Pachypodium brevicaule

Decatur, GA

This little grafted plant had been blooming well all spring. And then I noticed these seed pods. I thought it was pretty cool. They looked the same for weeks then yesterday I noticed they pods had turned brown and split. I managed to retrieved about 6 seeds.
If anyone is interested in trying to grow them dmail me.

Helen, just want to thank you for showing us all your wonderful caudiciforms on DG. Do you mostly buy them locally near you or order from other farther away places?

Far away.
Many of the Euphorbias came for Out-of-Africa through eBay. I went a bit crazy several years ago and got lots of tiny little plants. Some succumbed, some made it and others are thriving.
I have also gotten from other eBayers and Aridlands. Both are good. Ebayers are accountable and you can rate them if they don't do a good job so most sellers are motivated to have happy customers. Aridlands is just plain excellent though I have noticed OoA plants are bigger and sturdier for the most part.
I also get at Ikea, HD and Lowes and a local nursery called Pikes.
Any you are welcome Nancy. I am actually thrilled to have some place to share my little gems with other plant nuts. Most people who know me and see my collection and just glance at it and consider me a plant nut for sure. :-) I certainly enjoy your input as well. Thank you.

Is that a red peanut cactus? It is so beautiful. You do have many sources for your caudiciforms. I like Arid Lands also but have never tried Out of Africa through Ebay. I'll have to look them up. I buy and sell stuff there quite often.
I'm happy to find other people who love plants too. It's nice to share with others and talk about the plants.

Great plants Helen. P. Brevicaule is real water sensitive. I will have to find that grafted. That is one that didn't do well even in the s/h. The red flowers are the other one are amazing.

Thanks SallyD. I water the graft a lot and so far so good. I haven't tried one on its own roots.
