One summer I was visiting a friend in Virginia. I casually turned on the cold water in the kitchen to wash my hands, and WOW!! WAH!!!! BRRRRRRRRR!! Her well water was freezing cold to me.

I find Adeniums have the same feelings toward temperatures as I do. So, please, all you Eskimos here, (no offense intended) give your plants tepid, warmish water.

I hate losing plants....I know they are "just plants" but when you nurse them along and baby them and get them to grow, bloom, and be pretty and they die....it's like losing a friend..... Crying

That is so true Melissa. Our well water comes out just as your friends.
Love that Adenium in the photo. Reminds me of Star of Yellow Dream.
Have a Wonderful Christmas and everyone else here on ATP.
All the best,
Rick
