The desert rose makes a lovely houseplant. It will be delivered in a nursery pot. If you need to repot it, it is best to use a potting mixture for this plant by mixing regular potting compost with sharp sand or fine gravel. Choose a pot with holes in the base and cover the bottom with a layer of gravel or hydro granules. Put some compost in the pot and plant the desert rose at the correct depth. Fill with compost, press firmly and water immediately after planting. Place the pot in a sunny area.
Water Adenium obesum moderately, using less in partial shaded positions and very little during winter. They do not like to stand in excess water. Feed with a house plant fertiliser once every two weeks along with the irrigation water during the flowering period. Do not feed in the winter. The desert rose can tolerate both drought and heat. Put the plant in a sunny spot on the windowsill. In winter it may lose its leaves. During this time keep the plant even drier and place the pot in a cool place (10-12° C). In early spring as the weather gets warmer start to increase the amount of water given.
