Description: Pachypodium brevicaule is the smallest and more strange species in the genus, with a remarkable rock-mimic caudex remembering a sack of potatoes with sparse leaves. It is truly a beautiful sight to see a large specimen covered with hundreds of bright yellow flowers. This is the one every Pachypodium lover should have.
Flowers: Bright yellow.
Blooming season: Summer.
Cultivation and propagation: They seem to be rot-prone under less than ideal conditions and care. Water sparingly and give extra well-drained soil to avoid waterlogged conditions.
The watering program will change depending on temperatures and stage of growth, but it is best not to let this plant dry out completely for any length of time. It is sensitive to cold and should be kept warm at all times. It tends to lose its leave and go dormant in winter when watering should be reduced to a minimum. It likes full sun.
