Adenium obesum, also known as Desert Rose, is a succulent shrub native to Africa and the Middle East. It is a popular houseplant and bonsai tree due to its attractive flowers and unusual trunk shape. Here are some care tips to help you keep your Adenium obesum healthy and thriving:

Light: Adenium obesum prefers bright, indirect sunlight. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but too much can scorch the leaves. In low light conditions, it may not flower.

Water: Adenium obesum is drought-tolerant and should be watered sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out almost completely between watering. Overwatering can cause root rot and kill the plant.

Soil: Adenium obesum prefers a well-draining soil mix that is sandy and porous. You can use a cactus or succulent mix to provide the proper drainage.

Fertilizer: Adenium obesum should be fertilized sparingly, using a balanced fertilizer with low nitrogen content. Over-fertilizing can cause leaf burn and damage the roots.

Pruning: Adenium obesum can be pruned to control its shape and size. It is best to prune during the active growing season.

Propagation: Adenium obesum can be propagated through stem cuttings or by grafting. Stem cuttings should be allowed to dry for a few days before being planted in well-draining soil mix.

Pests: Adenium obesum can be prone to mealybugs and scale insects. Inspect the plant regularly and treat any pests promptly with an appropriate insecticide.

Temperature: Adenium obesum prefers warm temperatures between 65-85°F (18-29°C) and can be damaged by frost.

Following these care tips will help your Adenium obesum thrive and stay healthy.
