    Hey friends! I'm new to this and have a question about my Madagascar palm cactus. I've had it almost 2 years and this past winter, it got aphids and started dropping its leaves. I've tried everything from spraying it with dishwasher soap to using seven dust but it dropped everyone of its leaves. The last one fell yesterday. I'm afraid its too late. Is it dead? How can I tell??

    Ah yes, the pachypodiums. I used to have some. Interesting plants. They can drop all their leaves and be fine. As long as the underlying condition has been corrected and the trunk and roots are ok then it will generate a new set of leaves at some point.
