These are some plants from Anucha. I have always wanted a "Diamond Ring" swazicum hybrid and Anucha grafted one for me. He also did a graft of an Arabicum root stock w A. boehmianum (White form) for me.
The other 3 are Thai Soco's.

"Diamond Ring" grafted plant: in Sm. Black octagon pot.

Very Nice Adenium ! Smiling Isn't it difficult to grow Adenium in Canada ?
Do you have any trick to compensate the missing of sun ?
I'm from France, on the North of Alpes I don't have that much sun for my Adenium, they allways look like babies !!

Rick lives on a coastal island with Great tempered weather. He grows a good variety but like most of us we have to protect from winter, even though his is mild. Not all of Canada is cold.

It is not difficult Schisma, but I do have to keep them inside from Oct. - Mar. Might be able to stretch the length of time outside, but do not risk it. We can get some grey skies during Fall and in early spring, otherwise it is cold, but clear skies.
If I start seedlings in winter months, then I use supplemental light until they can be outside.

Ok, it is nearly the same for me, I keep it inside from October to May (July this year! Night are very cold).
I although use a light for seedling but it is broken now, fortunately my new office at work is oriented south-west !
I took all my adenium to the office, they totally rebirth !! (Big change, my flat is oriented North... Thumbs down )

Jeff,
It is very close to the Orchid mix that I use aslo. I use Fir bark (sm.), Grit #2 & Pumice. Could use Perlite or Diatomite in replace probably.
