Hello, my name is William. I loved "adenium" when I was young but I got serious in cultivating them about 8 years ago. It was a terrible experience when many gardn nurseries, especially those from Sungai Buloh, Kelana Jaya or those from Batu Pahat, Johor or even Kuantan in Pahang, taught me the wrong way of using different types of media (soil) to grow this plant. In fact, a "garden nursery" people does not even know how to grow "adenium" in the first place! This is shocking as we always thought that they ARE the EXPERT, the "specialist" whom we can depend on to give us pointers to help us taking care of the plant better!
The biggest problem of the plant is that it rot easily and it seems like the size got stranded and it never grow big (caudex) anymore. What you get was the branch that outgrown the body! The worst part was that the adenium plant did not flower for years!!! From here I took this opportunity to learn everything about this plant and this hobby of mine has made me a big fan of adenium, just like how many of you out there who loves "bonsai" plant.
What is the difference between "bonsai" and "adenium"? Both are the same but both you must take care of its growth so that it grow according to what you want them to be. There is "bonsai adenium" which I will not cultivate yet but I will help you to learn the proper way of taking care of "adenium" and making this plant your favourite plant at home. In fact, planting flower is not a "chores". It is just like taking care of a house (washing clothes, sweeping the floor etc.), but it is also a commitment and enjoyment to watch this beautiful plant grow and flower for you.
I sincerely hope all of you to come back and visit my web blog from time to time and we will have more Adenium multi-lapping petals and many other adeniums plant up for sale by early January 2011.Till then, take care!
