I love Adeniums for their interesting forms & beautiful flowers & have been growing 1 on my patio. This is all about repotting my Adenium obesum, aka Desert Rose, into a low, wide bowl. See the materials used & steps taken.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Remove the Adenium From the Grow Pot.
I did this by turning the plant on its side & gently stepping on the grow pot. I came right out like a dream!
Here’s the mix I use which is nice & chunky. It consists of prococo coconut coir chips, pumice & compost – adeniums love it!
Step 2: Put the Coffee Filter Over the Drain Holes & Add in the Mix to the Desired Depth.
Repotting is best done during the growing season, not while it’s dormant.
Step 3: Place the Adenium in the Pot.
Step 4: Fill in With the Rest of the Mix & a Couple of Small Handfuls of Compost.
Step 5: Let the Plant Settle in for a Couple of Days Before Watering.
I love my Adenium and can’t wait to see it grow and develop into a fascinating form. In the video, I said that I would show an Adenium which retails for $1400 but I was mistaken. Oops – it’s selling for $4000. Isn’t that baby fabulous?!
