Lonnie,

That is awesome! Did you hand pollinate them or did the insects pollinate?

How fun to have your own seeds to plant up.

RE: Seed Pod

Lonnie, that is so great! I tried to hand pollinate but did not have success. Has the adenium in the first picture produced seeds for you before? Just wondering if they will produce flowers like that..unless it is grafted? Good luck!

I didn't hand pollenate these, it's all natural.
They were purchased from Lowes or HD a few years ago.
I have one that looks like Super Concubine, a pink, red, and a yellow/red that just barely opens that have seed pods. I doubt that I'll plant these, so I'll have seeds in the near future. Once they mature I'll offer the seeds to new members.

RE: Seed Pod

Ahh, Lonnie! If you are offering seeds to new members, I'd really love to be on that list! I've been trying to find someone here that would be willing to help me get started on my first adenium seedlings but haven't had any luck. I've always been "too late to the party" and I'm having trouble ordering seeds from overseas since I don't seem to be getting emails back from the sellers!

I'm new to GardenWeb so I'm not really sure what to do next! Should I send you an email? How does this work?

Kara,

Once the pods mature, I'll PM you with my address and have you send me a SASE. I'll send you several seeds from the different plants. All are single flowers and no guarantee to colors. I do have doubles and triples, but they are not setting close to these, so I would guess they will all be single blooms.

Where did you get those pots & are you using gritty mix?

RE: Seed Pod

Lonnie, I use 60% Lanscaping mix ( pine bark + sand) + 20% perlite + 20 turface, bought from John Deer company, for the pot I bought from https://www.hummert.com/product-details/7353/villa-low-bowls , they are light but very durable in the sun.
