Euphorbia, Datura and Brugmansia are other plants with toxic sap.

Certainly looks more interesting with the stone sited in there, maybe 'we need a plant in a nice pot thread ' :grin: .
Maybe you are right!
Let the mods decide if there is a place for a main thread named: "plant in a nice pot" :)

Re: Adenium obesum from seed

Nice plants Christer, I read years ago that these plants and Pachypodiuns can be cultivated and used as house plants. Do you agree with this ? Cheers I have just started with this genus, but as far as I know you can use them as house plants. Some of them needs a resting time and will lose their lea...
