Hello all,
I'm new to these forums but have been using this site for help with other plants. But that's beside the point...
I went to Lowes and purchased a succulent that had no name. It was grown at Costa farms in Miami, FL.
To me it looks like a species of Pachypodium, but I'm am not sure what it is.
If anyone could help me identify this down to species that would be awesome!

P.saundersi ?..or just a really young P.lamerei?

RE: Pachypodium sp. ID Please

It is very similar to Adenium obesum, but there are spines on it, so it seems unlickely

RE: Pachypodium sp. ID Please

Not an adenium, im pretty sure its a pachypodium. most likely not lamerei as my seedlings already have a very spine base.
I agree with P. saundersii. the leaves look very similar to mine.

RE: Pachypodium sp. ID Please

Thanks guys! I really appreciate the feedback. I was leaning towards P. saundersii myself.
