Madagascar Palm
Pachypodium lamerei

Maddy is a bit of a prick, but only because he isn't really who he claims to be. Despite having the name "palm" and long, narrow leaves that grow only at the top of his shiny, silver trunk covered in spikes, he isn't a palm tree at all. He's actually a succulent of the Apocynaceae family. Despite being a pathological liar, he's harmless and a really great plant once you get to know him.

Sunlight:Bright and direct light.

Water:Once every 2-3 weeks and likes to dry out completely.

Pets:Mildly toxic to pets.

Travel:Month-long meditation trip? Count this one in.

Easy:So low maintenance it's borderline neglect.

Pro-tip: The more full sun it gets, the better chance it has of blooming profusely.


A great plant for beginners and neglectful owners. Aloes grow best in full sun, require well-draining soil, and only need water once every 2-3 weeks. 

With proper nutrients and care, this aloe may even bloom some fiery red flowers. Although not usually fatal, they are considered toxic to pets.

Around 11 inches tall with a container width of 4 inches.

Sizes will vary.
