Adenium, the wonderful and entrancing African plant

The Desert Rose, also known as Adenium obesum, is a plant of exotic origin. This name seems to derive from Aden, which designates the Gulf region of the same name that delimits the entrance to the Red Sea from the Indian Ocean.
At first glance may not seem like it, it is a succulent: it is very common in African areas where it is also called "Oleander of Madagascar" because of the similarity of the flowers.
The latter stand out among the leaves thanks to their particular shape; they are very showy and composed of 5 petals with a color that varies from white to deep pink. They blend from spring to autumn and make this plant spectacular in itself, thanks to its sturdy trunk that brings back to tropical atmospheres. The flowers follow small arcuate fruits containing dark-colored seeds.
The Adenium prefers sunny and bright environments with temperatures around 20 degrees, not too dry and away from drafts of cold air. Love loose, dry, rich and well drained soils. It is not very demanding of irrigation, and it also resists to short periods of drought, thanks to its trunk that (like that of baobabs, to which it looks very much in its natural habitat) acts as a water reservoir. From April to September, to ensure an excellent flowering it should be fertilized with a rich fertilizer of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium.

Pianta bellissima arrivata dopo due giorni dall’ordine; imballata molto bene! Bellissimo il vaso in terracotta lavorato in Toscana.

Vaso molto bello esteticamente, non troppo pratico in quanto, quando si bagna la pianta, se non si sta attenti fuoriesce la terra
