Thanks! I do love it! I just wish my other two plants didn't die.

I hope to get a new white and maybe a purple (which is very rarely available) one, soon! :>)

I just bought an Ice Pink Desert Rose at my local store, they had no information for me as it was new to them as it is to me. Can you tell me how often I should water it? Thanks!

My Adenium obesum 'Ice Pink' died this past winter...and I'm still trying to figure out why? It was one of the warmest winter's on record here in San Diego. It's possible I may have over water because of the hot and dry winter weather. Desert Rose loves dry, well-drained soil.

That's very interesting. Do you know why it was named calachuchi?
