Adenium Obesum 'Desert Rose'
Adenium obesum, also known as Desert Rose, is a flowering succulent plant native to East Africa. It is known for its attractive, glossy, dark green leaves and its large, showy, trumpet-shaped flowers that come in a variety of colors including pink, red, and white. The leaves can reach up to 2-3 inches in length and width. It is a slow-growing plant that can reach up to 2-3 feet in height and width when grown indoors.
To care for your Desert Rose, place it in a well-lit room with bright, indirect sunlight. It prefers temperatures between 60-85°F, and humidity between 40-60%. Water your plant when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch, and be sure not to over-water as this can lead to root rot. Use a well-draining potting mix and ensure proper drainage. Fertilize the plant every 4-6 weeks with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer during the growing season.
Adenium obesum is considered non-toxic and safe for children and pets. It's important to keep in mind that it prefers moderate to high humidity and consistent moisture to grow well. It will also benefit from regular misting and wiping the leaves with a damp cloth.
