Re: Adenium obesum from seed

I put my seeds in water, together with some soap and cinnamon. I kept them in around 25°C in that water for a couple of days and then peeled of the skin from the seeds. Interesting, I did a little reading/research about Adenium before buying the seeds, but I don't recall anything about soaking them...

Re: Adenium obesum from seed

I tried growing some of these from seed, bought off ebay, but they never germinated! Potting mix was 33% loamy soil, 33% perlite, 33% horticultural grit, in a propagator with bottom heat and covered, compost was kept just moist but not wet as the growing advice instructed. Can I ask what set up you...

Re: Adenium obesum from seed

I made some re-potting in the weekend and a couple of my plants ended up in bonsai-pots :)

This one is nearly 100 days old and looks like this:

Also impressive. Are you using artificial light? What's the potting medium?
I use 25% ordinary flower soil and 75% cat litter clay. Yes, all my seedlings for this season grow in only LED-light and they have around 30 deg C in daytime and around 20 at night.

Nicely coloured spines!
I've never had one of this, but yes, the spines have nice color when you look up close :)
