Hello, some of you who that grow cacti succulents might know me from the cactus and succulents forum, to others, i have 6,5 years experience growing cacti and succulents. My collection is located in the balkans, and thus a lot of my plants are dutch. It was comprise of cacti, aloeae, crassulaceae , agaveae, and recently i began collecting apocyanaceae and euphorbiaceae succulent plants.
Among my most recent is a medium sized dutch adenium, with unusually thin leaves, placed in a fairly shallow pot, in soil which believe is too organic and water retaining , likely unsuitable for this type of succulent plant. From what i saw, its probably peat and marble rocks.
Would like advice on if and how regarding the repot, consider that the only experience repotting spurge and milkweed succulents is a euphorbia trigona rubra with a tiny root (unlike the adenium in question) placed in a large pot with humus soil/vermicompost.
I would also appreciate advice in its watering regime as well, and please compare it to other plants(ive killed a pachypodium with overwatering due to bad advice - my new one is watered frequently, but with a very small amount).
