Hi I'm new here. I love Desert Roses and would like to know if anyone has ever tried hand pollinating one to obtain seeds.

Hi Skeita,

I don't know much about Desert Roses (Adenium obesum), but you might find out some specific information about them at the Adenium forum at this link:

http://allthingsplants.com/forums/view/adenium/

There are also some articles about Adeniums at this link:

My guess is that one or more participants on the Adenium forum can answer your question. I notice that some Adenium seed trading is going on.

Hi.

Here is a link to the procedure. It seems way more complicated than it really is, but is done well. I have tried the method and it worked beautifully.

And here is another link to a reputable adenium breeder that shows the steps one picture at a time.

Enjoy. Please let us know how things turned out.
