Pachypodium rosulatum, also known as "Elephant's foot plant", is a very slow growing, shrub-shaped, caudiciform succulent. Its gray-green trunk resembles a bottle and is armed with many thorns; in its caudex it stores water to survive during periods of drought. From the apex small green and slightly lanceolate leaves grow, that are arranged in rosettes. It also produces beautiful yellow flowers. In the period of vegetative rest it loses its leaves to grow them back, when it enters the vegetative state.

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.
