One summer I was visiting a friend in Virginia. I casually turned on the cold water in the kitchen to wash my hands, and WOW!! WAH!!!! BRRRRRRRRR!! Her well water was freezing cold to me.

I find Adeniums have the same feelings toward temperatures as I do. So, please, all you Eskimos here, (no offense intended) give your plants tepid, warmish water.

I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they's like losing a friend..... Crying

That is so true Melissa. Our well water comes out just as your friends.
Love that Adenium in the photo. Reminds me of Star of Yellow Dream.
Have a Wonderful Christmas and everyone else here on ATP.
All the best,
