This cactus with long, sharp, hard spikes and leaves in the upper portion is not doing well.
It has been in the same spot for about 2 years, and not much has changed in that time. It is a sunny spot with afternoon sun, but it is not in direct sunlight.
Can you tell me what is wrong with it?Hi Heidi, I replied to your other post about this plant, but maybe you didn't get the response. A visitor to the Drought Smart Plants Facebook page said this: "Pachypodium lamerei. It comes from Madagascar. Definitely needs good draining soil. :)" so I've looked it up here: Madagascar Palm - hope that helps with some guidelines for how to grow it.
cacti or not a cacti, that is the question
This 10 to 12 inch plant has spines up the column and palm type heart on the top producing long thin leaves. The spines are a V shape and lighter in color. The column has a pale, sage like color and tapers down to the base. Has not flowered and don't know if it will.
