Adenium. Here is my other surprise for the day. Within a few days flowers and buds. These truly are plants that seem to love hot, dry conditions and very little care. I really love these flowers and they come in many beautiful shades of reds, white and pink. Sooo tempted to collect a few more. Always a battle between what I can look after and the desire to be surrounded by garden beauties - but hey, these look after themselves, no demands. 😋😈 #adenium #desertrose

@jyotu Not sure the way I grow mine here in the sub-tropics where it is drought tolerant is relevant to the growing conditions in your country. They can be tropical or desert plants and mine are outside in pots. They like moist, not wet soil. Good drainage and no standing in water. Allow the soil to dry out before watering. Mine get the rain but we do not get too much rain. Too much water and the plant will drop its leaves. Put it in a sunny position and treat it as you would a succulent.

@jyotu Adeniums are drought tolerant and in their natural conditions store water from summer rains in the bulbous roots and fat base trunk and do not get water in winter. Leave the bulbous root exposed and not covered with soil. The plant likes sun and light. Feed with a slow release fertiliser in Spring.
