Just a quick note that the plant in the second image is actually P. bispinosum.

This was my favorite Pachypodium- caudiciform plant with twisting branches, a few easy to avoid spines, and a great, succulent root system that you could raise up yearly and it would look better and better. I eventually had a large plant with fat, twisted roots above ground- nice. Did fine in light frosts by the way- got down to 25F and no damage (loses its leaves over winter). Takes a lot of water in summer, but less in winter (though winter rains never hurt it any). African native
