First bloom!

maark23 TX/8aMay 21, 2014

Hello all! This is my first Adenium bloom!

It is supposed to be Thong Siam. The other stems are also full of buds but some seem to be drying offf. I wonder if I should water more.

Congrats! Looks like it'll be amazing! Can't wait to see more pics when it's fully opened and another when it's a couple of days old. I have one that the buds dropped off last year. It has buds now so fingers crossed they won't drop this year. I've not actually seen it's flowers in person as of yet.

As for the drying off...I have no suggestions. Hopefully someone will chime in with some info.

Thanks Kirk! I do have more pictures I just need to upload them!

I hope your plant blooms!

Thanks Laura!! The buds on another stem are actually what's drying off. The leaves look fine but the buds shriveled and and fell off.

Here are some more pictures. The first bloom opened around May 3. The next flowers seemed to open up more. This one opened up around May 13.

This bud opened up yesterday.
