  • Pachypodium namaquanum is a rare succulent plant. It is an usually single-stemmed, growing extremely slowly with stem up to 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter and up to 8.2 feet (2.5 m) tall.

    The stems are cylindrical, mostly unbranched, covered with warty tubercles from which sharp spines protrude in a slightly downward direction.

    The leaves form a crowded rosette at the apex of the trunk. They are simple, obovate to oblong, green-grey and densely velvety on both surfaces.

    The flowers are tubular, red on the inside and yellow-green outside, up to 2 inches (5 cm) long and up to 0.4 inch (1 cm) across at the mouth. The fruits are horn-like with twin pencil-thin tapering capsules of up to 2 inches (5 cm) long.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.
  • * We use 3.5 inch wide clay pots for 4" plant + clay pot option.

    *** 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.
