Yellow !
I bought seed labelled "Touching Heart", one of Mr Ko's, and this is the first to bloom. The picture was taken late afternoon. I assume that "Touching Heart" was the pod parent, the pollen parent was unknown. I suppose that buying seed where both parents are not known is pointless if you are aiming for a particular characteristic, but still interesting.
Happy growing,

That is lovely Brian, it looks like quite a deep yellow. I would be chuffed to mintballs

Thank you Marie,
In fact it is more yellow than other seedlings where both parents were stated as yellow ! Adenium genes will be a mystery for a long while yet I imagine.
Happy growing,

Hi Brian:

That is a wonderful color from seed! How long did it take to bloom?

Hello Brian. That's nice. I suspect that further flowers will even be different to this one perhaps? It is lovely as it is, but a splash more red would be super. Please show us the later flowers when they open? Great results...as usual, well done!

Thanks Laurie & Gill,
The plant is 2 years old. You are right that later flowers may be different, the double red I posted recently was plain red in the first blooms but has since produced more bi-coloured red/blue blooms.
Happy growing,
Brian UK.
p.s. I have just received a note from the Post Office that my last plant consignment of the year from Taiwan has arrived. I will collect it in the morning, woo hoo.

It's very lovely, Brian. Congrats on your bloom.

I love the flower of your seedling. Nice job on getting such a beauty. I love it...singles are my favorite and this one sure is striking.

Hybridizing is indeed an interesting adventure. I hybridized peonies, daylilies, lilies and iris in my gardens and it sure is crazy some of the colors you get when you cross a couple plants. I always think in my mind I will get this or that and seem to get a huge surprise most of the time.

I'm looking forward to crossing adeniums and see what I get.

Thank you for sharing your photo.

I think it's lovely! I can't wait to see my babies bloom, but a good, long wait ahead! Thanks for sharing...

Love it! Congrats and well worth the wait. I've only had one seedling bloom this year and fell in love with it. I hope next year I'll see my 2 year olds finally bloom.
