|I love adenium arabicum varieties especially the super fat trunks! I have several and are always on the lookout for old and new plants. Does anyone have any seeds or plants for sale/postage? New to this forum site. I will post some of my plants later! Thanks!|

|I want to post a reminder that it's usually a good idea to get to know a brand new member first, before agreeing to a trade. It's just a sad fact of life that there are scammers out there who sign up for an account and immediately ask for plants.|
I'm not saying that this new member here is a scammer. What I am saying is that everyone should educate themselves on the member before proceeding. Let the member establish themselves a little bit before you send anything. There have been too many people get burned and I don't want to see it happen.

|I buy seeds from adenium_ko on ebay. He's very honest and reliable. Desert Night Fork is a good plant. Funny name!|
Hawaiiplantgo-- do you have a 'normal' first name?

|Look really good. A fertilizer ratio of 1-2-3 might make the caudex bigger. Or, the Asians cut off all the leaves regularly,,,, I thimmk. I'll go ask them! To make more caudex, always growing new leaves would use up the excess nitrogen of a 10-10-10 fertilizer.|

|Thanks Melissa, I've been using 6-4-6 fish/kelp pelets. The little Thai one I say likes to run around naked, it grows a full set of leaves but for some reason it will drop them all at once and be bare a couple of weeks before regrowing.|

|Arabicum go dormant. Obseum and most mixed types don't. Dormant is no leaves, let them be a bit on the dry side when they don't have leaves to perspire the wetness from the pot.|
The first number is for leaves. It should be lower than the other two, but you're doing fine!!!
