For impact and sculptural drama, this well-behaved tree is ideally-suited to a bright, warm space. Basking in the gentle, sunny climate of coastal areas, this specimen brings more than a touch of the Tropics to your home. Tightly-packed glossy leaves, with a slow but steady growth, form branches that twist over time. Each tree is unique, characterful and one of a kind.

Traditional practitioners of folk medicine in Madagascar believe an extract from this tree can cure Malaria, dysentery and poisonings of all kinds. Fascinating, but should you come down with a sudden Malarial fever, we recommend a more conventional approach first.

An adaptable tree with modest watering requirements it's naturally drought-resistant. The top few cm of substrate should be allowed to dry out between drinks. Water deeply, and thoroughly, allowing all excess to drain away. Being rather adept at holding-on through dry spells, it will certainly be happier on the dry side.
