Spray-N-Grow

I love this product! It makes wonderful difference in flowers and fruits.

BUT

Someone over on the Hibiscus forum, Malestrom(very sorry I cannot call your name! and I'm sure you-all know him) posted that Adeniums hate it. I saw the comment just after I'd really soaked my Adeniums, and sure enough, there went the leaves, yellow, then gone away. I guess the stubs will regrow leaves! wow.

So, I foolishly bought three Acai palms two years ago, and they haven't died yet, but they're staying small, growing slowly. I learned to keep them in a half inch of standing water. They're shivvering out on my deck now, much cooler here than along the Amazon River, I'm sure! And windier. And saltier. And Volcanic ashier.

Well, they are looking very unhappy too, and I think it's from the dousing I gave them with Spray-N-Grow.

Anyone have experience with this product on slow growing Tropicals?

I use it and all my plants love them. However, I have not grown Adeniums before.

Isaac, you could probably grow them in the ground.

I was having a hard time with my Desert Rose, it would get one leaf and it would turn yellow and fall off - forget blooms. I kept moving it around, and watering it less and less. I finally found a spot that gets direct sun all day and is up against a block wall that reflects even more heat, plus I put the pot up on a grate so it drains better and now - it is covered in leaves and blooms! I'm so happy with it. Keep moving it around till you find its 'spot' but also make sure it dries out between watering and has excellent drainage.

OK, thanks, now i just have to find one!!

I've an Adenium that's always over crowded by other plants and I dump loads of leaves around it, mainly for the other plants. It still keeps putting out some flowers. But it's definite it likes a lot of sun, good drainage, although it doesn't seem to need rich soil. If anything, it desn't like the compost/leaves I put around it.
