I still have a couple packets of adenium seeds left. I collected these last month while in FL. I planted a few and got 100% germination. I'm 99% sure they are from an ordinary pink blooming plant. If anyone wants some please post here.

Oh I'd love a few! Don't care of color or anything. Just the experience. I'd ordered some that never came in and finally got my money back.

Hi Karyn, if you still have some, can I have a few? I like Adenium so much but in my area it's hard to find any at the stores. Thanks.

Glad to see the babies Kirk. I'm an aunt. lol You should have excellent germination with fresh seed. I am now out of seeds but will have extra seedlings once it warms up. I just planted the tray of seeds to test the germination before I offered them and will likely not keep any.

Karyn, I got the seeds today, they looks great. Thank you so much and I'll keep you inform. MyLan

I sow 4 seeds today, there are 8 seeds but one was broken in half, should be by the mail transportation. I'll so thrill to see the germination of these babies. MyLan.

RE: Adenium seeds

Just keep them warm, bottom heat if possible, and you should see them sprouting in about a week. I'd get the other 3 planted soon as you have better germination with fresh seed. Good luck.

Hi Karyn,

Do you have photos of the mother plant or flowers? Would love to see what I missed. :)

RE: Adenium seeds

I don't have any pics. I was at a nursery in FL and one of the ripe pods just happened to find it's way into my bag ; ) These were large impressive looking trees but I believe that all were the common single pinks. I'm going back in a couple weeks and will hopefully get back to that nursery. If so I'll take some pics then and maybe another pod will fall into my bag. lol

RE: Adenium seeds

Oh! Lol! I read about that incident. You were in the right place at the right time to save those babies. And that unpleasant woman was no help. :)
You go girl!

RE: Adenium seeds

Karyn, it's over 45 days since I sow those seeds, none of them were sprouted. I'm so sad and dig them up today, they were rotted. I may be doing something wrong or it's the winter here the seed could not sprout. MyLan

RE: Adenium seeds

Sorry to hear that. You probably had them too wet, too cold, planted too deep or a combination of all the above. Everyone else, including myself, had excellent germination as far as I know. Unfortunately I don't have anymore but if I get some I'll post another offer.

The seeds should be soaked in warm water for about 8 hrs prior to sowing. They should be planted just below the soil, kept warm and the soil needs to be lightly moistened, not wet. If they haven't sprouted within 2 weeks it's likely they won't come up at all and have probably rotted.

RE: Adenium seeds

Karyn, per your instructions, I did not do anything right. I'll try again if I have a chance. Thanks a lot for your help. MyLan

I think it may be the climate too...i think i buried mine from my plant too deep and i drenched it in water but i have had a good many sprout so it must just be climate too...
