Named after the place it was discovered by some lazy-arse botanist this insanely cool plant is endemic to the Horombe Plateau in Madagascar. Unlike their cousin the Madagascar Palm that eventually form small trees with branching high on the stem these guys have a shrub like habit, producing multiple, chunky (that's a technical botany term btw) arms from their short fat stems. Like their cousin they're also super easy to care for, produce spikes along their branches and stems and produce a crown of glossy green leaves at the termination of each branch. When they mature they will produce clusters of broadly cup-shaped golden flowers through the summer.
Kind of like a fat little plant version of the monster from stranger things but less likely to try and destroy humanity!
Please note: in a temperate climate these plants lose their leaves in winter so if you're purchasing at this time you may receive a plant that is losing or has lost it's leaves - don't worry though, they still look super cool and are perfectly healthy!
Caring for your Pachypodium horembense
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.
