      Attached below is a picture of a plant I have which i think is called Cycas revoluta. (If i am wrong pls tell me). As you can see in the picture, new leaves are emerging in the centre. I took that picture several months ago. Due to the heat( tropical climate), the edges of the new leaves sort of got dried up and as they grew, they looked quite ugly. Also, my plant is beginning to turn yellow in certain parts.

      Do you know what I can do to prevent the new leaves from drying up at the edges?

      I thought that’s something common, i mean almost every single plant in my garden has got leaves that are dried up at the edges 🙁 ….but now as you say it, i’m beginning to think that it’s because of the all-year-round tropical climate 🙁

      PS: that’s a nice plant you’ve got there 😀
      By the way, what’s that white bundle doing up there?

      Ah yes, i forgot to mention what that bundle was.(thanks opuntia) It is actually pesticide. You see another problem is that caterpillars eat up the new leaves and so to prevent that I have to put that pesticide.

      Sometimes when the new leaves grow, all of it completely dries up and dies because of the hot weather. Thats the extreme problem I face.

      My Cycas revoluta grew a new set of leaves and the process was extremely beautiful. I would like to share it with all of you. Here are the pictures:

      Your plant has the common name of KIng Sago. Now there is a Queen Sago also. Anyone would like to see a picture?

      Just before my Cycas revoluta began to sprout a set of new leaves, the butterflies started coming and began laying eggs. Isn’t it amazing that the butterflies know that new leaves are coming out before there is any visible evidence. Can anyone explain this phenomenon?

      Navin, your plant looks so nice. I’m thinking of taking that plant from Navin’s garden to my garden 😈 , Just don’t let Navin know that i’m planning this 😉

      May be the butterflies have some kind of built in "new leaves are coming out" detecting systems 😉

      Hi opuntia, so i guess i ought not be suprised if one day if i see that my plant has disappeared! 😆

      So anyway, yes maybe the butterfly has a special way of detecting. I also think that maybe the plant releases a kind of scent that only the butterflies can detect. What do you guys think of that?
