Adenium is grown as a houseplant with its vibrant colours of 2″-3″ inch flowers in shades of red, pink, white, and yellow are show stoppers. Adenium is a deciduous succulent and drought tolerant plant because it stores water from the rainy season in its thick, bulbous roots and fat base trunk. Adenium can be made as excellent potted plants, container plants, and bonsai.
Adenium is grown as a houseplant in temperate regions. Numerous hybrids have been developed. Adeniums are appreciated for their colorful flowers, but also for their unusual, thick caudices. They can be grown for many years in a pot and are commonly used for bonsai. Because seed-grown plants are not genetically identical to the mother plant, desirable varieties are commonly propagated by grafting. Genetically identical plants can also be propagated by cutting. However, cutting-grown plants do not tend to develop a desirable thick caudex as quickly as seed-grown plants.
