One of our smaller successful offcuts from the main plant. The only one out of all of them that has flowered.

Well done! And what does the regrowth on the original plant look like?

Our monster pachy is coming back fierce after its initial relocation and decapitation... 😁

Our newest itty bitty freebie... Three trunks, not two(one hiding) ... ONLY a meagre 15 foot high.... Had to decapitate it at 7 foot mark to be able to transport it... 5 minutes to remove from ground.... 2.5hrs to load onto our Ute... Best score this year!

Wow! I can not imagine how heavy this was. It must be REALLY quite old. Great #freebie!! #pachypodium-lamerei #pachypodium #madagascar-palm

@lovestogarden It had to have been over half a tonne.... Even fell on me during the move.... I've never felt more like a pincushion in my life!!

Oh, my! A pincushion for sure. 😣 Puncture wounds hurt a whole bunch. 💪

I wouldn’t want to wrangle mine + it’s only a single trunk with multi branches at the top!! Moving yours was a massive feat!! 💪🏼
