Desert Rose question (picture attached)

A couple of years ago I purchased a Desert Rose plant. I have been most impressed! You can neglect it and is still produces beautiful flowers. Has anyone else grown it? I would like to know how hardy it is, and how big it can get. Here is a picture of mine in a 1 gallon pot.

I love adeniums, especially those with enlarged caudexes. They aren't cold hardy at all but as you've discovered can thrive even when neglected. They can get huge. Most of mine go dormant over the winter and begin putting on new growth in the spring.

So how big do these plants get?

Very Nice Desert Rose...

Here's a pic of mine...I bought it in a 6" pot, it is now in an 18" pot. I've had it for four years now. I guess it can get pretty big, depending on where and how it is grown...
