R60.00R350.00

Pachypodium horombense.  It is a succulent shrublet about 1.5 m high with a plump, bottle-shaped, main stem surmounted by a number of short, spiny fat arms each bearing a rosette of leaves and a single long-peduncled inflorescence that carries 3-10, broadly cup-shaped, horizontal, gold flowers during the warm months of the year. 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: Ex Hort. Harvest: January 2024
