Recently Shipped Pachypodium lamerei, Madagascar Palm


Not a Palm, But a Succulent from a Far-Flung Island

Unique and exotic, like the island nation it comes from, the Madagascar Palm is a succulent that does indeed resemble like a palm. Use care when deciding where to plant, as the Madagascar’s spines are extremely sharp. Ideal locations are away from walkways, kids and pets.

The top of the Madagascar blooms with white flowers in the summer. After blooming, new heads may form and cause the plant to branch out. Many Madagascars develop a swollen trunk over time, adding to the succulent’s unusual appearance. A moderate grower, the plant can reach up to 10 ft. outdoors. It prefers full sun, minimal water and sandy soil. And, it’s moderately cold and salt tolerant. Indoors, make sure to place the Madagascar in maximum light, by a south or west facing window.

    I returned to Plantvine because I received an email ad and decided to take a look. I see my comments below with a reply from Haley. My plant never recovered. It died. I have pics if you’d like to see it. I was and am devastated. I’d like to try again, what can you offer me?

    It took a bit to ship my little madagascar, but once it shipped it got here super quick and was exactly as pictured! No shock from the shipping/losing leafs or wilting, it looked perfect and was packaged very well and carefully.

    I have a Madagascar Palm that I am sure is at least 16 years old.Outside in the summer, and indoors in the winter. It is 8 feet tall and has bloomed white flowers the last 3 years! It is my pride and joy!

    My Madagascar Palm all of a sudden lost all of its leaves.
    What could be the reason for this? Any advice welcome.
