Do you trim the branches? It does look awesome! I'm with you Malestrom, I love all her plants!

Thanks. I do trim the branches on this and most of my plants. I like the compact look.

It is amazing they are that big in just 88 days.

Thanks - yes I am pleased - I do not know how big they should be - but these are strong. I actually took one of the smaller ones on the left out and it had a great looking root system for a small plant. I AM pleased!

I've been so obsessed with my Adeniums I haven't ventured into Pachypodium world... Seems like a lot of varieties out there to try. Thanks for sharing the pic of yours...

The nice thing about Adeniums is that you get lots of flowers which you don't get with the Pachypodium. I do like the caudex on them and they are pretty easy to grow.
