Here are some of the first flowers of my grafted Adenium 'Harry Potter', a new plant I bought on an eBay auction. I can't wait for it to fill out and make a big display of these flowers!
Adenium 'Harry Potter'
harry Potter is an awesome adenium
Very heavy bloomer and great looker too!!
Congrats on a great buy!
Whod you buy it from?
This is another one that is flowering up so far, Adenium 'Home Depot' (LOL). It does make a lot of flowers. The letter carrier was raving about it one day, asking about what it was...it was so ironic because little did she know that she was also delivering another Adenium in the box she was carrying!
Hi Malestrom, and howdy neighbor!
I bought Harry Potter from eBay vendor Adenium_Ko. Fast shipping and this one was I believe only 5 dollars. I paid I think about 20 clams for shipping. I have a couple other Adenium plants and a bunch of seedlings coming along from the Taiwanese vendor.
Do not expect seedlings to be true to the parent plant
They are usually true to species not flowering part
Sometimes youll get lucky and get a new one or a neat one.
Thanks for the information, I guess I didn't do my homework on the seeds. [sigh]
Thanks, I feel much better now. So what I can expect is a bunch of plants that may look like Adenium 'Home Depot'?
Nad once you have those awesome ones isolated, then you need to hone hone your grafting skills, so you can share with alll of your friends.
I wanted to add that Mr Ko is an excellent vendor if you dont mind the import fees.
It pays to buy many when paying for the certificates.
Burriedtreasures is a very nice source too plug plug lol!
I would like to try grafting my "no name" Adeniums when they get large enough. Is there anywhere in DG where I can learn more about how to go about this activity?
Yes but go to You tube instead and search adeniums
Many excellent videos
I have some seeds purchased from ebay due to arrive soon. I was wondering if anyone can advise me on the soil mixture to start the seeds.
I can advise you on how I start seeds of Adenium. I'll send you a D-mail.
Gerris, could you please copy the info to me as well?
