Adenium obesum

Adenium hasn't always been a permanent resident in my collection. My greenhouse isn't really kept warm enough for them to survive the Winter reliably. This plant originates from a small specimen which I bought in 1989. It rotted in 1993, but I managed to root a small fragment, which has finally flowered this year.

So long as they are kept warm, Adenium can be watered well and will not give any problems, and will grow at lot faster than mine do.
