The Madagascar Spiny Palm is an extremely unique and super rare exotic succulent!  Commonly refererred to as Madagascar Palm due to the fan of leaves growing from it's crown, Pachypodium lamerei is actually a succulent and more closely related to cacti.

Very attractive and unique ornamental houseplant with a spiny trunk. Although this plant is not edible, it is definitely a conversation piece!
