Pachypodium Gracilis

Tiffany Cornell . Tuesday, October 01, 2019 . Comments
Pachypodium Gracilis
  • A compact, caudex plant from Madagascar growing to 30cm high 
  • It flowers in 1 year with bright yellow flowers and sometimes flowers twice a year
  • The plant looses most of its leaves in the cooler months - but do not panic, they will grow back.
  • Water well during the hottest months but keep almost dry in the cooler months.
  • Best grown in a sunny position sheltered from the wind.
  • Keep in bowls or pots and containers to control water needs.
  • Drought Tolerant.
