Common Name: Madagascar Palm, Pachy Palm, Madagascan Palm, Dieting Pineapple
Availabilty: In Stock
The Madagascar Palm is deceitfully named, as it isn't a palm, but a succulent. This long living succulent has an attractive shiny silver trunk, covered in long, sharp spins and a tuft of palm like leaves (which leads to the confusion about this handsome fella). When outdoors, clusters of beautiful frangipani-like, fragrant creamy-white flowers will bloom in warmer months once mature, although this rarely happens when kept indoors as the flowers require sunlight.
A striking spectacle outdoors, or very forgiving houseplant, he's low maintenance and thrives in dry environments. Water this semi-succulent more liberally in summer and rarely in winter. This sun-loving indoor plant reaches around 1.8 metres when indoors, but much taller outdoors. Comfortable in high temperatures outside, but sensitive to frost, we recommend bringing outdoors if in extremely cold climates. Toxic to people and pets, but covered in sharp spines as a highly effective deterrent..
If you like quirky indoor plants that could fit in a Dr Suess book... meet your perfect match!
