@Ben_from_Denmark Lovey dubby beautiful blooms and caudex. I'm looking closely especially the second one, the flare on the petals are lovely. Looks like both are seedling grown, which make them even more special!

Thanks! Smiling You're right; they're both grown from seeds.

Thank You! desert roses are my latest obsession this year and I suspect for a few more years. If I manage to keep them alive.

They are both 3 years old. Sown and grown in a south faced window sill. I've got around 70 Adeniums, which are all grown indoor, and they are all distinct from each other. Love the diversity Lovey dubby

I also have one adenium which is around 3 years old but not have bloomed even once. Hopefully mine will also bloom shortly Lovey dubby

I hope so too Smiling .. But don't loose faith - genetic variety plays a big role. I started some 10 years ago. Some blooms in 2 years and some in 6 years. The largest one I've got bloomed as 5 year old. It still grows like crazy and last year I had to cut it down as it reached 1,8 meters in hight and 15 cm in diameter;

Amazing! My original ones I've had them already Blooming at 7 years old but nowhere as tall as that. If I had to guess, they were 2 to 3 years old when I got them.

I gave you 5 acorns so you can buy an adenium microbadge.

You should add your beautiful adeniums in the database.

That's a good problem to have, if they grow crazy. Are you able to buy a shallow clay pot? I had to put mine in heavier shallow partly glazed clay pots because I was tired of fixing them when the winds are strong.

Thanks Smiling .. They aren't all that large, but still it's quite a puzzle to fit them all in a sunny spot.
Would love to keep some of them outside, but it's too cold here.
