It is isnt't it... i also found out that its a very common plant in central America and grows wild. apprently it can develop a stem like that without much effort and time.

That's an incredible plant! Adenium species are such gorgeous blooming plants. I have Adenium obesum, which has been in full bloom for the last month or so and a very young arabicum which has a few flowers. I used to have more Adenium species. Two died in winter of 2011/2012 (maybe from over watering) as it was such a hot winter and I think I may have given them too much water.

Here's some of my Adenium photos:

I just posted a new photo yesterday.

I love Adenium species. They bloom so well and very young. Of course, the larger the plant the more spectacular the flowering.
