s a very good app to help ID South Africa cycad with cones detail. I do wish it would also have close up leaflets details of various forms and hopefully it would expand to all cycad of Africa.
