I didn't even realize this one was varigated until I gave it a high nitrogen feed, and it grew new leaves speckled with white. You can see the older leaves are solid green. I'm guessing the flowers will be pink.

unusual Arabicum.

Doris,variegated plants tend to grow slower since they manufacture less chlorophyll in those variegated leaves.

*Very* nice, Melissa! I tend to love most variegated plants.

Will this one be able to take as much sun as a regular Adenium?
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

It's getting as much sun as the others, full from 8 am to 2 pm.

I'm going to keep the nitrogen high in this one's feeding.
