I received my first Desert Rose as a gift about two months ago. It is still in the small plastic nursery container and is doing well. It has at least doubled if not tripled in height since I got it. After looking at photos on this site, it seems as if everyone removes the bottom leaves off of their plants. Mine has leaves from top to bottom - should I remove them or leave them and when do I transplant it? Thanks for your help and all of you have beautiful plants.
