Q.Zamia cardboard palm

Zone San Diego, CA 92129, pne 10 I think. Thanks. | Anonymous added on November 15, 2017 | Answered

Recently planted a zamia that has a 4″ cone. The cone is wilting but the rest of the plant looks fine. Anything to be concerned with? Should the cone be pruned? Thanks.

The cone is probably just finished and is naturally wilting, so you could leave it until it comes off naturally. You can optionally prune the cone off. If you do, it may be best to dust the cut area with a fungicide to prevent anything from getting into the wound.
