I am a bit hesitate, wether it is the right time to cut my adenium. I want to have more branches. I live in Thailand, its always summer, so I guess time does not matter.

Please let me know if and where I can cut it.
As indicated by my finger?

Where you live. You can cut at most anytime. Best when growing really well.
Cut it where you have your finger. In later years you will be able to cut it higher up on new branches produced from this cutting job.

Nice plant.

You can also try and root the cutting. Just don't let the soil dry out. But again it must be quick draining soil to root the cutting. Set it in semi shade for about 3weeks
