Hi everyone. I've had this plant for about a year and a half. Last winter it started losing some leaves (the leaves used to come down a few inches from the top, and there were probably 25ish +). Does anyone know what it might be? I am hoping to be able to take better care of it.

Thanks!

Hi twig12, Welcome!

I'm not good with Cacti and Succulent type plants but it reminds me of (I think) a Euphorbia I once saw a photo of.

I'm sure one of our knowledgeable cactus people will be along shortly with an ID for you!

Well, forget Euphorbia. Green Grin! How about a Pachypodium of some sort? Two photos from our database for comparison:

Yes, Pachypodium

Looks like the Madagascar Palm. Thanks for the help and quick replies!
