Pachypodium cactipes

The New Orleans Botanical Garden had a great show a few months ago with lots of vendors. I picked up this Pachypodium cactipes. Never heard of it before! The leaves have started to yellow and I can't figure out the cause! I don't want to lose this one because I don't know how replaceable it is. Stem is hard as a rock so don't think it's rot ...

My sister is a pachypodium freak, and she has one of these, where is the yellow? Just the yellow on the bottom leaves? I really dont see anything to be concerned about

RE: Pachypodium cactipes


As the old leaves are replaced by new, the old ones will wither and die - that's what I see happening there. It's prime Pachy season now and the beasts are rarin' to go.
