Ha, I just recieved a White Angel from Khwarunee in Thailand. You know, sometimes the buds are as much fun as the flowers.

The top heavy might be from too much fertilizer and water. They grow just too fast if you spoil them!

Thanks for posting!!

What's the humidity? Are they in full sun? In a breeze? Adeniums love water if they are actively growing. Your green stems look like they are growing, therefore respiring, using water. If the leaves start turning sickly looking, dump them out of the pot immediately and check for rot.

They look OK to me---

They are in full sun and breezy weather. Its been in the high 50s at night but they are looking Good today. Branch not as soft and hanging over as a couple days ago. Maybe its the cold nights we been having. I'm telling you this Texas weather is unpredictable. Hot cold wet and muggy.

They don't like temperatures under 60. don't water until it hardens up. Glad they're better!!!

You simply live where the Great North can blow down your neck sometimes. I didn't like that about the States, so I moved to where the Great H storms can blow me off my feet sometimes! But only for one day at a time, every few years, or three times a year, or not for ten years at a time... At least there aren't those T things here.
