I have two versions of the Desert Rose, single-stemmed and a multi-stemmed plants. The single-stem may be in the process of growing branches, but unless there are well-formed branches present, they stay in the single-stem category. Three of my plants have bloomed and all the blooms have been similar. That's no guarantee that those yet to bloom will be the same, but they probably will. These plants average 16-18" tall, have fat caudices, and are well-rooted. Single-stemmed plants are priced at $12, and multi-stemmed plants are priced at $14. T-Mail me if you have interest.

Thank you, all. These plants just seem to grow themselves. I am simply the "nurse" to help them along.

Ken, what size pot do you recommend for the plants you're sending me? (I'd like to keep them smaller rather than larger, if that's a possibility)

They were growing in 1 gal. nursery pots (which are about 3/4 gal). These pots are about 8" wide and 10" deep. Since the obesum has such a large/long root system, my plants seem to grow better in deep rather than shallow pots.

Thank You! Yes, Ibis, these are the 17 plants grown from seed (now down to 14). These are the first and the only adeniums I have ever grown. They have been fun to watch as they progressed from tiny seedlings to nice size plants (can I call the plants "handsome"?). My "Green Giant" is now over 30" tall and just loaded with flowers/buds. It is finally starting to branch.
