Another Pachypodium in Bloom
Now this one is special.
Pachypodium rosulatum var. drakei is much skinier and taller than the standard P. rosulatum, although it will also get a large 12″ +/- caudex too. It’s from Drake. Actually it’s from Madagascar like so many of the best Pachypodiums. We don’t like to let these get below 45F in the winter, and if they lose their leaves, which they can, then water no more than every 6 weeks. During the hot growth periods we drench them every 1-2 weeks.
