Yes, I really like this Desert Rose. I just purchased it a couple of months ago for $5.00.

I've never seen a Desert Rose have flowers change from white to pastel pink before.

No I've never seen one that does it either ... for $5.00 I'd consider it a bargain!!

I have bought several but a lot die as they need light for so many hours a day, also the cold, I still have one alive that I can see not sure about the other two I got the year before last, but I have seen a chap have one indoors he leave a lamp on his was doing fine. But I have nt the room to have indoors.
