I want to cross one of my Pachypodium brevicaule with one of my Pachypodium densiflorum and/or Pachypodium brevicalyx. I seen pictures of the hybrid and it looks beautiful.

But it will be I don't know how many years before I can attempt the cross.

Have you checked out the list facility here? You can add all of the plants you have to a personal list, include notes, and even make sub-lists, like "plants to propagate," "available for trade," and a wish list of plants you don't yet have. It's completely awesome! There's a blue button on the left when you are looking at a plant entry in the DB. Click it to add a plant to "your list."
The golden rule: Do to others only that which you would have done to you.

TY, Stush. ;) I didn't do it all at once, at first, either. But eventually got bored enough last winter to look up every name on my Excel spreadsheet. Once I had my existing plants on there, I add new ones as soon as I get home from getting them. Helps me learn their names too. I no longer worry about losing my list & notes if my computer crashes.

Tiffany, That sounds so much like me. All goes on my spreadsheets including wish list and have list. Another sheet just for purcheses. I try to keep a orderly account of each plant as Name, How much, Where, notes including if died and how. I have a spreadsheet for every group of plants. Now, to put it all together. The bad thing is seeing how much I spent and how many lived and died. Most from mail order plant books for outside plants. Most came 1/2 dead. Lost their will to live or something. Watched them die and could not do nothing about it. Stush

Oh man, I better not keep a list that tells me ANYTHING about purchasing info or amount of $$$ spent!!!! I'm getting ready to go pick up two very large Uncarina decaryi trees, (in a UHAUL trailer if that tells you anything about size) that cost stupid amounts of money.....but....I do keep a list of justifications that explain all the reasons why I'm allowed to buy them.

@Baja_Costero, I have a question. You mention in your comment regarding the Pachypodium windsorii/ Pachypodium baronii var. windsorii that this is the only Pachypodium species with red flowers. I have a โ€œregularโ€ Pachypodium baronii, which is somewhat different in growth habit and, I need to see the blooms now next to each other to discern differences, which I would think there are some?
Unfortunately I didn't snap any pictures of my good size baronii this Summer, it was blooming all Summer on the deck and it is now dropping leaves and going dormant. Here is a not so hot picture of that plant right now, hopefully good enough to see.

Karen, way too many!! Smiling
Actually maybe I should be a little clearer, if baronii is a different species, then we would have two Pachypodium species with red flowers. But then maybe we are splitting hair here? Whistling

Very impressive plants, and even more so given you are getting them to flower indoors. Thumbs up It is not trivial to keep those Pachypodiums going in cultivation. The fact they're doing so well is a tribute to excellent care.

You are right about the red flowers appearing on two species. Thank you for pointing that out and I will make the change. Smiling My comments on P. windsorii were based on when it used to be a variety of P. baronii, which it was for a while, and not a separate species. That is new to me and something I need to get used to. Thank You!

Thanks Baja! Smiling
But, I canโ€™t take full credit for growing them indoors, all my plants spend the Summer outside here in NJ. Our deck is fully โ€œloadedโ€ with all sorts of C&S, with emphasis on Caudiciforms and Epiphyllums, Stapeliads etc. By September they always go back inside in front of bright windows. I am doing this for many years, I just realized that my Pachypodium densiflorum is going on for ca 35 years. Smiling Crazy!!

That's amazing that you've had the Pachypodium densiflorum for that long! I've killed all of mine over the years. Most of them died when I didn't get them indoors early enough in the winter. They froze. Sad

Karen, for me it is a matter of observing dormancy when they have to go inside. They are dropping leaves, so I slow down watering. Some start growing during the Winter, I water them generously. And I find that repotting Pachypodiums in the Spring can be deadly if one doesnโ€™t use a super fast draining medium with very little soil. Years ago I killed a really large Pachy laelii that way, when we had a very wet Summer. Better at that point to be potbound and repot inside in the Fall.

Your observation about repotting in the spring is similar to what I have experienced here in the fall... we have different rainfall patterns, which helps explain why we might treat them differently.

I prefer potting the Pachypodiums in spring or summer and avoid repotting in the fall, in large part because winter is when we get most of our rain, and I don't see the point of making that any riskier than necessary. Most of my Pachypodiums live out in the rain or get moved under cover (still outside) when the rain comes at a particularly bad time. None of them come indoors for the winter because we don't get below 45ยฐF and it always warms up into the 60s or higher during the day.

On the flip side, we get zero rain in summer (yes, not ideal for most Pachypodiums Smiling ) so the spring/summer repot is way safer for me that way. I get to control all the water the plant will receive for months, for better or worse.

It would be great to see some more Pachypodium flowers, Ursula. Smiling Here the saundersiis are all decked out in white, and I'm hoping a moth stops by. Crossing Fingers!
