Ceratozamia latifolia, cycad from Mexico and Central America
20121019-IMG_0534 Tropical Autumn, in reverse. The "autumn colors" on this plant are going from a glossy bronze to green as we head into Fall. Ceratozami Latifolia leaves beginning to show some hints of green as they mature to full size and start to lose the soft floppiness of new growth. They will eventually harden and turn as green as the older undergrowth from previous flushes.
