Adenium obesum Assorted Colours Paper Pots

Buy now, pay later with


Assorted Adenium obesum is also known as Desert Rose or Fat Boy. This pack has a great mix of colours and they are lovely chunky little plants ready to be potted. It is a succulent shrub, evergreen in tropical climates and semi-deciduous to deciduous in colder climates. Adeniums are one of those plants that are pretty addictive. They are all so individual with all of them being quite unique in shape and form and they come in a range of colours. This pack has reds, whites and double star type flowers. These guys are low maintenance, love a full sun spot and require very little watering. The key to success with Adenium is to keep them on the dry side when it gets cold so go easy on the water when winter hits.

These babies come in paper pots, not our usual plastic tubes. The roots are enclosed in netting and can be planted straight into a pot with no mess or fuss.
