Hello Everyone!
Is anyone else getting the adenium fever!!! Has anyone ever grown one of the black bloom ones? If you have a picture I'd love to see what they really look like.

Very nice picotee, and so round.

I have a "black" that I guess I didn't fertilize right, the buds dropped off. It's been drying out in a back corner of the living room for a while. I might start watering it soon with bloom booster fertilizer. Supposedly that's how the professionals get those amazing all-flowers plants for the shows, stop all watering for three to five months, then shoo them with bloom booster. We shall see....

OMG that Poseidon is beautiful! I'm so jealous. I may have to try to get my hands on one later this year.
