Your plant will ship in a 2” plastic nursery pot. Yours will be similar to those in the smaller picture. 

At present, these seedlings are healthy and are 2-3” tall (June 8, 21)

These plants were grown from a mixed collection of Adenium obesum seeds— therefore we cannot speculate as to what color they will bloom .

Desert rose is a beautiful and classic cuadiciform succulent. They are easy to grow and in my experience can be forgiving if watered too much.

Don’t let them get below 40F— that’s my official opinion.

Let them get a little root bound before repoting them— but not too root-bound. Take the time and search on google or Facebook succulent groups for a good desert rose soil mix— the Facebook crowd love to share their soil recipes.

This is a plant that you can have and enjoy for years to come.

Your desert rose will ship in a 2” black plastic nursery pot.
