Madagascar Palm + Satin Matte Squat Pot
Endemic to the spiny forests of Madagascar, these super easy to care for spiky succulents have a crown of glossy green leaves. When they mature they will produce clusters of beautifully fragrant Frangipani-like flowers through the summer.
Through the warmer months (whilst it has leaves) water as you would most indoor plants - when the 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out. In the cooler months water very little or not at all.
Loves bright direct light so near a westerly or south facing window or balcony is great.
These guys are currently about 20cm tall but over time will grow into a beautifully sculptural small tree with a bulbous pachycaudal (water holding) stem.
Madagascar Palm Care Guide
A bit about the pot
The Saturn is a cosmic delight with overlapping layers of glaze like the rings of Saturn and brown flecks like the surrounding asteroid field. Handmade by master ceramicist, Mark Gambino. The cosmic colours of this beautiful pot pair perfectly with almost alien shape of the Madagascar Palm.
A bit about the ceramicist
This piece was made by master potter Mark Gambino. Mark was introduced to pottery in primary school at the age of 10. He loved the feel of clay and being able to create from the earth. After a short session at school he begged his parents to enrol him in a pottery school. Mark now has over 40 years experience and has made pottery for David Jones and Country Road.
In 2017 Mark opened his own studio where he teaches and thankfully continues to make pottery. He's still passionate about his craft, always trying to better his work. In recent years making his own glazes and experimenting with new colours and effects has become a bit of an obsession for Mark.
How will I receive my new pot
Your Madagascar Palm will arrived packaged with the Saturn planter in our unique 100% recyclable packaging system designed to support a fully potted plant and its new ceramic home. Your Madagascar Palm will come in a 1.5L plastic nursery pot that fits perfectly inside the planter. As the Saturn doesn't have a drainage hole this allows you to take your Madagascar Palm out to water.

Caring for your Madagascar Palm + Satin Matte Squat Pot
Our special eco packaging
No Plant Stress
Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.
The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!
Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.
The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
Please note, due to quarantine restrictions on plants and soil, we are not able to deliver plants to WA, NT and TAS.
