tiG,
Some way I have managed to keep mine alive for 5 years now...I think the key is not to over water it.

Newnan, GA(Zone 8a)

we may give it another shot now that I'm getting better at taking care of things:)

Glory, do you keep it ooutside all summer then in on a window sill during the winter? Does that window face south wiht lots of light?

Chariton, IA(Zone 5b)

Kell, you did it. I knew you would. Very pretty.

(Zone 9b)

Too pretty to not get it! He had a huge dark pink one also, a hybrid. I was good and walked on by!

Chariton, IA(Zone 5b)

Dark PinK? Wow, I bet it was something. If I lived out there, I probably would have chosen it.

sure Brugie, egg me on!

kell I always manage to kill this plant..I water them too much in winter and keep them too cool in winter..this plant wants warm conditions during winter sleep.

(Zone 9b)

I will try!!! I would hate to kill it! That is why I didnot buy the other one. I wanted to see how I did with this one. I have no GH. Wish me luck..lots of it!

Kell,
I pretty much keep mine in the greenhouse all the time....I have a 60% shade cloth on my greenhouse.

(Zone 9b)

Kell, Adenium's are very forgiving plants, provided they are not overwatered. they can withstand draught, it case u forgot to water them. just place by the window to get lots of light, and they will do just fine.

i was looking on ebay today for some toner. is that what you do, sell toner on ebay?

High Desert, CA(Zone 8a)

we sell ink refills for Lexmark's & Compaq printers. new cartridges for Epson and Canon printers. if u are looking for toner, u must have a laser printer? sorry we do not have toners.

we have printers of the above named printers to test the products we sell to give proper and accurate instruction for the ink refills - black and color inks.

I need it for a copier at work. I just realized I have been paying double to the company that has our service contract!

High Desert, CA(Zone 8a)

when we had a laser printer, we bid on ebay for toners. we gave the laser printer to the UPS delivery person, since he is so nice and prompt in delivering the supplies we order.

if ur lucky on ebay, u will find one that will sell them so cheap! good luck.
