  • Adenium Obesum also known as Desert Rose, is a very rare, striking plant with swollen stems and deep succulent red flowers.

    The plant is deciduous in cooler winters, but it can be kept in leaf provided there is sufficient warmth and light water. There is no part of these plants that doesn’t command interest, from the dramatically swollen stems on older plants to the bright flowers to the tight clusters of narrow, green leaves.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.

    Here is our blog about the shipping process and packaging: https://succulentsbox.com/pages/shipping-return-policy

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Sweet little guy.

He came to us wrapped with care. Tiny green leaves and a good collection of clean ,healthy roots. Plump little stump , firm to the touch. I did as the instructions said, we let him hang out a few days. Now he is flourishing

Not thriving

While I planted my desert rose as soon as it arrived, it has sadly failed. I called customer service and they readily agreed to replace it. I am currently waiting for the replacement, and paid for a heating pad to make sure it will not freeze. I ordered other plants at the same time as my original order and they are all doing very well. I would not hesitate buying plants from here.

Squishy

This one arrived pretty squishy and pretty yellow. I got it planted and water and under some grow lights and it seems to be doing better. It’s not as squishy but still yellow. I’m hoping in the next week it’ll be doing a lot better.
