The tree in the photos in above post looks very large. It's not...click on the photo below to expand. The two large adeniums flanking the three trees in ceramic bowls are in 8" panterra bowls.

All you need to do is attach a little door so it looks like it is open and there is your beginning of your own "Shire" in Guam.

Kadie, are the two larger plants the ones that as seedlings, you cut the tap root off of?

Hilarious! I agree, just put a wooden rounded door on there and you'll be all set!

Rick, I did cut the tap root on both large adeniums when they were 6 weeks old. I'm pretty sure I cut the tap root of the 3 small ones as well. The small ones were from a batch of seeds that I had ordered from a Thailand vendor through Ebay. They were not fast growers so I decided to keep them small by placing in gritty mix in ceramic bowls.

The seeds of the larger adeniums came from a US vendor through Ebay, and they were my very first adenium seeds. And when they grew these large caudexes and succulent roots I thought all adeniums grew this large. Then come to find out in discussions on another thread that most seedlings do not have large caudexes.

I recently contacted the US vendor telling that I wanted to order the same kinds of adenium seeds. She informed me that she doesn't sell adeniums anymore. Sad I had sold most of my large adeniums, but I will keep the remaining few and isolate them from the Thailand trees in hopes of propogating seeds from them for root stock.
