Namaquanum grafts
Brevicaule and namaquanum are difficult to keep on their own root base. 
Grafting on to a geayi base will increase their size and health dramatically.

Pachypodium brevicaule leucoxanthus
Virtually the same plant as brevicaule but with white flowers.

Arid Lands
This cross between Pachypodium namaquanum and P. succulentum produces very interesting plants. The F1 plants have vase-shaped caudices with short branches and relatively long spines. The flowers are large compared with P. succulentum, open in contrast to P. namaquanum, and white with purple highlights.

These types of Pachypodiums are variations and not species of themselves. The lamerii is the most common in cultivation. The rosulatum gracilius is just as stunning and a little less common. Geayi curly crests exist but are rare. The nature of crested variations is to start growing in a fan shape and to curl into a wavy form as it matures. The leaves are generally much smaller than the type but retain the same characteristics otherwise. It is unknown whether the crested variations will produce flowers.
