The Desert Rose (Adenium obesum) is a botanical marvel, gracing spaces with its slow yet captivating growth, advancing only about 12 inches annually.

Originating from Africa, the Middle East, and Madagascar, the desert rose brings a touch of exotic allure wherever it’s planted. Whether adorning indoor sanctuaries or thriving in outdoor landscapes, its adaptability makes it a cherished addition to any location.

Desert Rose Care:

Here are the main care requirements for growing desert rose:

  • Desert rose needs careful water management and lots of sunlight
  • The plant prefers consistently warm temperatures
  • Likes well-draining, sandy soil
For optimal growth, place your desert rose in a sunny spot. Aim for 5 to 6 hours of sunlight daily, ideally in a south-facing bright windowsill or sunroom.
In spring and summer, keep the desert rose’s soil moist but not waterlogged. Check the soil regularly and let it dry out fully before watering again.
Maintain warm temperatures for your plant at all times, as it’s sensitive to cold. Avoid prolonged exposure to temperatures below 50°F (10°C), as it can lead to rapid decline. It thrives between 65°F and 90°F (18°C to 32°C) but won’t likely survive prolonged frost outdoors.
Boost your desert rose’s growth and flower potential with diluted liquid fertilizer, applied once a month during its active growth phase. Avoid fertilizing during its dormant period.
