ID house plant no 2 please - I know it's some sort of cactus. I originally had it in a bottle garden, but it grew too big!




I think its Pachypodium not sure which variety, i think 'lamerei'

Wow interesting .

Has it flowered before?

I've had it about ten years and it's never flowered. It never has many leaves on it either and the ones it does have are all clumped at the top. The trunk of it is quite fat, so I think this is where it stores it's water. Really, it should be re-potted but I dunno where to start, gloves on I think! lol
