Out of stock

Pachypodium rosulatum (price per 5 seeds)It is a shrubby perennial caudiciform plant with a bottle-shaped trunk, brownish silver and almost spineless, about 10–15 centimetres wide and about 20–35 centimetres tall. From the caudex depart many thorny cylindrical arms, forming a shrub about 1.5 metres tall. The leaves, which fall in the dry season, form a rosette on the top of branches. 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: October 2022
