|Can you plant the desert rose in just a crushed stone with out potting soil. Actually it is a bonsai mix without the soil.|

Welcome to NGA, Hopeful!
I have tried growing adenium seedlings (desert rose) in gritty, soil-less mix, but wasn't happy with it. The plant needs to be fertilized with every watering, otherwise it will be stunted. However, if you want to keep the plant compact, then the gritty mix would be okay. If you live in a hot dry climate, you would have to water once or twice a day.
Hope this helps. Please feel free to ask more questions in the Adenium forum.
