Get your crocs on and let's head out to inspect the garden....... glistening from the raindrops that have just fallen.
Here is my Cardboard Palm (Zamia furfuracea).
Many of my plant buddies know that I love and collect palms.
The cardboard palm is really a cycad, and not really a palm at all, but its growth habit is similar to a palm, hence the name. The leaves are hard like cardboard, and it grows best in moist well-drained soil in either full sun or shade.
It's also very poisonous, so much so, that no antidote for the poison has been found.
My Cardboard palm has a visitor.
Can you see it? Don't be alarmed, this is a native tree snail (Orthalicus undulatus), one of the good snails.....does no damage at all. Just minds its own business, crawling over and under everything.
Carry on smartly Mr. Snail, and a top of the morning to you!!
