Encephalartos munchii is restricted to a single colony on the Zembe Mountain in Mozambique. This species occurs on rocky granite grassland slopes and hills intermixed in evergreen forest and brush. The climate is hot and wet, but can be cool and dry during the winter months.
It is a small plant, to 1.0m tall, and 35cm in diameter. Numerous soapy-green 1.0-1.3m leaves, with a very slight v cross-section. The young leaves have a distinctly blue colour.

Encephalartos munchii requires light shade/full sun in the cool tropics/sub-tropics. Their natural habitat has very hot, wet summers, and cool, dry winters. Seedlings are easy to establish, but mature plants have proved virtually impossible to transplant.”
