Ceratozamia euryphyllidia is regarded as the holy grail of cycad collecting for people with a potted collection. Plants or seeds have never been collected to introduce to horticulture with very few exceptions. Those few that have been put into cultivation have been kept private. The original population was discovered in Veracruz, Mexico by Mario Vazquez Torres, but a foreign collector destroyed every plant. Luckily, a second population was found just inside Oaxaca.
