This is not an adenium but it is a caudiciform, Uncarina grandidieri , that another member traded for plumeria. Wasn't sure where to place this picture.

It was just a stick August 16th so was a bit surprised to find this little present this AM.. Hurray!

From the pictures I have seen on the net this is a beautiful plant.

Great job!! The leaves have a very peculiar odor.
It will get to be a big tree eventually but if you keep it in a large pot it won't grow so fast.

Would love to see it become a tree, I gave it a sniff but I didn't notice a scent, maybe when it gets a little bigger I can pick up the smell. Smiling
