Ceratozamia Latifolia

HabitatThe Cycads

Steep limestone hillsides and canyons at elevations of about 500m (1600 ft) under dense wet forest. Rainfall averages 1260 mm (50 in) annually, falling mainly in summer but frequent throughout the year.

Distribution

Mexico, San Louis potosi state, vicinity of Xilitla and Tamazunchale. C. latifolia must be one of the commonest species of Ceratozamia in cultivation. Its medium size, ready availability, and interesting leaves have made it a popular pot plant in conservatories, and a garden plant in areas where weather conditions allow its use outdoors. It does well in areas of low light and can used successfully as a houseplant if kept out of heavy-traffic areas that might cause damage to the somewhat brittle leaflets.

The habitat of Ceratozamia latifolia is mountainous and steep. This species grows in an almost constantly wet forest area. Rain and mist are frequent even in the drier winter months. The area is composed predominantly of limestone; some of which has been weathered into strange-looking spires covered with a lust growth of ferns, philodendrons, and other tropical plants. Ceratozamia latifolia can be found growing in cracks in the limestone, or in small pockets that the constant leaf debris has filled with humus.
