You'll receive this Cycad exactly as shown. This is a finely detailed reproduction of the plant. Note the mature trunk, the remnants of older fronds that have been removed, and then its current leaves and new one at the center. The lightweight planter it comes in has a simple, tapered shape and a beautiful finish that resembles terrazzo with specs of light to pale gray mixed throughout. With its palm-like leaves and unique look, this faux Cycad is an excellent choice for a green accent in a home, as well as display use from store windows to building lobbies, or as part of your tropical themed decor at weddings and events with other artificial palms and tropical plants.
