This is the true wild species from the rocky slopes of the island of Socotra, and not the "Thai Socotranum" hybrids often seen in the trade. It is still rare in cultivation. Here it grows from may or june to December, so it will be resting leafless from January to May or so.
Some botanists believe that the genus Adenium only consists of one species so this would be called: Adenium obesum subsp. socotranum
We offer a1-2 year old plant, Container size 10 cm. Plants can be sent bare rooted.
