Pachypodium lameri is a native of Southern Madagascar. The Madagascar Palm is not really a palm. It is actually a succulent related to Plumerias. The plant grows fairly quickly and can attain a height of three or four feet in just a few years. Pachypodiums are great for begginers. In time, the stem of Pachypodium lameri elongates dramatically and, in a few years, it forms a vertical trunk. The leaves form only at the top of the trunk, like a Palm Tree. Its flowers are pure white with a deep yellow center and look very much like Plumeria Rubra. Pachypodiums are related to Frangipanis, both plants belong to the Apocynaceae family. The flowers are 2-3 inches in diameter. Pachypodium lamerei needs full sun to light shade with warm temperatures. Water sparingly. The Pachypodium tends to lose its leave and go dormant in Winter. It then needs very little water. Use a potting mix consisting of 2 parts sand to 1 part peat moss to 1 part loam with small gravel added for increased drainage.
