    default 2015 Season For Our Lovely Adenium Obesum

    Post by Joy on Mon 09 Nov 2015, 1:54 pm

    We had a colder than usual winter earlier this year & our Adenium obesum looked quite miserable when I came home from my longish stint in hospital. All its remaining leaves were dried out or discoloured. It seems as though every second winter it does tend to lose all its beautiful leaves, completely, This is a sort of a total renewal of its beautiful leaves.   but the process makes this lovely plant look as though it is dying. Not a good feeling at all. But I have learnt to relax & think of it as a normal happening. That is after I have thoroughly checked it for wet rot, of course. All good this time & now that the warmer weather is here it is sprouting its stunning new spring growth.

    Today it has been raining. Here are some very damp adenium obesum flowers. This beautiful plant is now well into its spring recovery from its winter rest by sprouting new leaf growth & opening its bright  pink warmer weather flowers.


    The newer images of the warmer weather flowers are still stuck in my Picasa3 site which I cannot access from my Wondows 10 PC. Today's pic was able to be processed using my Windows 8.1 laptop.

    The warmer weather is encouraging the adenium obesum to flower & continue with its lovely new leaf growth.

    Thank you Dawn. :thanks: :smile: Yes some images can stir memories both pleasant & sad.  :hug: :) We are so pleased to see how well the adenium obesum has recovered from the colder winter weather. It looked almost dead :faint:  but I gave it a dose of Magnesium sulphate (Epsom salts) & within a short while of some warmer weather, especially at night new green leaf shoots started to emerge along with some flower buds.  Now it's back in all its warm weather glory.  :bravo:   :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:

    Thanks BigBilly. You do seem to be having a mild winter so far. Our temps are very warm wih maximums in the 30s Celsius. Some areas of Australia are having heatwave conditions with temps in the 40sC. At least we sometimes have sea breezes to cool us down. The town is filling up wih holiday makers. People everyhere.
