Well, I found the profile page and put a nice picture of my Adenium obesum 'Desert Rose'
while it was blooming.
Don't judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds that you plant.

Hilarious! Hurray!
Thank you!
I see Will has a picture now Thumbs up

And you're right Cal, this is no ordinary daisy--outstanding rock garden plant! hard to find, and kinda iffy on the winter survival for me, so I was thrilled to find another one after the wicked winter of 16/17

Hello Dirt @dirtdorphins I actually got that 'Desert Rose' back in about 2017 after dealing with
3 floods in 27 months the last being Hurricane Harvey which gave us 5 feet of water in our
house. That is why we are now living in a rental house and all of my plants are in containers.
Normally the only thing I need to do with the 'Desert Rose' is to move it close to the house in
the winter because we don't get that many freezes. I think we did move it into the house a
couple of times last year when it got really freezing cold. We will see what happens this year
because I have more Adenium/Adenia and we have 4 cats so overwintering in the house is
a little more tricky.

Yeah, that was some serious flooding!
I have a similar problem with cats and the indoor jungle...wish I could have a greenhouse.
