This plant suppose to have 4 different colors, but 2 grafted branches died and one in slow to have bud.
Only one blooms as this time.

From different angles. It is very dark velvet red when first open, but the color light up after few days.

Hi, beautiful blooms you got there. Just curious are your gravel mixed all so chunky right to the bottom of the pot or just the surface placing only? I do understand good drainage is essential. Thanks.

Marie, what a spectacular display of blooms, all opening at the same time. My plants are still quite small in comparison to yours but you have done it again, making me more excited about what the future can be for my plants.

Thank you Rick, Marlene and John.

Rich that looks like Harsadee Red?

Marlene, go slow, these plants can be very addicted.

John, thank for nick name Grenfingers. I think Osmocote was a big part of it.

My Gosh!!, Mary. Tremendous. What a collection you have there.
Looks like a lot of the photo's from Thailand and Taiwan. So beautiful.
If I ever find myself in close by, I would love to see them.
This might mean a trip from the west coast of the U.S. to the East coast where Laura resides and maybe catch some of the other Adenium friends I have been so lucky to exchange conversations with. Who knows, eh!

Thanks Marie. Always sucha treat.

Thank you Rick and Averil.
Averil, I started growing adenium in 1988 and can't stop ever since.

I lost so many last winter, in those, 5 big ones, that were with me over 10 years. It was very sad to let go.

Oh gosh Marie, if I lost any I would be gutted but if they were ten years old I would be devastated
