Iíve had a pachypodium lamerei for more than 10 years, now itís about 75 cm high and for the past 2 years, the leaves have progressively shown signs of some disease: deformed leaves turning black or yellow and eventually falling off the plant; this is a 3-trunk plant, 2 of them being affected, the third one remaining healthy, as far as I can see (for pictures, see http://cid-f906c20409ee91bc.skydrive.live.com/browse.aspx/Pachypodium). Iíve changed the soil, I watered less, I watered more, Iíve cut out all leaves, Iíve tried large spectrum insecticide and antifungal products, nothing works, the disease is progressing slowly.
But I like my plant!
Who has any idea?
