10 items to step up your Pachypodium game

Place your pre-order now!
24 November 2021 - 's-Gravenzande, the Netherlands

Club foot, Madagascar Palm, Elephant’s trunk….Pachypodium is a caudiciform succulent with many odd but stunning growth habits, resulting in these interesting common names. Although Pachypodium lamerei and P. geayi are fairly well-known and widely cultivated, the genus Pachypodium includes many more species and some of them are quite rare. As you may expect from Evanthia, we now have some true collector’s items to add that will definitely spice up your product range. Let’s take a closer look at these fascinating spiny succulents.

The exotic Pachypodium, native to Madagascar, is a true eye-catcher for gardens in arid-tropical areas. In other climate zones it makes for a great, easy care houseplant. The spiny, swollen trunks store water and the large roots absorb fast, making Pachypodium less needy that other types of houseplants. Caudex-loving households, trendy plant parents and succulent collectors worldwide go crazy for their unusual looks.
