|HI this is my second year of nurturing Adeniums. No flowers just about and leaves are yellowing and falling! I thought I had bugs in couple of them but now after spraying them no more little white bugs. WHAT AM I DOING WRONG? I love them and it kills me to see them struggle. HELP!|

|How old are the plants?|

|Aside from the age of the plants, what are their growing conditions? Indoors or outdoors? How much sun? How much water and fertilizer? Lots of variables to consider before proper advice can be offered. Can you post a pic of your plants?|
Thanks! And welcome to NGA!

| @sanda12. Do me a favor and go into your "profile" and put your location, city/state/USDA zone. Location can be so important when asking questions or giving advice. Once you have entered this info., each time you post something, we'll know where you are.|
@Carter is exactly right. We'll have to know your growing conditions and your growing routine in as much detail as possible. As they say: "A photo is worth a thousand words", so show us some photos of what's going on.
You have perhaps seen some of the posts and some of the photos of my (now) 14 mo. old Adenium obesum plants. Apparently, this is what you want to see. In reality, you have been growing Adenium plants longer than I, so I sure can't say my success was due to knowing anything special. I am strictly a novice when it comes to these plants.

Pic help us see how the plants are doing. Is your soil quick drying? What you add to your soil for your area is a big thing. Also what type of fertilizer and how often. When was the last time you re potted? Are you using the rule of 2.5" from the pot to the caudex all the way around. Some use a 3" to 5" deep pot. Have your ever pruned for more branches and flowers? How do you water and how often.
