what is the best way to keep a chycad over the winter months please ive got all my other semi - tropical plants sorted .this did survive last winter with its frost but it didnt like it.its ok but it has some yellow parts to some leaves.all my others i tie up round the growing tip and they are floureshing.obviously this didnt work with my chycad so i coverd it in was its first winter in and it was quite a cold one.any advice would be brilliant thank you. ow and i have 2 predetory plants .the ones that hold water the name eludes me at the moment.when if even i should should i stop watering them . it sais on the label good for down to minus 20 degrees below freezing .again some advice would be great.also be nice to know if winter is the best time like most plants to repot these.thanx again




cycad generally require some protection during the cold wet months, but should the unfortunate death occur it is possible to begin new ones using the roots or certain parts of the body.
