Too much or too little water

just so you know ...adenium leaves are deciduous with cooler temperatures, changes in moisture & changes in lighting

The soil is dry up to the top of my index finger. I watered it last Saturday. Do you think I should water it today. Thanks Thank You!

Outside during the day. I take it in at night.

some nights in the 50's . I am afraid that if it rains over night the plant will get too much water. I keep it on the deck and the deck is not covered.

I would leave your plant(s) outside ..... a few hours at or slightly below 50° is safe .... temperatures around 45° is risky ...temps at or below 32° is fatal

water thoroughly today ...then once every 7-10 days or so .... if it rains, count as a watering day

as temperatures climb above 90° step up watering - water once every 5-7 days or so ...temperatures around 100° water once every 3-5 days
