Adenium Obesum Plant | Pink and White Desert Rose Plant
Adenium Obesum - Desert Rose. This fun and unusual succulent thrives and thrills with little care. Native to the semi-arid regions of Arabia, it requires lots of sun, and little water. Forming an extremely wide, bulbous base, and twisting, swollen branches tipped with tightly clustered leaves and bright flowers, Adenium lend an architectural interest in the ground or in containers. Popular bonsai specimen.
For containers, plant in well-draining succulent or cactus potting mix. Water lightly during spring and summer. Reduce water in winter, but indoors, provide enough water to keep the leaves hydrated. Do not expose to temperatures below 50 degrees. Beware of toxic sap - it should not come into contact with children or pets. If you get sap on your skin, wash immediately.
Very easy to grow - plant a sure-fire conversation piece and enjoy!
