Adenium obesum, Desert Rose, Fatty
Adeniums are the ideal potted bonsai . They develop impressively thick trunk, do not become large and bloom with many beautiful colors. They tolerate drought in all seasons and do not suffer if you forget to water them.
Adeniums are typical tropical plants from tropical deserts of the Arabian Peninsula. In winter they should remain in a warm place. The watering then is very sparingly, if at all, because they easily rot. If the temperature falls below 20 degrees Celsius, it should not be watered at all. Because of the drought , it is possible to soften the stems and shrivel. After restoration of waterings in April/May, the plant will recover.
As a typical desert plants Adeniums need all day direct sun. They bloom all year long as long as it is warm enough. This size of the plants could flower this next summer .
These plants are from mixed seeds of 12 varieties. While there are no blossoms, we can not guarantee the color. But quantities are limited and unlikely to persist long enough to bloom at the nursery.
Adenium seedlings develop beautiful and thick stems like the ones you see on the internet. Adeniums from cuttings are a cheaper alternative, but they never develop those stems! The plants in our nursery are either from seed or grafted, but never from cutting!
