1-2 year old seedling, H:40-70 cm. This is one of the few species of Delonix that grows as a "bottle-tree" , like a baobab. It is native to the dry South of Madagascar, where it grows together with other succulent plants and caudiciforms. Adult "bottle-trees" are very beautiful when they get covered of plenty of flowers.
Another interesting Delonix from Madagascar. It is very adaptable and can attain anything from 3 to 12 m in height. Flowers lack petals but they are very beautiful, with lots of golden stamens shown when the tree is still leafless. We grew some plants in 35 cm pots and they started blooming beautifully after about 5 years, when they were just 1.5 m tall.

This caudex ant-plant is an epiphytic plant that develop a huge chambered stem, providing shelter for some species of ants.In turn, these ant-plants, or myrmecophytes, receive nutrients and protection from the ants. The caudex of Hydnophytum moseleyanum can get quite large, up to 20-40 cm in diameter, and the bark is grey and smooth (much like the one of...
