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!

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.

Like this one, 'Beauty Cloud', growing from seeds. I get very good germination rate from this vendor's seeds.

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, I feel much better now. So what I can expect is a bunch of plants that may look like Adenium 'Home Depot'?

Indeed!
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?

Gerris 2,

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.

Thanks,
