Hi Guys,
Just three days ago bought five Grafted Adeniums paid $ US 15.60 cents/plant the vendor told me has treated with booster, fungicide and dried for 2 weeks.
one of the plants caudex base is a little soft, when I draw his attention to this problem he said it is not rotting my question is should I wait for 2 weeks
or not before I plant? this plant is supposed "Black Widow" and carries a code of C-33.
Regards
Prabhi Setty

I'd be a bit concerned if the caudex feels somewhat soft but I really don't know much about Adeniums. You might want to post on the Adenium Forum: http://garden.org/forums/view/... where some of our more knowledgeable Adenium growers might be able to offer advice.

Typically with Adeniums, if it is still young, it is more thirsty so maybe it wants some good moist well draining media now after its shipping journey. Do you know how old the root stock used for that grafted one? Can you post a photo of the actual state it is in, zoom the portion of the roots and the softening part if you can, so we can all see.

I think the root stocks may be 3 to 4 years old and would photograph the remaining 4 plants then upload them.
