Hello! I purchased a Dessert Rose plant today, should I repot it? It has bulbs; it looks like the pot is too big for it. Thanks for all your help. Aria
Junglajungle, your plant looks okay in that pot.
Thanks Marie, do you think is ok to leave in the soil it came in from the store? Thanks for taking the time to reply. Ariana
Ariana, I am not sure what soil it came in.
But if you decided to repot, new soil wouldn't hurt.
Osmocote helps it grow faster.
Thanks for your help Marie, I will keep it in the pot with the same soil and repot next spring using the soil you recomend. Ariana
Hi Ariana, as Marie says we are not sure what's under the stones in your pot, but bear in mind that stores are notorious for growing plants in the wrong type of mix, nurseries are usually better in this respect. So, if when you water, it runs out almost immediately or a very similar amount runs out of the pot from what you put into it, the compost should be OK. In other words, if it takes a while to run out, or a lot less does, then your mix is holding too much water and I would be inclined to use another mix. Search on here for the gritty mix thread for info. Hope this helps : )

Thanks Gill and Marie, I repotted the plant today, I kept it in the same pot (until I can get a nice one) I will look up the gritty mix. Ariana
Hello I have another question on this plant. I placed it under my cover patio since April 13; it gets about 2 hours of direct morning sunlight. I have noticed that the leaves have red on them, not sure if this is due to sunlight or is this Adenium multiflorum? The only reason I want to know is because multiflorum need dormancy. Thanks for your help again. Ariana
Last picture. Thanks again. Ariana
Please help me with plant I'd thanks Ariana
I have some that put out red tips that eventually go green. I'm guessing that's normal with some hybrid crosses. Perhaps someone can be of better help but I don't think it's anything to worry about.
