Thats lovely Justjan....I have just started growing some Adenium Obesum. which have just started to get a 1st little branch....How old is this one? Do they take many years to flower?

This one is very old. My mum rescued it from her neighbour who threw it away after it looked like it was dying. I took over this plant in 2003 when I shifted house. I think it's 8-10 yrs old. Now it doesn't flower so frequently as compared to 2003-2005. With lots of sun and not too much water, yours shd flower pretty soon. :)
