Desert Rose progress

kevpholAugust 31, 2009

I got this Adenium back in June and raised it to expose the caudex when I transferred it to a new pot. The pic on the left is right after I got it and put it in the new pot. As expected, it soon lost all blooms and most of its leaves. New buds started back very quickly though. The pic on the right is what it looks like right now. It has responded very well to full sun, some fertilizer and frequent watering.

It looks very happy and is a nice and full plant. It looks like it grew alot despite the transplant shock.

Good luck.

Awesome looking DR

I've got a couple small ones that finally flowered this year. Can't wait for them to get as big as yours.

Incredible! They certainly don't mind being pot-bound or having over-heated roots!

I am in Mesa/ PHX Az and mine is in full sun too! Crazy how hot the roots must be OK to get.

BEAUTIFUL!
