Yes, I understood it to be of Mark's also.
It is very good information and much of which many of us do not know or atleast practice.
Thanks for posting this for all to see, as many may not have Mark's book.

This is a good reference for people to be able to read and gain a better understanding of ADENIUM growth.
Great article. Thanks for archiving it here.
"Many times a day I realize how much my own outer and inner life is built upon the labors of my fellow men, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert myself in order to give in return as much as I received"
I refer to this article a lot, so when I read the title of this thread I knew immediately that it was Dr. Dimmit's. I'm still a newbie regards raising Adeniums, so when I'm ready to explore beyond Obesums, then I'll acquire Dr. Dimmit's book.
TY for the bit of info... very useful for us "newbies" who are unable to get the book. I'm playing "sponge" and absorbing all the info I can get...I really like these plants and hope I can keep at least a few growing!
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.....
I got these Adeniums at Ace Hardware yesterday for $10.
No idea of the color. There are 3 leggy plants in one pot. I've already pruned them. Just waiting for my order of coir to come so I can repot them, and to root the cuttings from these and my other plant.
Thank you very much for the link, I will practice my english by reading it !
I am new to that forum, looking for some information about adenium growing.
I do not find any French language forum about it.
