Opened this morning folks. I'm fair delighted with it. I thought it would end up pink but it's a lovely deep red with a yellow throat. It's the first adenium flower I've seen in the flesh.
Kind regards

Averil, that is so special. To have your first Adenium flower being from one that you started. The red is a nice deep red. You have it staged so well in that pot also. It matches your Geraniums to.
Top notch.

How gorgeous! I love the way you've displayed your beautiful adenium. The pot and top dressing of pebbles is perfect. Very nice!

Thanks for all your kind comments folks. It's when I look at that flower that I realise how beautiful the plants I see on this forum must be when seen in the flesh. I'm happy with my little bloom and there's a few more to open. Yahooooo!
Kind regards to all

Averil,
Well done !!! Now just imagine when the plant has a full head of bloom ! You will see for yourself that they are long lasting too. Please post again when more open. We are having good adenium weather at the moment aren't we ?

Britta, thanks. Have hope for sure! For some reason that one of mine has flowered but not a sausage from any others lol. Good luck

Thanks Brian, I was thinking how lovely the plant will be with more blooms so I'm looking forward to the other buds opening. Regarding the weather, there must be something in the air if I've managed to get a flower lol

It's very nice, I love the red and yellow.

Being from seed, is this the color you expected?
