Plant care General Detail:

A wild form from Somalia. A modern hybrid of Rene Van Wijk’s Adenium bohemianism and Karst Breugelman’s Adenium obesum var somalense. An interesting living fossil with severe spiky leaves and a huge caudex for protection against the elements and potential predators. Pink and white wax-like blossoms remain for a long time. Plants appear to be covered in blooms while they are in bloom.

One of the most sought-after plants in the world of bonsai. It is extremely resistant to drying out and has low humidity throughout the cooling-off time. Very slow growing, but slow growth is like aging great wine since this plant can live for 50 years or more!!

We recommend growing it in a humid climate, in full daylight outside or under grow lights, and at temperatures no lower than 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees F). Remove wasted flowers as well, as they tend to harbor germs over time, causing the rotting of blooms and crown components. A vibrant, vigorous specimen that is ready to beautify your house, office, or bonsai stand!

The Adenium Nova Somalense is a tiny plant that requires significantly less light than the Adenium Obesum. However, with the appropriate conditions, this plant can still grow to be quite enormous. The Adenium Nova Somalense prefers indirect light over direct light. This plant should have a deep rose or crimson color along the margins and some striping in the petals.

The Adenium Nova Somalense is a lovely, exotic, but simple-to-grow indoor house plant for the home or workplace. This succulent will bring a little of the outdoors inside with its thick, spiky trunk and vivid blossoms, making it suitable for both experienced and novice gardeners. It is indigenous to Somalia and Ethiopia, where it thrives in arid, sandy environments.

Adenium Somalense, often known as the desert rose, is a sensitive perennial shrub in the genus Adenium. The Adenium plant’s leaves are made up of two leaflets that are narrow mid-green colored leaves with rachises.

On the stem, the two leaflets are opposite each other. The Adenium blossoms are little red to reddish-purple flowers with a very fragrant aroma. Seeds begin to develop fruit about one month after flowering and continue to mature for several months after the fruit is set.

The Adenium is essentially a tree as an indoor plant and should be handled as such. It will take time and dedication to grow your Adenium into a huge tree that produces exotic blossoms worth the effort. It is quite easy to get started. Plant it in good potting compost in a well-lit spot – an east or west-facing window is great because it receives all-day sunlight.

Watering is essential; do not allow the soil to dry up, but do not overwater as this will quickly cause root rot. And, once you see flower buds forming, don’t be hesitant to gently assist your plant. Remember, if you make a mistake, don’t throw away the plant just yet… Try deflating it, but only if you’re sure what you’re doing!
