Caudiciforms  There are 93 products.

These plants from dry areas produce an unusually thick stem, the caudex. They are also called pachycauls and they have a disproportionately thick trunk, often with few branches. The caudex can be hidden underground, but in most cases they grow upwards, forming spectacular trees. The largest caudiciforms in the world are the baobabs.
