Size
  •  Adenium Obesum also known as Desert Rose, is a 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.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root
  •  Full sun. Perfect for a sunny window.

      Water during the summer and spring. Reduce water in the winter, but keep hydrated enough to retain its leaves.

      Keep at least 50ºF (10ºC) at all times; if you keep temperatures of 60ºF (16ºC) or higher during the winter, the plant may retain its leaves.

     A well-drained succulent mix, with an ideal pH around 6.0 (slightly acidic).

     Fertilize during spring and summer with controlled-release fertilizer or liquid fertilizer according to label directions.
  • USDA hardiness zone 10a to 11b: from 30 °F (−1.1 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).

Catherine

All the plants were packed extremely well none broken or smashed. Love the fact that use biodegradable packing products. I will be ordering again in the near future. Hooked on Cactus and succulents!

Nicely packed

The plant was packed securely for its travels. Planted it, gave it some water and it has only lost 4 bottom leaves. It is looking great and can't wait for it to grow and bloom.
