'Madagascar Palm'

Pachypodium lamerei

Native to the island of Madagascar, this little sunworshipper isn't truly a 'palm', having more in common with a cactus (beware those spikes...), but it's a great tropical crossover for those sunnier spots!

Whilst these can reach up to 6 metres in height in their native habitat, they are a slow growing houseplant and will usually max out at between 1 and 2 metres in the home.

Why Hutch selects me

Like the ultimate tropical cactus crossover, the Pachypodium looks somewhat like a cross between a Euphorbia and a Kentia Palm; definitely one of the more unusual and easy care options to add to your collection and great if you're looking for a leafy option for those sunny spots!

How to look after me

Watering: When the soil has thoroughly dried out - approximately once a week in the summer and once every 4 weeks in the winter

Light: Full or at least some sun - ideal for a windowsill

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next.
