Great banner, James. Thumbs up
They look very happy.

How old are your plants & what do you do
to keep them happy?

They're the most challenging for me.
Lost my first to overwatering & another with a large
caudex to sunburn. Now I'm very protective. Rolling my eyes.

I only get to see adeniums in conservatory settings, single plants with a few blooms open at any one time, so seeing groups of blooms like this is a treat Smiling Thumbs up

Oldest plant around 20 years

To keep them happy

a minimum of 6 hours sun

never allow plants to sit in water

in the summer - water adenium like a tropical ...in the winter - water adenium like a cacti

@Browneyedsusan ....Yes, I do .. two types ...with every repot (once every 2-3 years) will layer in slow release Osmocote NPK 14-14-14 ...... then during the summer (only) will use Miracle-Gro All Purpose NPK 24-8-16 at every other watering to saturation

when frost or freeze threatens will cease fertilizing until next spring

@deepsouth

James, sorry didn't see this earlier. Thanks for the good info.
I killed a beautiful plant when first growing them by overwatering,
but learned my lesson.

Though probably need to feed more. I'll use your recipe. Thumbs up
