Pachypodium lamerei (100 seeds)


3 in stock

Pachypodium lamerei. It is a very attractive spiny semidecidous or deciduous semitropical succulent stemmed tree, 2,5-6 m tall, or more with optimal conditions. (As a houseplant, it is much smaller) In cultivation it is often marketed as the “Madagascar Palm”, despite in not being a palm at all. The Pachypodium tends to lose its leave and go dormant in winter in temperate climate areas. 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: December 2023
