I have had this desert Rose for a long time. Given to me by my daughter, Valerie. Now she has a cutting from her desert Rose.

I had an idea of how to go about re-potting my adenium but was scared to cut too much root. After watching several videos I acquired the courage to do it. Well, I have done it today and my adenium is now drying before I plant it in a proper container when it cures.

Would love to see your updates! I have done similar root trimming, but I did it while my plant was dormant. I was almost so regretful after I have done the trim, I thought I have done wrong, just took awhile to stay longer in dormancy, but it quickly bounced back when warm weather returned in late Spring. I did also some branch pruning so it was nerve wracking for me Smiling
