An app about cycads that are indigenous to South Africa.
- Easy ID: identify cycads by following a step-by-step ID key, and make use of the illustrated terminology along the way.
- Price info: view the value of the various species, based on plant size.
- Make use of the Price Slider. Perfect to get a quick price estimation at those fast paced sales/auctions.
- Quality photos: 700+ zoomable photos and images of the plant's general appearance, vegetative characteristics and cones - both male and female!
- View information such as the IUCN Red List status and growing conditions per species.
- Navigate the app with ease, to make your love of cycads even more enjoyable.
- 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)
Ratings and Reviews
Very useful to have the guide so easily available on your phone. User friendly too. Well done!
I have been looking for an app like this one. Great app! Thanks.
Stolen Material 😠
I did not allow you to use pictures of my plants on this app!!! You came they were taken by ___, but ONLY Cornia Hugo (from “Cycads of SA) were in my garden and took the only “commercial” photographers of my plants.😡
PLEASE REMOVE HER PICTURE, FOR MY PLANTS SAFETY 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Developer Response ,
I am surprised by this comment as I tried to be very diligent regarding permissible use of photos in the app. There are over 700 photos in the app, and maybe one slipped through. If so, I apologise and will remove any and all photos of plants from the app that are of your plant(s) and for which I do not have permission. Please send me the details (i.e. which species/which photo(s) you are referring to) to the support email address on the app’s web page:
* Two weeks later. Still waiting for a response.
* Three months later. Still no response. I have in the meantime revisited all photos and am unable to locate one that does not have permission for use in this app.
