I am new to this site and hope to be able to share some of my Adeniums, although most have finished for this year.
Looking forward to seeing everyone else's.

Still following this forum and watching. Wondering what will happen to my Adenium if I don't have any place to put it for the winter. It lives in my office. Any advice?.
Thanks. Ivy.

I'm still here too. Here's a pic of my seedlings from a year ago May. I took this one in the beginning of October and the one with buds already bloomed. Unfortunately, I'd moved it up on shelf and the wind or something knocked it off along with the blooms. The plant is ok though and that's more important.

I'm kind of amazed at the different shapes of the leaves. They were seeds from different types, I have it on the pots but don't remember now. I know the rounder leaves are seedlings from Black Fire, the long skinny leaves might be Belle Star. The skinny leafed one at the left is already putting out small branches at the bottom. The round leafed ones are not, and the other skinny leaf (far right) is heading for the moon, long and straight.

I was wondering if any of you think I should cut the main stem to get more branches? I'd like a caudex on these so don't want to do anything that will mess that up. I have 2 of them planted in basically pea gravel, there is only a small amount of soil at the bottom of the pot. The others are in a mix of soil and gravel. All of them came through the rainy season ok, so the drainage is working. I wanted to see if I got a larger caudex in just gravel.

Some Adenium species naturally make longer main stems. I would not cut them.

Hi, Ivy! Your plants should do fine where they are. A little less water for the chillier months, but an office is rather stable year round as to light and temperatures???

Thank you Melissa.
I guess that I will remove it from the window and place it on the shelf above my cubicle. Will be able to watch it better. Ivy.

I am here every day Melissa, just do not post as often but I am getting back to it, have had two skin Cancer surgeries, I was shocked at the one on my nose, you could put a marble in the hole they made, the other one needed 17 stitches in my forehead, but they are both healing just fine.
