Desert Rose Plant
I saw this plant in the Philippines and I’ve fallen in love with the flowers. They were very eye-catching.
This plant is called Adenium Obesum or more commonly known as desert rose. It is a tropical flowering plant. It is a succulent, which requires copious amount of watering but it must not be allowed to stand on water, thus a free-draining soil is advised.
It likes hot climate or temperature, although with proper care, it can be grown anywhere. It is a beautiful house plant in colder countries. It should be placed by the window sill, where it can catch a daily dose of sunlight.
Pruning in the spring will prevent the plant from going too leggy.
