Adam, that is wonderful and nice caudex.
We would not find them here.
I have heard of some people finding them at Lowes in the U.S.. In fact a fella just got two beautiful pa,nts with the very thin 'Somalense' type leaf.
Wish we could find them like your and others.

Hi, Adam!.. Welcome! This is your first Adenium? Oboy. The bloom might be similar to this ---- And, aha! I looked more closely to your photos, it looks like a grafted red with the root stock growing stems, so you will most likely have two colors. I say red because some of the leaves are reddish. Be sure to post photos when it does bloom!

This is not my first adenium. My first one is one I got at walmart last winter. I'm trying to save it I cut a bunch of the top off. I was watering it when it didn't have any leaves. *Blush* Then after unpotting it to check the roots I found out that some of the roots had rotted. So I cut away the rotted roots and dusted with cimmion and let it dry for about a week. Then I potted it up again and misting it.

Still waiting for it to wake up from its dormancy for this 2014...hopefully our mid to high 90's this week will jolt it awake! Hilarious!
