yeah ...hate to say it ....its rot ...and it will get worse ...let it go too long it will kill the entire plant ....
may be able to save it though ....

#6 is the graft - that stepped ring like circle around the stem ...lower part is the rootstock ...upper part is the graft

to save the rootstock (but loose the graft) you will need to cut just below the "ring" ....keep taking slices until only white remains .... use a clean cutting tool ...rinse with alcohol, dry between cuts

coat any cuts with a fungicide ..... keep cuts dry - allow the cut to callous over before returning to outside

@sedumzz do you have a picture of the entire plant? The before and after?

Praying 🙏 you are able to save it!

@sedumzz if you have longer healthy branches from the graft. Please preserve those. You can let them callous and plant later (although I have full disclosure I have a hard time growing adeniums from cuttings.) Or buy good sized seedlings that you can Graft them to. You will only need 2 to 3 inches of branches to Use as grafts (flat grafts).

I am worried about my one beautiful grafted one that I broke the roots. So I have let the roots callous and I checked there were no rots on the calloused part. I just now repotted it with mostly perlite mixed with sand and Put some rocks on top following closely the instructions of our more experienced adeniums members Here.

Then I just bought a really good sized seedling with multi tips from Walmart and plan to graft my "graft cuttings". It might not be successful but it is worth trying to save the grafts since I have nothing to loose but more to gain.Just in case the current rootstock will not develop roots and will start to rot, I will have back ups. I figure if I graft 6 maybe 1 or 2 will be successful?

@sedumzz I will use the right one to graft my "graft cuttings". I guess some grafts can be as small as 1 inch.


In the plumeria world if you buy an expensive cutting, you can send It to some nursery to get grafted. The nursery will provide the seedling and graft it, then you pay for the cost of the seedlings and the fee to graft it.

I'm new to adeniums so not sure if there is such kind of service for adeniums from local nurseries that grow adeniums.
