Found this adenium all forgotten and neglected at a nursery in Vero Beach. Look at the roots I get to play with LOL!
That is going to be a great looking plant with the root system.
Not sure if they do the interesting root manipulation with 'Obesum's' or just Arabicums/Thai soco's.
Take a look at Adeniumsindia.com. They have some very interesting photo's and description of training roots for a particular look.
They hang them for up to a month and the roots become more maliable and they use bamboo sticks to hold roots where they want when repotted.
Quite an art in Thailand and other countries.
How long does it take for a root system like that to develop? I don't think I have the patience and fortitude for that kind of project but it is a curious thing.
YOU lucky gal!!!
SHe is beautiful!!!
OMG!!! Love those roots!!
Wow - a great looking set of roots!
I had to laugh reading these messages in order.
Just my sense of humor of lack of.
Someone not into plants would think we where talking of a person.
Only Adenium aholics or plant lovers would appreciate.
By the way that is one special plant you have there.
Rick yes, I see what you mean, it does read as if a person is being described, lol! We often talk about ones good set of roots, fat bottoms etc., what are we like??
Michelle, welcome to the forum. What a find, that's a great looking plant you have there, it will be interesting to see it develop even further. How big is it, it looks HUGE? Are you planning on un-potting it to see what else lies below or have you done this already in your picture?
Gill from the UK.
