Description:

It is a rare succulent plant of a caudiciform shape. Its light gray trunk is covered with thorns, as well as with lanceolate leaves, sprouting from the apex. The foliage is dark green with a central strip of a creamy white color, the lower surface takes on purple shades. As P. cactipes grows, it tends to branch out, producing numerous short but thick branches. In winter, its canary yellow flowers bloom. In the period of vegetative rest it loses its leaves to grow them back, when it is in vegetation. This wonderful "Madagascar Palm" is ideal for adding a tropical touch to your gardens.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 12 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated locations during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. Once a week in spring and summer and once a month during autumn and winter.

A well-draining and porous soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
