Plenty of growth from this Desert rose now, I've placed him on a bright windowsill above a radiator I think he's loving it 😊

I brought a little baby Desert rose (Adenium obesum) really hoping I can keep it alive! I always over water them 🙈

They do not like overwatering. Too much water stored in the bulbuous root, makes the base of the plant rot.

Thank you @Annettenoosa 💕 I will try my best.. Is their a way to know they need watering?

If it is summer and hot and dry, they appreciate a drink. Soil moist, not wet. Do not stand plant in water. Let soil dry out between watering. They are a tropical plant so like heat and lots of light. The bulbuous root needs to be exposed too.

@mgrose well done you for growing a tropical plant in a cold climate from seed. They are slow growing. Treat it like a cactus, warmth, good light.Very little water in Winter when growth slows, increase water in Summer. Over watering is the biggest killer of Desert Rose. Good luck. @wesleybrian
