Pachypodium brevicaule leucoxanthum


Pachypodium brevicaule leucoxanthum. A very rare, tiny succulent dwarf shrub known only from a small location on the Mania river on the central plateau in southern central Madagascar. It sports thick, very short, sparsely spiny and profusely branching shoots, each of which holds a small tuft of oval leaves. The trumpet-shaped flowers are white and held on short stalks. Sowing : It is easily propagated from ripe seeds, sown in a normal nursery tray, using a well-drained seed-sowing compost and silica sand mixture (silica sand improves drainage) kept moist and at a temperature of approximately 22ºC. The seeds need some degree of humidity for successful germination. One can generally expect seeds to germinate within 3 – 4 weeks (one month). Locality: Langobaya. Harvest: August 2023
