It’s apparently impossible to find low, wide pots where I live, but I wanted to repot my Adenium because its old pot was a bit too small. The roots were mashed up against the sides and the bottom of the one it was previously in. I ended up just potting it in a regular 20 cm terra-cotta pot. Now it shouldn’t dry out as quickly either. I had to water this one every other day.
I’ve shown the first picture before, but I just wanted to show you exactly how much my Adenium arabicum has grown since I bought it 3,5 years ago. It looks completely different with its tall branches and fat body. It has yet to flower for me, but right now it’s outdoors both day and night. That should help with the needed light and warmth. Maybe I’ll have to find a bigger pot to hopefully allow for more growth, too.
Hestu the Korok here is enjoying his first sunny day outside to catch some sun rays. He’s put on a few pounds since early spring when his leaves grew back. I still have to bring it inside when it gets cloudy and keep him indoors at night. If it experiences temperates below 15 degrees C for too long, it will most likely lose its leaves again and go dormant.
My Adenium is finally growing fresh new leaves! The old ones are pretty worn out too, so the new leaves came at the perfect time. I think watering more often was the right thing to do in this case. I didn’t want it to go dormant and lose all its leaves.
My Adenium arabicum is going dormant and losing its leaves one by one. The lack of sun probably had something to do with it. I still think it looks pretty.
A lovely view.
My Adenium arabicum is basking in the sun ☀️
He really perked up over the last couple of months.
I just gave away 1/3 of my plants and somehow it looks like I have more than I did before.
Hestu, the korok is enjoying the view. I hope to see him with flowers in his hair this summer.
