Desert Rose

Deland, FL

I have a Desert Rose plant that looks like it should be repotted. The roots are showing on top of the soil. Do you think it would be OK to repot it at this time of year? I live in Florida. At the current time it's not blooming.

Prairieville, LA(Zone 9a)

Adeniums should not be allowed to remain pot-bound....they like lots of room for their roots. It is fine to repot it now, Below is some info on care for you.

i have to root prune and top prune every fall to bring mine inside. every year, after i am done pruning, i put it back in the pot at a slightly higher elevation than what it was when i un-potted it. that way i get the bulbous bottom part to show more and more each year.
