    I love adenium too. In my colection there are about thirty but only four of them are blooming. I can't wait to see others bloom. All of them me and my friends grown them from seeds.
    I hope one of them will be red like yours.

    Very nice coloured adenium. Adenium are very suitable for bonsai especially if they are grown from seeds. And they also make spectacular plants with various colours grafted onto the main plant. I have seen some plants with as many as four different colours grafted on.

    My Adenium isn't doing all that well this year. Don't know why. It did very nicely last year. Love the red there, Darren

    hello pavel, thanks ... sorry to heard about that, there r some reason maybe you're plant not getting enough lights & fertilize ? did you repot every 2yrs ? and pruning back 1 to 2". Temperature never below 40 degrees. In the winter u need to bring your plant indoor place to the South side sunny window. I never worry about winter be'cz I lived in Southern California warm all yrs round j/k. I think you live in East Side more colder temperature drop down below 40 dgrees. that's why the plant isnt doing well.

    It did fine in its current location last summer so I don't think temps or lighting should be an issue. I repotted last summer but did very little in the way of pruning as it wasn't showing any strong growth spurt. Winter it does come inside -- no choice there unless I want a frozen plant.
