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!!!
