|We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.|
Adenium swazicums are similar to adenium obesums in behavior. They too are caudiciforms with a bulbous caudex, (thick stem) where they store water. Although adeniums are succulents they are also sometimes like tropicals, in that they like lots of water in hot weather when they are flowering and have lots of leaves. Be careful not to give so much water as to rot the roots but water generously and allow to dry out. Fertilize during growing season. If they become leggy, cut the stem at a pleasing height forcing it to branch out. Frost sensitive.
