Woww Smiling that's a big adenium, 4 pod may confirm it is very healthy :)

Does he lost his leafs because of using energy for flowers/pods ?

Rainbow said:Good news! I soaked 10 seeds (5 from each pod) in a bowl of H2O/H2O2 for over a 24-hour period and every one of them sprouted roots. Hurray! Hurray!


Missed this first time thru. Germinated in 24 hours? Wow.

Hi, no the leaves didn't fall, except in winter 2015. But the pods still in evolution. And as seen on some pictures, I got not only new leaves at spring 2016, but also flowers, and at the same time, the pods "explosion" MAGIC !!!

Have a nice WE. Michel

Oh yes, I didn't seen Michel is living in France too ! Same country but totally not the same weather,
Living in Provence should be perfect for Adenium growing ! Lucky you ! Smiling Thumbs up

Michel, did you already give all seeds to some friend or do you always have some ?
( Kadie (Rainbow) already propose to send me some seeds, but it is quite complicated from US to France.)

Our first taste of Rose' was at a villa in Provence, Bandol to be exact. We fell in love with that wine then and there. This was two decades before Rose' from France was even seen in the USA. We always look for Provence Rose' when shopping for wine. Bandol Rose' is at the top of the class but can get pricey. Sighing!

Yes Adrien I can help you, you have received a message. (I still have about 50 seeds, but not yet tested by me ..).

Best.

You are right Ken, Bandol is a famous, and very tasty Rose'. Not so fare form us. Not cheap, but also not so expensive. In the USA, the price must be quite high.

I'm leaving near Aix en Provence, in the country side, very near (a few km) from a lot of "Châteaux" and if 30 year ago they used to make red wine, now they are doing perfect rose's.

Sincerely. Michel

I agree

Good luck! I started some from seed in March or so and they are VERY SLOW growing for me. They are only about 3 inches tall. I now have them in my greenhouse and will bring them in my basement in October.

@DavidLMO
My seed pods in this post did not ripen until mid-June. If I'm not mistaken, the seeds I sent you was Rinoa's "Star." And we both started the same variety of seeds in March.

I had planted my seeds in an 8" panterra bowl community crib in a mix of potting soil, perlite, and orchid seedling bark fines (2:1:1). I transplanted them when they were 2 months old into 6" pots in the same soil mix, but with bone meal and a slow-release fertilizer incorporated. And now, at age 5 months they are showing flower buds. The caudex of "Star" is not very plump at this time. I will post pictures when the buds open.

At least I learned my lesson and over winter I will NOT water too much. I kilt my one and only large specimen that up to that time had done well.

I now have like 8 (I think) and hopefully one or two will do well for me.

BTW - thanks again Kadie (OT - how are the Datura doing?)

You're very welcome, David! Glad you have 8 of the 10 growing. The daturas have very lovely flowers. There is one purple double that is so exquisite...but it doesn't seem to have a nice fragrance. I have plenty of seeds to grow (thank you) and will plant them after our 2-month rainy season...we're half-way through.

Great!! Datura can be flaky on the scent part. I am glad though that you got some doubles - they are pretty. My doubles did not come up. heh Nor did my creme triples. Did I send you some of those seeds?

Back to the adeniums...mine are growing fine. Just slow as all get out and as such they are all quite small. Which is fine with me cause in 8 weeks!!!! Sighing! I will be bringing stuff in.

For you that is not an issue. hehe

Yes, you did send Cream Triple. Look forward to growing them!

Back to Adeniums...your seedlings are old enough to withstand drying out periods. So it is not necessary to keep them moist when you bring them in for the winter. But do watch for signs of the caudex wrinkling as that is a sign they need water asap.

WOW Rainbow you're getting buds after only 5 months ... I need your magic potion !! I never thaught it was possible to get flowers at 5 months, that's Great. Waiting for some pictures.

You repot them in 6"" pot at 2 months ?? .. means I've also to take care, my 1 month small caudex are in 1" pots . .(the grid)

Thanks. Michel
