Adenium obesum - Desert Rose
Adenium obesum is a desert-growing caudiciform, beloved for its huge colorful blooms. The plants are deciduous, meaning they lose their leaves every winter. During their growing season, these plants grow lots of leaves and, once mature, produce blooms up to 3" across, in white, red, yellow, or even black. Adenium obesum are deciduous, needing a dry winter rest, but that time spent leafless really showcases the amazing swollen trunk of the plant. These plants make a perfect specimen for bonsai!
• Light: Bright, direct light. South- or west-facing windows preferred.
• Water: Drought tolerant. Let soil completely dry between waterings.
• Considerations: Reduce watering almost completely during the winter.

Great Odenium- little plant big shock
I love my adenium obesum! However, after I unpacked and gave it a little water most of its leaves yellowed and fell off. I hope this is just shock. I’ve placed it in a sunny window and will hold back on watering for a while!
