Here are a few pictures of my spring 2017 adeniums. I have 18 plants and can't stop adding more, just got a few seeds in. My next challenge is to learn how to trim them. I have some that are in need of trimming but I just don't have the courage to cut them- yet.
I did trim the ones that suffered cold damage and they have sprouted new branches. We just got a thunderstorm this morning so they do appear to have been drenched. They will dry out fast though.

Good growing John! Very pretty! Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

I know how you feel about trimming them down. I felt the same apprehension, but I did it in late Feb 2016, while plant is still dormant. Trimmed off some roots and some branches, really felt nerve wracking, don't know if I done right about it, but it did well come summertime. I had to trim off some roots, since I want to keep it in the same funky container it is growing in, too many small roots, got to allow some room for the new soil.
