This desert rose doesn't belong to me, belongs to my personal friend who lives in Viet Nam. He has so many good ideas of what to do with his adenium obesum, and this is one of them. He also had one pot growing in water with no soil, and another that he grafted a caudex on top of the branch. I learned many things from him.

He said, when he worked on this plant, he had to hold his hand very still.

Wow! That's amazing! I'd be so scared to do that to any of my adeniums.

Kirk, I am too, but if you make a mistake, just prune it and get more branches. The plant will live.
These cut already heal.

WOW!!!!! That is absolutely amazing!! Truly an art form. How does he get the split stem to callus so well and evenly with no rot setting in?

Karyn, it is neat ha? He is waiting for the branches on top to get bigger and stronger, so he can graft multi colors on them.

I can't believe that he can do that without killing the plant. That's pretty remarkable.

Marie...

Embarrassed to say that I killed the seedlings, and I have to start over with a fresh batch.

Many events led to my forgetting to bring in the plants before the temperatures dropped below the danger zone. All the seedlings rotted...but, I did manage to keep the A. obesum "Arrogant" alive and well.

I will start with my braiding efforts again, in the early Spring of '13.

I'm starting to become much better at killing my plants...it saves time!
