Adenium 'Thai Socotranum' Family: Apocynaceae. A very unusual Adenium cultivar from Thailand. This variety is known for having a short stocky caudex and many short branches. It produces large roots that can be raised when the plant is larger. Flowers are pink. Can become quite large in time. Easy to grow, but requires warm temperatures in the winter (minimum of 50 degrees). When in leaf water regularly but don't let the soil stay wet. Keep fairly dry in the winter or whenever it drops its leaves. Likes full sun in humid regions (i.e Eastern US) but protect from hot afternoon summer sun in arid areas.
Despite the name this is a form of Adenium arabicum NOT Adenium socotranum. The "story" of this cultivar is that it is a cross between those two species but nothing about this plant resembles the true Adenium socotranum.
You will receive the plant shown in the first two images. Plants shown in a 6"diameter pot. Your plant may or may not have flowers or leaves when you receive it. Last image shows a mature plant shown growing in a ~3 foot diameter pot (really!).
