Hoping this one roots-P lamerii

greenlarry(UK 8/9)April 1, 2006

This is a plant that I got by surprise recently, well a cuting of one!

It's Pachypodium lamerii, and at the moment it resembles a dead stick!

Its in the greenhouse at the moment, but would it prefer somewhere warmer to root?

They always want somewhere warmer, Larry. If you can give them more heat and light, you stand a much better chance of coaxing that plant out of its present condition.

More warmth, especially bottom heat will coax those roots out ;-)

I think it may be too late! I looked at it today and the stem sems soft, rubbery, and i believe it should be solid?
