Sometime back I posted that I had found nine adenium plants at the local box store that were in bad shape. With the help from ATP forum members, I repotted and have watched them grow and several are beginning to have blooms. Pictures 1 and 2 are of the rescued plants. They are looking great and have several blooms. Picture 3 is a bloom from my first adenium purchased two years ago. I have all the plants in an area that gets full sun for most of the day. Right now in south Louisiana the sun can be quite brutal but these plants seem to enjoy it. This morning the temps are in the mid 80's, it's overcast, and the humidity is above 80%. I find it comfortable for a day in July.

The blooms of your very first adenium and your rescues are lovely. I like both the rounded and star-shapes. But I must say, the caudex on the DR in second photo has a lot of character and I look forward to seeing pictures of its growth as time passes. Keep up the good work. Happy growing!

You have done a great job with your plants.
I rescued some plants a couple of months ago. I pruned them back and they are leafing out. I M rooting the cuttings. Smiling
