Greetings from southeast Mexico. My wife and I have been tending adeniums over the last year. Our location seems to be ideal for growth and blooms.

My question is more of a curiosity than technical. Our very first adenium has always given us white blooms. However, I moved my potted plants to new locations a couple of days ago and placed my white adenium next to a potted dark pink vinca. Today, three out of the four white blooms are tinged with pink. They are beautiful! Do adenium plant blooms change color over life? My wife is convinced that the color change was brought about by placement next to the vinca. Magica!!

Thanks for any info or hypothesis you can provide to satiate my curiosity!
