Beautiful banner James!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

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.

If your jade plant looks happy, put down the watering can and walk away slowly.

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
