Adenium (Mix Color)- 5 Seeds
Adenium desert rose is commonly known by its deep red flowers and a swollen succulent stem. It is frequently referred to as adenium obesum, the plant which growth mainly depends on pruning and variety. Be very careful with the sap of the plant, as it is poisonous and should not come into contact with pets and children.
When adenium obesum grows on its own, it can reach 10 feet, though there are common cases, when the plant reaches 15 feet. To ensure that the plant has enough soil for proper growth, it should be re-potted in a large container. New growths can be pruned and the plant can be easily shaped at times of its most active growth (during spring and summer months).
Bloom time: Spring
Height: 15 feet to 20 feet
Difficulty level: easy
Planting & Care
Adenium & Pachypodium are very easy to grow, anyone can grow them as long as you give them what they need to thrive. They usually germinate within 7 to 10 days and occasionally some will germinate within a day or two.
To encourage Adenium & Pachypodium to germinate you need a few key ingredients.
Lots of Light (Sunlight or Grow lights)
Heat (25 – 35 degrees Celsius)
Good Draining potting mix
When your seeds arrive they will be securely packaged and separated into the named varieties you have bought to avoid damage in transit and so you know which seed is which.
Sunlight: Set the desert rose in an area that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight each day.
Soil: Fast-draining mix, such as cactus potting mix. Or, mix equal parts peat moss and sharp sand.
Water: Water the desert rose when its soil feels almost completely dry when you insert your finger into the soil. Water until moisture begins to drip from the bottom of the pot, indicating the soil is moistened throughout the plant s root zone. Empty the pot s drip tray after every watering.
Temprature: Average room temperatures 60-75°F/16-24°C
Fertilizer: Feed every 2 weeks spring through fall with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted by half.
- Reduce watering and stop fertilizer applications during winter because desert rose enters a period of semi-dormancy during the shorter and cooler winter days.
