Pachypodium horombense is a species found in Madagascar and
arid regions of continental Africa. It is also known as Pachypodium rosulatum
v. horombense. It is the queen of the Madagascar Pachypodiums, with many people
agreeing that this is the most beautiful. All parts of plant are poisonous if
ingested. The plant trunk is typically short and fat. The trunk is smooth with
conical spines. Branching occurs frequently and may start from the base. The
deciduous leaves are narrow, but not as long the rosulatum, stiff, dark green
with a lighter middle vein and form a rosette around the tips of branches. It
produces large, bell shaped, yellow flowers. Flowers will set in the second or
third year in good conditions. It blooms in small containers and never gets too
big. Hardiness zones 9-11, (4°C/40°F, -5°C/25°F) in Winter. Horombense should
be given full light, warmth, and plenty of water during the warmer months and
considerably less water in the cool months. The Pachypodium tends to lose its
leave and go dormant in Winter. Use a potting mix consisting of 2 parts sand to
1 part peat moss to 1 part loam with small gravel added for increased drainage.
