Description

This mix is for a variety of Adenium with black coloration! Some seeds in this mix will produce double flowers. All seeds are shades of black, some with deep red, and some with white sections on the flower.

Adenium obesum is evergreen or drought-deciduous succulent shrub. It can grow to 1–3 m (3.3–9.8 ft) in height. The flowers are tubular, 2–5 cm (0.79–1.97 in) long, with the outer portion 4–6 cm (1.6–2.4 in) diameter with five petals, resembling those of other related genera such as Plumeria and Nerium. The flowers tend to red and pink, often with a whitish blush outward of the throat. Common names include Sabi star, kudu, mock azalea, impala lily and desert rose.

It is a poisonous species of flowering plant. Adenium obesum produces a sap in its roots and stems that contains cardiac glycosides. This sap is used as arrow poison for hunting large game throughout much of Africa and as a fish toxin.

Adenium obesum is a popular houseplant and bonsai in temperate regions. It requires a sunny location and a minimum indoor temperature in winter of 10 °C (50 °F). It thrives on a xeric watering regime as required by cacti. A. obesum is commonly propagated by seed.

This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

Seeds per pack:

Availability: If these seeds are showing out of stock, we strongly recommend joining our wait list, as these seeds have a very shorty viability window, and this helps ensure you get the freshest seeds possible! If they are available, they will only be available for a short time.

Germination: Start these seeds indoors right away for best germination rates. Obtain a container with holes in the bottom, to allow water to drain. Use a mix of 50:50 compost/soil and sand. Place the seeds just under the surface of a growing mix, and water them in. These seeds grow in temperatures of 25°C-29°C (77-84F). A heat mat can be helpful. It is very important to keep the soil moist until germination, and do not let the soil dry until the plants are formed. The seeds generally germinate in 10-30 days. After germination the heat mat is no longer required.
