adeniums are not blooming yet but buds are forming again. in the meantime, the carnivorous plants decided to take over the blooming.

all of these gemmae are planted at the same time so it's sort of synchronized blooming :P/>

Hoho waiting for your good news for the adeniums.

Those flowers are quite pretty. Look just like strawberry flowers. Haha are you gonna try and pollinate them?

Btw what are those long, spindly plants on the top right of the pic?

these flowers are just too small for me to try pollination (my hands are big :P/>) these plants are size of 10cent coin.

those spindly plants ? Amaranth- green and red somehow they dont like singapore weather but still growing slowly though.

If you want a baobab bonsai, just look at adenium seedlings, lol

The bo tree is one of the biggest plant.

I think need cooler nights to induce flowers. World farm keep them out in full sun.
Don't know how they survive. What's your potting medium? This pot is in very heavy clay.

my potting medium is normal mixed soil actually with plenty of sheep poo (maybe they got a bit space and they can start multiplying)

they are pretty hardy actually considering how they survived with heavy clay, little water and hot sun.
Hot sun plus cold rainy nights => induce flowers ?

I suspect world farm doesn't water them, so they are potted in heavy clay. THe roots are not nice, and the tips of leaves are browning. Maybe add some ice in the evening to lower temperature and induce flowering?

cannot say dont water them at least can say well draining, the tuberose are waiting for the sky juice most of the time.

Didnt want to use ice yet (dont know how long and how frequent) plus i lazy also :hysterical:/>
