In my backyard is a Lepidozamia peroffskyana. It is now about 25 years since planting.
If there has been normal rain in and before December the plant grows a new crown. Usually of five fronds and takes over two weeks for the fronds grow fully In dry years there is no sign of a fresh crown. The old fronds are, at the time of writing, slightly longer than two metres. The plant base is about 33cm high and 25 cm diameter.

faint white mist, assumed to be male spores .
