This is from Facebook, and I believe it to be true. Haha, after all these years, I should be practicing this, but am just getting started!

2 months before you want the adenium to bloom,
1- Do not water the Plant for 2-3 weeks.
2-After end of 2-3 week dry period, water only with N-P-K 8-24-24 or orchid fertilizer instead of regular water for 3 days
3-, again stop watering until small flower buds start coming out.
4-Than you can start regular watering (2 to 3 times per week). Never let the water on the flowers, it could break the buds (Only around the Caudex)
In 2-3 weeks you will see many flowers coming

Thumbs up great info, I started this so I can go back to this later.

I have been overwatering my big one them, that's probably why it is not blooming.

I am not too diligent with fertilizer application, but so far it blooms happily once the super hot temps of June starts to come in. At this time when our humidity is so low, and temps so high going into triple digits, it can take as much frequent watering it can take...very, very, thirsty.

Mine too, I actually have to water it as often as I water my tomatoes :).

Well, of course any advice/directions must be adapted to your local. I believe this person lives in Thailand. Not over 95/100, and very humid, and not very windy.

If any of you miss Coconut (Melissa) she posted me in Facebook to say she had been banned for being rude, they surely have that wrong , I have known her since this program started and she has never been rude, maybe a little strange sometimes but arnt we all.

Trisha if you read this I hope you let her back this surely must be a mistake.

I know she posted an apology and felt her comment was misconstrued. I agree that I can't imagine her being rude on purpose. We will certainly miss her here.

This was an issue that was dealt with privately. I don't air anyone's dirty laundry publicly, and I'm sorry to see that it keeps creeping out in the open.

I will not comment because I respect people's privacy. Coconut announced she was leaving publicly. She is gone. End of story.
