Everything related to adenium of mine was started from a private adenium group in facebook...From there, i learned how to grow adenium and how to graft adenium. Grafting is the most Interesting part! & from there also i started to purchase adenium online...OMG! my money gone! The earning from seeds and plants selling was trade with adenium!! >_<
Just wanna share some of the adenium that i had purchased online before..Don be surprise to see the adenium, they were all bald (botak head). Soil is prohibited to be brought out from foreign country. That's the reason they have to be in bare root. They look exactly the same like ginseng root or white radish right?...Now, they are really ugly..but once they started to bloom, they can really make you smiling wide. Don worry, adenium is a very durable plant. It can last up to 3-6 months in bare root form..Therefore, they are safe through transportation.
Do you all realize that these grafted adenium actually have 2 parts? The upper thinner branches are actually the cutting from the favorite adenium. They might have very nice color (yellow, purple, black, red etc) and multilayer. The lower fat caudex is from the normal type of pink adenium. The cutting from the favorite adenium was grafted on the normal type of adenium
|They were from Thailand. About RM30-35 per piece if not mistaken|
|Special fragrant adenium from India...Maybe it cost me RM50-80 per piece..can't remember|
|Taiwan mari..RM40 per piece. Adenium from Taiwan have brighter color body. |
|Made in Malaysia...normal type of adenium. Gardener always use its fat caudex for grafting purposes.|
|Just planted the RM40 Taiwan adenium, but they were attacked by next door cats! Most of the pot were terbalik and the cats leave down some souvenir there...speechless! Siapa mao ganti rugi ha?|
