I have a desert rose that consistently grows a couple leaves and then looses them - it has been doing this for more than a year (and has never flowered) almost since the day i got it. there are barely any roots. I\'ve tried various light/fertilizers/watering options but i think the leaves when the die look like pictures i\'ve seen of either fungus or mites. I don\'t see any mites anywhere on it (but if they are microscopic i guess i wouldn\'t) SO, i\'m wondering - do i spray the plant with Neem oil including what roots there are? The trunk is firm but not hard, no soft spots, and continues to grow (it was only about 6\" when i got it and now it is over 18\"
