Pachypodium Brevicaule

17 reviews
  • Pachypodium brevicaule, which means "thick-foot, short-stem", has a grey caudex that resembles an elephant's trunk. It is one of the smaller species of the family. This plant is native to south-central Madagascar and can grow up to 12 inches (30 cm) in diameter. Its stem also looks like a blob (or a cow-pie) because it is compressed horizontally and doesn't reach over a few inches high.

    The tube-shaped bright yellow flowers are about 3 cm in diameter and bloom in the summer. Its leaves, which are about 2-4 cm long and 1-2 cm wide, form loosely compact rosettes.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Great and Happy plants!

Loved the Pachypodium Brevicaules I received … was hoping they were 2” as advertised but it turns out they were roughly 1” max.

Cute but super touchy

This plant came in absolute wonderful condition. I was super impressed with the packaging and care that was taken. Unfortunately, I think I loved it a little too much because it has since died. But I do not regret purchasing it. I think it was my lack of knowledge about this little cutie. If you think you know how to take care of it, I would definitely recommend getting this plant.
