Adenium Obesum -- Help
Hello everyone in the Adenium forum,
I had purchased this Desert Rose plant from a plant nursery December 2011. I repotted it last year, and had it outside all summer. I now have brought it inside as temperatures are getting cold outside.
My problem is it looks like the plant is getting tall and skinny. I almost feel like the caudex/trunk has shrunk even though it has grown taller. It didn't flower at all for me yet either. I am wondering if I am doing something wrong with this plant or if I should be pruning this plant? If I should be pruning it, do I cut off right above the caudex, and do I do it now before winter or in spring?
My last concern is you can see when I first bought the plant it had leaves all along the trunk which fell off after I repotted it when I bought it over winter. This summer none of those leaves grew back, only on the top. Is this normal?
I'm hoping someone in this forum will be able to help me, thanks!
