Pachypodium eburneum bloom

Yardley, PA

I am having a great spring for blooms. My P. eburneum has just bloomed. I have had this for years and it has never bloomed for me before.

Very nice Sally - amazing long stem for the flower.

I my plants under fluorescents and this really was reaching for the light. I think it wasn't quite bright enough which is why the stem became so long.

Nice flower, Sally. Really an event. Even in full sun they still reach for the light (or at least my rosulatum does). When does your plant go outside? I'm impressed that all this happens under lights.

This is off the hook!

Sally: You must have done something right! ;)

Well, my two cents would be: The most amazing Pachypodiums (large ones) that I have ever seen were decorations at some indoor swimming pool many years ago. The person responsible for the plants told me that they only watered them twice or three times a year. The rest of the moisture must have been provided by the evaporating water from the pool.

Nice flower Sally. I was disappointed this year. I had quite a few buds coming on on several pachys but when I moved them outside (thinking it would be better) lots of the tips of the flower buds dried/die back. Maybe a sunburn.
:-(
Buts there is always next year. ^_^

Mine will be going out in a week or two. Your right Baja, I was surprised they would bloom under lights.
That is so disappointing Helen! but you have a good attitude.

These flowers only look better in the plural. By the way, the nectar is quite tasty. It's been oozing from the base of my first flower (no pollinators in sight).
