Pachypodium inopinatum was discovered in 1993 in a remote area of central Madagascar. Differences between this species and P. rosulatum, which also occurs on the island, are described.

More so, plants are highly succulent with a swollen, cylindrical, smooth, grey main stem to 35 cm tall and 25-40 cm in diameter and with up to ~250 leaf rosettes.

Also, the inflorescences have 2-5 flowers and these have an ivory-colored corolla and corolla lobes which are 20-22 mm long


For instance, there are two different ways to look at things :

Additionally, the first is to inspect the living conditions of the plant in its natural environment (Madagascar or Africa) and try to imitate them as much as possible at home. Unfortunately, this is often quite difficult, if not impossible.

For instance, for these who don’t live under the tropics or in similar conditions as in Madagascar and Africa it will not be possible to reproduce similar conditions except for some lucky few (like us at Le Jardin Naturel). So we will considere the second approach.


More so, the second method (the method that is presented on this page) is to maintain the Pachypodiums under the best possible conditions for their flourishing with the aim to give them a possible ‘natural’ phenomenon. Also, it is therefore necessary to know some basic parameters.

Further more, the success of their crops will depend on your understanding of the various stages in the annual cycle : When and how much should you pour that substrate, when repotting, when the dormancy, how much and what light the plant needs when, when you should prune the branches , etc. .. Further more, there are no absolute rules about the culture de Pachypodiums and you should rely on your intuition and pay attention to your experience during the years.
