A great eyecatcher for your sunniest windows.

Desert roses saves in its thickened stem (= caudex) enough water to survive long dry periods

Watch out for the big tuber - they only thicken like this, when have been carefully raised from seeds - most other nurseries will just sell you a rooted cutting, which will never develop this particular part of adeniums beauty.

Flower: late spring through summer (Best to give the plant some winterrest and put it at a very light place to get more flowers)

Potsize: 17cm
Age: 10-12 years

English name: Desert Rose

Botanical name: Adenium obesum

Origin: Arabian peninsula, Africa


Place: light - very light ? during
summer it can be placed as well outside, with temperatures not going below 10°C - In winter give it a winterrest by placing it in a room with temperatures aroun 15°C

Water: in summer very little - in winter practically not at all (winterrest). The plant will eventually react to dryness by shedding it leaves. So don't panic when you get back from a vacation and the plant stands there naked - showing only its caudex. Slowly restart the watering and the plant will cast out again.

Fertilizer: Spring - autumn - fertilize very 3-4 weeks using cactus or flowerfertilizer
