The Q&A Archives: Desert Rose Blooms

Question: I can't get my Desert Rose to bloom. Looks green and healthy but, not flowers. SOS

Answer: Desert Rose (Adenium obesum) needs full sunshine in order to bloom well. Another critical element to success with the Desert Rose is restricted soil moisture. Remember that succulents require little water. To achieve optimum results requires both well drained soil and careful attention to avoid overwatering. Water should be withheld if day-time temperatures fall below 80oF or the weather is cool and cloudy. Make sure your desert rose gets adequate sunshine and very little water and it should bloom for you. Enjoy!
