I have a bunch of adeniums I grew from seed that are now about 1.5 years old. I have given away maybe half of them but still have quite a few left. I would like to cut them back and repot them as their caudexes are pushing them out of the pot and some are leaning pretty good. Would it be ok to do this now or should I wait till dormancy? We still have another couple of months at least of growing season left. I think repotting them now is fine but I am not sure about cutting them back. This is my first experience with adeniums and I am still learning. They are all in six inch Kord pots.
If anyone in my area would like some they are free. I just don't want to try and ship them.
Thank you.

Michael , I think repotting and trimming now would be just fine. Like you said, there is plenty of hot weather growing season ahead of you. Nice plants Thumbs up Maybe you can find someone local to help you pot all those up and trim for a few plants. They look happy and healthy.
