That's terrible! Crying
What germination % should one expect from adeniums? These are self grown seeds .. so far this first baby is by far blasting past the rest.. though I see a few more about to bust out. Once i feel like I can be successful I will try more exotic ones...

the fresher the seed the better but they need to be kept at a good temp and not t moist or dry, the experts say even with old seed if they where treated correct 40-50% for OLD seed. unfortunately shipping seeds across the world they go threw extreams and that is why the seeds i have giving such low germination rates

the get in the cargo bays of airlines and become cold at 30,000 feet and then shipping trucks and containers and getting well over 100 deg so if you can have fresh from here 98% is not uncommon.

Mike I have one seedling about 8 to 10 inches high, nice green leaves but the stem is not strong enough to hold it up, the cordex is hard so no problem is there is there anything I can due other than prop it up.

Doris i am no expert but sounds to me like a few of mine. if you look at the base of the caudex does it look like Roberts? A lot of adeniums seeds are planted so shallow you can see the curve inward at the base, this is usually it has to be buried deeper due to none of the caudex is under ground and its just the roots that are holding it up. that is very stressful on the tiny roots. If this is not the case it sounds like it did not have the light it needed to grow short and strong if the plant dosnt have good light it stretches to reach the light and it becomes lanky. these are the 2 most common reasons that they don't like to stand with out a picture it is hard to tell. With both of these my recommendation is carefully sprinkle dirt around the plant 1/2 way up the caudex and be careful when watering it can up root and wash these little babies so fast best to sprites with a spray bottle or water from underneath.


these are the only reasons i can think about....just don't go re-potting when very small and dont feed it yet.most the time the 4th or 5th set of leaves are where you want to re-pot

Yup, not enough light and they get straggly tall. That's called "leggy"

And too much nitrogen they "turn into vines" as a friend commented.

Get a stick and tie up the errant plant. They prefer standing upright, even if they aren't strong enough to do that.

These seeds came off the big adenium that I did the pics on when I repotted it.. ... Didn't do anything but collect and plant. I don't have a variegated one. I hope I don't kill it!! Blinking Hilarious!

HI,
I had one like that, unfortunately I think it (was) is albino --with out chlorophyll it wont be able to live long. Mine got 2 sets of leaves and then just kind of faded away.
Sorry!
