Why do the leaves of my Adenium curl?

When the leaves of an Adenium curl over, this often means that the plant does not get enough nutrients.

We do not recommend cheap nutrition such as Pokon, which even works harmful.

Can I prune the Adenium in the winter?

It may be possible, even if the plant will have difficulty recovering, but we strongly advise against this. It is best to prune the Adenium in early autumn or from mid spring, when the plant has a good chance to recover.

Can I prune the Adenium in the summer?

This is also possible, but we advise against it, because Summer is the growing season. If you do it anyway, you can expect the plant to grow or flower little in summer. We always recommend pruning the plant in early autumn or from mid-spring onwards.

How long does an Adenium live?

An Adenium lives for decades, so you don't have to worry that your well-groomed Adenium won't live long.

How do I care for an Adenium?

An Adenium loves a warm place with lots of sunlight, a good breeding ground and also supplementary feeding. A good breeding ground can be provided by means of Florentus Mediterranean Nutrition. This ensures good rooting and provision of the right nutrient base. We also recommend supplementary feeding with 'Ultra Focus', this is high quality Mediterranean plant nutrition that provides extra strength and health. This ensures that the plant retains its beautiful deep colours.

The Adenium can start flowering in winter, and continues all the way through to autumn, so it is a very long bloomer!

Does the Adenium have to be pruned? How?

Around winter and spring you can prune the Adenium by removing the dead parts. You can also prune back shoots that have grown too long.

Can the Adenium be planted from seed?

Yes, when a fertilized (adult) Adenium seed gives off, when harvested fresh it can be used to grow new Adeniums.

When can the seeds be harvested from the Adenium?

It takes a number of years before an Adenium seed starts to give off. The older the Adenium, the better the quality of the seeds will be. To harvest the seeds, we advise against picking the seeds from the plant. Instead, it is best to put a bag around the Adenium to catch the seeds when they are released from the plant. This is necessary because otherwise they will fly into the air.

What kind of soil does the Adenium need?

We recommend using soil with an airy structure and provided with basic nutrients. For this purpose we recommend Florentus Mediterranean soil, which contains everything the plant needs, except supplementary nutrients.

Why are my Adenium leaves yellow? Why are the leaves falling off?

It can have several causes for the leaves to turn yellow or fall off. The main causes are malnutrition, over-watering or under-watering. Check that the root ball is moist but not soaking wet. And if the soil is poor in nutrients or you have never added any, we recommend that you supplement with Ultra Focus, a complex nutrition for Mediterranean plants.

Why doesn't my Adenium bloom?

The main cause for an Adenium not flowering is that the plant does not get enough light. Provide a sunny spot. Also a cause can be that the plant is still recovering from e.g. repotting or pruning, if this has happened.
