|I got this as Pachypodium eburneum. Any ideas? Sorry for the bad picture. I will get some shots in better light later.|
The blooms are a creamy white and about 1 1/2 inches across.

|That's what it looks like to me. Any reason to think it's other than what they told you it was?|

|Many pictures of P. eburneum look different. Here is a better shot. Thanks for the confirmation!|

|I agree with Kim. I think that's E. eburneum. It's looking good, Hetty. |

I was getting interested in them and was discouraged because I was told they are very picky and hard to grow. Something about needing summer rest and no water and winter growth and little water. I guess I will watch you with yours before I order any seeds. Please keep me informed. I like the look of them, like a Euphorbia crossed with a Huernia.

|None of my Pachypodiums (and I have about 5-6 species, maybe more) are fussy at all.|

Thanks. I just got information from Ursula (my fat plants). I think I am going to try the seeds. Do they have the white latex sap like the Euphorbias?

|Being in the Apocynaceae family, yes they do have white sap.|

|My P. geayi is not fussy either. Grows amongst daylilies quite happily.|
