Hello everyone. I'm new to forum. I'm sure there is a section to introduce but haven't found it yet. My name is Jenny.
I like a cottage garden (if I can stop my husband pulling out dormant plants every year. Making me start over...sigh LOL ) this year he is banned from going near it.

Anyway to point at hand. I bought an Adenium yesterday. A gorgeous red one. Loved it so much went back today and bought two more. PInk, and the other not opened yet, but does look like it is pink with darker edging. I have transplanted in terracotta pots. Small ones. Hopefully I have done that with no damage. Not a lot bigger than pot it came in, and as it slid out easily, I'm hoping it won't notice. I have been reading and learning as much as possible so that has led me here.
Is there a list on forum with names for different colours? I saw a photo on here of ' Blushing pink" so pretty, I will be looking out for it.
Hope to chat from time to time.

Hiya, Jenny. Welcome to the forum and welcome to NGA! Congratulations on your newest additions! Hurray!

Here is a link to a plant database search of Adeniums where there are (I believe) currently 3 pages of varieties/colors listed there. http://garden.org/plants/searc...

Feel free to post some photos of your new plants. We love photos here! Thumbs up

Yes, welcome Jenny. A good group of people follow this forum. Depending on the time of year there can be more frequenting at times, but it is always nice to have another plant enthusiast joining in. Please keep it up.
As James mentions about Database. Good place to search.

Welcome! Jenny! I'm just a lurker here as I only have two Adeniums. It would help if you would fill in your ID so we have an idea what climate you're in. We all are in different parts of the world, so have different growing contitions.

Thank you everyone. I think I have profile sorted. Sorry, should have said where I was from. I will have a look at link thank you James.
My plants are looking ok today. It's a very hot day here in Perth. I have resisted watering as they were quite wet after my transplanting, so I am hoping that is correct. I bought plants fro a shop that had them inside, so I have been very careful acclimatising them. They will get about 3 hours sun a day for a while...ok? i could move if that is not long enough. I have been looking around forum, such a lot of information. Well done everyone.

These are my plants. Do they look they are supposed to LOL. Does it take a while for flowers to open? I'm not sure wether the unopened flower is in shock from store, home etc. would it be better to cut that part of plant off?
I did read that they flower/grow quickly in right conditions. I'm not in any hurry I'm just wanting to get it right. They are so pretty. Especially flowering from such a tiny plant. Off to read some more Thank You!

Jenny,
They all look wonderful and the one with unopened bloom should be fine. Sometimes the blooms take quite awhile to open. Especially if they are triple or quad petaled blooms.
Transition with moving, different environment can effect grow and blooms, but I doubt this will be an issue for yours.

I have a friend in Australia and a wonderful woman, Sandy.
She grows amazing Adeniums and has a website. Super friendly person and always helpful.

Thank you Rick, I will look at web site.
Esperanza...the red one was first and I found it so attractive. I was drawn to it. I'm going to look after them and see how I go. Looking at the list of different colours there as so many and all beautiful. Particularly like the ruffled white one. I wonder if I will come across one LOL.

If you are actively trying to come across other varieties I have no doubt you will be successful. Before you know it you will be growing your own from seed and be completely addicted to them. Everyone of them have their own personalities and it is so much fun adding to the collection. My husband brought me home a white one day when he was in the dog house and I have been a hopeless addict ever since. Rolling on the floor laughing We have a great support group here to help out with that though!
