I bought a Desert Rose at two of your stores, but none of the plants in stock had any info about the plant or its care. Please help me find this info. I also bought a Bromeiliad with the same problem.

Desert rose likes lots of sunshine and fast draining soil. Since your winter's get cold, and desert rose is from Africa and likes the heat, plant yours in a container that you can move indoors during the winter months. Use cactus potting soil instead of regular potting soil so that the roots can dry out between waterings. Water every 7 days or so to keep your plant hydrated. It should bloom and grow without much additional care. Enjoy!
