I got these 5 babes from Rinoa. They came in great condition one had a slightly soft caudex but I potted them and gave them some water. They will remain on my patio until I see leaves forming.
Voodoo, I don't feel so bad anymore since more and more people are getting addicted just like me......
Your plants look great....how many days for the shipping?
Nice! Which ones did you get? They look like they're in great shape.
ok I tried to post the pic of them fresh out the box but didn't work from my phone
Kirk I got :
Marie she shipped them on Friday and they came today. When she emailed me it was Saturday for her but my email saying the plants where shipped came last Friday. That was pretty fast shipping !
Also Marie you have no idea some how I ended up with 800 plus seeds .... :p
Outstanding plants! I also ordered from her: Amethyst, Black Pearl, Violet Heart, and an arabicum seedling--they haven't been shipped yet...but then again, you don't just unpot them, slap 'em in a box and ship 'em all in the same day--it takes a few days for them to be in proper bare-root shape and all. I'm all smiles seeing yours and thinking of mine coming soon!

That's exciting.. most of those must be new varieties as well... please keep us updated...
They all sound interesting. I only had the early Spring catalog of Rinoa so I don't see any of those you both listed in it, unfortunately.
I forget which adenium group/forum I had seen a picture of an Amethyst in bloom but if yours turns out the same then I'll just let you know how extremely jealous I will be ahead of time! LOL
Again, congrats to both you and Mike on your recent acquisitions.
Does anyone have Rinoa's new catalog??
I received a new one from her about a week ago.
voodoo nice plants for sure.thy look healthy.please keep us updated with pics once in flowering.
i would like ti check out her catalog find it on ebay. would you be able to send it or post it here?
the question is how much is the shipping cost to the states?
thankx for pics and good luck with them.
She is on Facebook email her for the newest one. She has 6 or 7 new varieties even since I ordered a couple of months ago and some real beauties... The file is too big to load here...
Yep, on Facebook her page is titled "Orient Adenium-Adenium (Desert Rose)" with some Chinese characters after that. The shipping costs vary according to how many plants you order--for 3 to 4 plants the shipping charge is $28...this is for EMS, Express Mail Service. It seems like a lot but like has been noted here, they arrive within a week or so. Mine haven't been shipped yet, should be any day now. She has so many really nice flowers (with size of diameter noted in centimeters) that I had a very tough time narrowing my choices down to just 4!
