Hello everyone. This my first post here, and I just wanted to say hello. I'm a Midwest plant hobbiest, my favorite by far being my adeniums. This is a picture I just took of my first one, (purchased 5-6 years ago now.) Thanks for reading.

I tip my hat to you. Welcome!
That is really gnarly and has been shaped really well. Do you have others? We love pics.
Do you grow from seed ? I have not been able to do that. So I have acquired older root stock I have to wait till next spring to try grafting for my weather is cooling at night.

Thank you everyone, I've struggled with it a little, so it's nice that it seems to be working out. I do have a few others, and three seedlings that were planted in the spring. I don't usually have the best luck starting anything from seed though. ( hopefully that will change since I'm setting up a tabletop greenhouse this winter Big Grin ) I'm going to add a photo of one that has decided to bloom mid september.
