I asked my friends in Australia if I could post some photo's of two plants that they where digging up from their garden to put in Huge Bowls. This is truly an amazing job and what fantastic plants.

First two photo's are of the most recent one they dug up.

Wow, Rick! Thanks for sharing these pics. I had thought to grow my adeniums in raised beds but wasn't willing to do the extra work and buy materials to keep slugs, snails, weeds, chickens and cats out of them. But to get faster growth and large caudexes would certainly be worth the effort! Angel

Wow! What beautiful plants! I have been pondering on putting one in the ground here just to see what happens. There is one a few blocks away that is fairly large--maybe 5 ft tall. Maybe i'll have one that large by the time I am 70 or 80. Thumbs up

Holy moly -- that is truly impressive! How long does it take for a plant to get to that size (asked the newbie adenium owner) ?

I am not sure of the age. My friend has been growing Adeniums and producing remarkable crosses for many years.
They have Adeniums, Plumeria & Pachypodiums as part of their landscape in their garden.
