Friday Frankencycad

A hybrid today. Encephalartos villosus x umbeluziensis. I've no idea what the history of origin of this young hybrid at Kew is. Unlike the other hybrid I've featured there is no real reason to hybridise these two beyond availability of pollen and aesthetic curiosity.

I can tell you it is a male though....
