My first adeneium. This is a mature 8 year old (?) plant from Mike. Are these flower BUDS?!

We're heading into some cold nights below 50 for a couple of nights. Should I bring it in for protection??

Shrug! They look like flower buds to me and yes, I think that you should take them in for protection. They are tropicals and don't like being cold.

Thanks Deborah. I think the Plumeria are coming in for the weekend and so will the Adenium. Then it's back outside in the day when the temps hit in the 80's. It's that Back and Forth time of year.

I would catch a cold in those temp swings! I'm accustomed to a night/day swing of only nine or ten degrees. Guess I'm spoiled. Balances out with the rare windy day, ahem...
