Am I doing this right?
I don't know what possessed me to buy this, but after seeing some photos, I suddenly decided I had to own one.
So I bought one. It arrived. And now I'm wigging out.
After doing some reading up on Adenium, it seems it likes lots of water, superbly draining soil and lots of sun -- is that correct?
I followed by planting in gritty mix in a wider and shallower pot (the best I have within my collection right now outside of going to a bowl), and I can place it anywhere from full, full sun indoors to outdoors, or go as shady as I need to also. All light sources will be south-facing be it indoors or outdoors, FYI.
So...is it full sun indoors or part sun outdoors, or...?
And -- I am not entirely certain I planted this at the right depth. The caudex has some roots growing out of it and I'm thinking those have to remain covered to some degree, correct?
The roots in question:
Most of these are long enough to be planted in the medium, but a couple of them stop short before the height I've placed it at. I'd have to plant about 1/2" deeper, at least, to fully cover in soil. So, given that it's gritty mix, I just pushed up some to cover the bottom of those roots. I can easily spray them daily to keep them moist if need be.
I'm a first-timer with this plant and honestly have NO idea what I'm doing. I've seen photos of totally grown Adenium on here and the internet -- but their roots don't have this issue; I have no idea what to do with these stray roots, haha.
If anyone here experienced with this could provide some feedback and suggestions, it'd be awesome if I could keep this interesting specimen alive.
