Pachypodium lamerei, "Madagascar Palm"

$10 to $150

The Madagascar Palm (Pachypodium lamerei) is a distinctive succulent native to Madagascar. Despite its name, it's not a true palm but rather belongs to the Apocynaceae family. Its spiky, bottle-shaped trunk and tufted leaves are adapted to store water, enabling it to thrive in arid environments, making it a sought-after ornamental plant in various landscapes.

LIGHT Bright light, direct or indirect is best.

WATER Summer is the time to water heavily. Most species are deciduous and lose their leaves in winter. This is an indication to stop watering as much, if at all. 

FERTILIZER Fertilizer is not usually needed if one is going to repot their plants every 2-3 years. But otherwise a gentle liquid fertilising in summers is probably not a bad idea, and may promote flowering.

TEMPERATURE Keep above 60 degrees F. These plants are not cold tolerant.
