Adenium Obesum 'Shada'

5 reviews   |  
Size
  •  Adenium arabicum ia a remarkable succulent plant with a grotesquely swollen trunk which resembles a miniature baobab tree. It is a local or morphological form of Adenium obesum, but commonly used to be know as a separate species and very popular with 'fat plant' collectors. Adenium arabicum is similar in appearance to Adenium obesum, but creates a massive, more squat and fat caudex without much differentiation between trunk and branches and is the most succulent and "desert like" species.

     Small pink flowers.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  •  Bright filtered light is best but in areas where light is not as burning, plants may be kept outdoors in full sun unprotected but remember that caudex is very susceptible to sun scalding. Plant becomes leggy in the shade and its flowering reduced.

      Water when growing, keep on the dry side in winter.

     Average, Well-Drained.

  • 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.

Best Plant Yet!

I received this plant about 3 weeks ago with another one I bought. I decided to put both of them together in a shallow dish, and to my surprise, both were doing very well. Mother of a thousand started taking over my Shada, so I had to replant it again. Now it has its own planter. I have been treating it like a succulent (obviously) by keeping the soil dry. It is starting to already sprout a new little buddy on its trunk! It is a beautiful plant and now I want to buy some other once that are similar looking!

Fabulous!

Plant arrived very quickly, I wasn't even expecting it for a couple more days. My new Adenium Obesum 'Shada' is good-sized, healthy, and settling in fine. I can't think of a way to improve this purchase from SucculentsBox.
