In this post I share everything I have learned growing a Madagascar Palm in my home greenhouse. I wouldn’t mind having a few in my dome growing space in this post I share why. Be sure to scroll down to see videos featuring this plant and growing tips.
The Madagascar Palm was a gift from a friend who started the plant from seed. This plant has been growing in my dome greenhouse since 2016. It has been a treat to watch it get taller and tackle the different temperatures in my dome. In the video below I share what the plant looks like in year 6 in my dome greenhouse. Questions can be submitted on my website.

About the Madagascar Palm
One important fact about this plant is it loves sunshine and heat. I have only grown this variety in my dome greenhouse in the space that gets the most light. The Madaascar does best in hardiness zones 9a-11. I recommend growing it in a container so you can control the amount of water it gets and sunshine.
Keep in mind that the plant is said to be poisonous if ingested. It is also a good idea to keep the plant up and away from traffic because of its sharp spikes.
The plant can grow to be 10-15 feet tall and 6 feet wide over time. This cactus also known as the Pachypodium lamerei is from Madagascar, Africa. If mine gets this big I will have to rebuild my dome greenhouse!
More Information about this plant can be found on the Port St. Lucie Botanical Gardens Website. I hope to visit this location someday in the near future to share more with you.
