My Adenium obesum seedlings sown Autumn 2017 and Spring 2018. Although the seeds from this year were all from the same seller there is a big difference in the leaves, some being short and rounded, others being long and narrow. What would be the reason for this? The long narrow leaves seem unusual for Adeniums.
Into all sorts of exotic plants but with only having a conservatory I prefer to buy small young plants and miniature cacti.

Are yours "real" species or hybrids?

Mine are "Triple Flower" hybrids, but I have "real" species also :geek:

Hi, they were described as obesum seed but with a variety of flower colours so I presume that would mean that there at least some hybrids there. The real ones you describe will just have the natural pink colour?

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:
